TISS-NET (TISS National Entrance Test)
TISS-NET is a computer based common screening test for all Masters Programs across all the campuses. It is a 100mins test and consists of 100 objective types multiple choice questions (MCQ). TISS-NET is conducted to shortlist candidates for Stage 2 based on the TISS NET Mark and the ratio on the number of seats announced for individual programs under each category. Hence it is a short listing process no reservation rules are applied at this stage. All rules related to reservations of seats under different categories and priorities will be applied only at the time of final seat allocation through merit list / wait list.
Short listing for Stage 2 will be done on the basis of the candidates’ aggregate TISS NET Score. The same ratio will be applied to the number of seats under each Category thereby having candidates from every category getting shortlisted for stage 2 in proportionate numbers.

The GK section of TISSNET 2022 continued to be a slightly tricky section of the paper. The English Proficiency section was easy to moderate, with 8 FIB questions (based on grammar& vocabulary). The Mathematics & Logical Reasoning section was easy, and was undoubtedly the most-scoring section of the paper. Barring a few questions from DI, the remaining part of the section was very easy.

This section was dominated by Fill in the blanks both grammar and vocab based (doable). The main areas covered were: RCs, sentence completion, Error spotting, antonyms, Synonyms, & Para Jumbles. The RCs were easy to moderate in terms of understanding. One of the RC was on Chinese wrestling (very easy) and another one was on Aviation sector (post covid). Although, one or two questions had tricky options, the candidates managed to attempt the questions well. Para jumbling was time consuming. Logical & Critical reasoning questions were also conventional and manageable. An attempt of 20-22 questions could be considered good in order to score well.
