what is the competition for physically disabled person in TISSNET for HRM nd LR course?

Aishwarya Kadam 27th Dec, 2019


The PWD cut-off for TISSNET 2019 was 51 marks out of 100 for the HRM & LR course. This year you need to give the TISSMAT exam as well along with the TISSNET for the HRM and LR course. If you clear the cut-off of the TISSNET exam and perform well in TISSMAT, Pre-Interview Test (PIT) and Personal Interview (PI) one has a good chance to convert the course. This time there is a sectional cut off for the GK section in TISSNET exam, you need to bring minimum 14 marks in GK out of 40 marks. There are no sectional cut offs for English and Maths section,  both come for 30 marks each.

The number of PWD candidates who will appear for the TISSNET and TISSMAT exam is not known, both the exams are going to be conducted on 4th January 2020. Also the TISSMAT exam will be conducted for the first time so we don't have the previous years data regarding it. Predicting the competition is therefore tough. All you can do is focus on your preparation.

Good luck.
