An Entrance Exam is the mode for getting
admission into various undergraduate, post graduate and professional degree

JEST is Joint Entrance Screening Test. It is a screening test
conducted for the candidates who want to pursue MSc, Integrated PhD and PhD
programmes in Physics, Theoretical Computer Science, Neuroscience and
