Hi, I have completed my graduation but I have not received my degree yet..will there be an issue because of this while filling the tissnet form? And what all other documents are need to be uploaded while filling up the form? I am from general category.

Aman Raj Student Expert 19th Oct, 2019

Hello Ashi

I think almost all the form filling procedure requires any one proof of your eligibility, either it is GATE or TISSNET,

As you have mentioned that your degree has not arrived yet so in that case you can upload your penultimate semester mark sheet or course completion certificate.

But at the time of counselling you must have all the details with you.


what happens if a nc-obc candidate clears the cutoff and if by any chance during interview the nc-obc certificate has a minute discrepancy, will he be considered for general category (provided he clears the cut off for a general candidate)?

Rehan Alam Student Expert 14th Oct, 2019

Dear Aspirant,

You have not specified your situation completely. However, according to the information you provided, the minor problems will be like there is something which is non readable,etc. If such type of problem arises and that too after the completion of process, then the authorities might give you some time to produce a new document without any such problem.

While on the other hand if the problem os of bigger nature like it is the central OBC certificate that is required and you have the state's certificate, or the certificate is expired a long time ago, then this might lead to no reservation and you'll be evaluated as a general category student.

Hope this helps. Thank you.

Aman Raj Student Expert 15th Sep, 2019

Hello Kirat

For applying to TISSNET you should have your bachelor's degree with all the arrears cleared. It doesn't matter how many arrears you have at present and how many you had.

Just provide them your 4th Semester Marksheet for the eligibility. But at the time of admission you must have your degree or Course Completion certificate.
