St Xavier’s College to conduct online entrance test for PG courses on July 22
St Xavier’s College, Park Street, will hold online entrance tests on July 22 for admission to its postgraduate courses.
“Last week, we had decided against holding any online entrance tests at the undergraduate level. But at the postgraduate level over the years we have seen a much lesser number of candidates apply. So, we will hold tests,” principal Father Dominic Savio told The Telegraph.
At the undergraduate level the candidates will be admitted on the basis of weightage awarded to plus-II scores.
Applications for admission to the postgraduate courses will be accepted between June 30 and July 15.
The entrance tests for all departments will be of 90 minutes duration and will consist of a mix of MCQ and/or short questions and essay-type questions.
Father Savio said the question would be emailed to the prospective students. They have to write the answers within the pre-announced duration and mail those back.
“If any candidate writes to us about factors like connectivity issues, the college will make arrangements. They can come to the campus and use the connectivity facility to appear for the tests,” he said.
St Xavier’s offers two-year post-graduate programmes in commerce, English, political science, sociology, economics, physics, computer science, Bengali, education and microbiology.
On an average 400 candidates apply against each discipline.
The college has introduced master’s in education from this year.
Detailed information with regard to syllabus and format of entrance test for each department, will be published on the college website.
The entire admission process from applications to enrolment, will be conducted online.
