Hi, The basic eligibility for undergraduate courses in 10 + 2 passed (with 50% and above) in any discipline. There are some institutes/universities that take a common Entrance Examination for all their Bachelor courses. In case of Postgraduate courses however, the aspirants often have a written test followed by group discussion and personal interview for selection in good institutes offering postgraduate degree and diploma courses in Journalism.
