Only after filling the vacancies by such candidates, the candidates possessing a qualifying Bachelor’s degree with valid GATE/GPAT score from any other course/branch will be considered for admission. (Level 2 - See Table 3.3.2)
Preparation of the merit list will be done at two levels, Level 1 and Level 2 separately.
Sponsored candidates without valid GATE/ GPAT score will be treated as Level 2 and/or Level 3, as
applicable and separate merit lists will be generated for them.
Level 1: Merit list will be prepared on valid GATE/ GPAT score in the specified subject and no written test or interview will be conducted. Admissions through Level 2 shall be made only if any seats remain vacant after exhausting the merit list from Level 1.

However, no marks will be assigned to the interview. Handbook 2017-18 |Institute of Chemical Technology | 127
