TISS Merit List 2024

Admissions to Masters Programmes at TISS is done through a two-stage process with three components. Therefore, all the applicants must know the TISSNET 2024 selection process. We have explained the process of getting admission at various campuses of Tata Institute of Social Sciences in the section given below:

Stage 1: TISS-NET (TISS National Entrance Test)

TISS-NET is a common screening test for all Masters Programmes across all the campuses and centers. TISS-NET is aimed at shortlisting candidates for Stage 2 based on differential cut-offs for different programs depending on the number of seats, the number of applicants, and the scores secured by the candidates.

The Score for the TISS- NET will be used only to shortlist the candidates who are eligible for Stage 2 and the score will not be added to the final score for selection.

PLEASE NOTE: Candidates applying for (i) MA Human Resource Management & Labour Relations (HRM &LR) and (ii) MA Organisation Development, Change and Leadership (ODCL) of Mumbai Campus will have a Management Aptitude Test (TISS-MAT) conducted along with TISS-NET for 45 marks for a duration of 30 mins. The score for MAT will be added to the PIT score of the shortlisted candidates while preparing the final score for the selection.

Stage 2:  PIT / PI (Pre-Interview Test and Personal Interview)

PIT/PI are programme specific and might have variations across different programmes. Some of the programmes have Group Discussions (GD) or Aptitude Test (AT) as part of the PIT. The details of programme specific components are provided against each of the programmes.

N.B. The scores for PIT and PI will be in aggregate in the ratio 70:30 for the final selection. In the case of candidates applying for (i) MA HRM&LR and (ii) MA ODCL the scores for TISS-MAT, PIT and PI will be aggregated in the ratio 30:40:30.

TISS Merit List Preparation

The candidates who have appeared in the TISSNET 2024 can check their result from the official website. After downloading the TISSNET Result 2024 the candidates will have to check the process of the admission and selection criteria. The admission council of TISS Mumbai prepares the TISS Merit List of the candidates who can appear in Stage 2 of the Personal Interview and Group Discussion. Therefore, we are giving the mechanism of the preparation of the merit list of TISS NET in the section given below:

  • Programme wise Open (Unreserved) Merit List (OML) will be prepared on the basis of (i) the aggregate score as above and (ii) the candidate’s preference of programmes as given in the online application form.
  • OML will be prepared without consideration of the category they have applied, thus providing an opportunity for all candidates to get selected in the OML depending on their aggregate score.
  • After considering all the candidates in OML, separate Category wise Merit List (CML) will be drawn for the number of seats reserved for each category as per the Government of India / University Grants Commission regulations on the matter.

TISS NET Counselling 2024

The candidates who have qualified through all the stages of the screening for TISS Admission are eligible to sit for the counselling. After the declaration of the TISS NET Merit List the students can check their names on the list and go for the counselling. In the counselling round, the students will have to report at the counselling venue with all their original documents. The students must carry their original as well as the photocopy of the document at the counselling venue. After successful verification of the documents, the candidates will have to pay the course fees in the office. The seat of the candidate will be finalized only after the payment of the fees. However, in case a candidate’s name does not appear in the 1st Merit List, they can wait for the waitlist.

Rules for the preparation of the wait-list

1.   Preparation of Wait List for each of the programme and categories will be done following the same rules as for Merit List.

2.   Candidates who get admission to the programme of their first preference will not be on wait-lists for any other programme mentioned in their list of preferences.

3.   Candidates, who receive admission in a programme lower in their order of preferences, will be retained in the wait-list of a preference higher in the order, till the seats in that programme are filled.

4.   When a candidate who has already taken admission in a programme as per the first merit list is subsequently offered a higher preference when the waitlist is activated, such candidate will be moved into the programme of higher preference and they will have no claim for the lower preference. In such cases, no requests for retaining the admission in the lower preference will be entertained.
