TISS NATIONAL ENTRANCE TEST (TISSNET)
TISS 2013 - 2015

Tata Institute of Social Sciences (TISS)

The TISS in Mumbai was established in 1936. It is the first school of social work in India. TISS was a pioneering effort, characteristic of the Sir Dorabji Tata Trust (SDTT).It was earlier known as Sir Dorabji Tata Graduate School of Social Work but it was renamed as the Tata Institute of Social Sciences in the year of 1944. The year 1964 was an important landmark in the history of the Institute, when it was recognized as a Deemed University by the University Grants Commission (UGC) of India.

Since then, the TISS has been expanding continuously in terms of educational programs and infrastructure. And now the institute is offering various programs in different streams like health and hospital administration, human resource management, personnel management, research methodology and so on. However, it offers one of best post graduate courses in Human Resources Management (HRM) in Asia.

For getting admission in any Master's Program offered by TISS, securing good marks in TISS written exam is very vital. For admission in PG programs in the academic year 2013 - 2015, it is mandatory to appear for the TISS 2013 written exam and secure good marks.

TISS 2013: Important Features

  • 1. The first noteworthy feature of the TISS exam is that it hasn't had negative marking, sectional time limits or sectional cutoffs, at least for the last 2-3 years. This means that you have all the reason to focus on the sections you are good at and still can manage to score good in those which troubles you a lot. It also gives you the opportunity in the end to try your luck and take blind guesses for the questions which you were not able to solve.
  • 2. The second thing is that applicants to the HRM program have to take two tests. The first one is common across all the 16 post graduate courses of TISS and it seeks to test your basic cognitive ability. The second test is different for each course and the one for the HRM program is more or less like any other management entrance 3. Both the tests happen differently and one has to do well in both the test in order to get to the next stage.
