    1. You should have passed the ‘10+2’examination with Physics and Mathematics along with any one of Chemistry / Biotechnology / Biology / Computer Science /Computer Application as compulsory subjects. If you belong to general category then you must have 45% marks in the above three subjects together. Please confirm your eligibility.
