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.

While in case of several UG courses, the admission can be direct on basis of class 12th marks, for institutes offering PG courses in advertising, there are usually domain specific entrance examinations. The main entrance examinations for Journalism courses are:

  • SET - Symbiosis Entrance Test for UG courses at SIMC - Symbiosis Institute of Media & Communication
