skills and research aptitude

There are two sub-sections in these categories broadly representing the areas of Literature and Language. The Language portion consists of English Language/Literature Teaching and English Linguistics. Candidates are expected to write their dissertations only in the broad area in which they choose to write their answers, i.e., Literature or Language.

This section may also be subdivided into language and literature. Candidates must answer the question that relates to their broad area of research.

In addition, there is an Oral Test worth 25% marks for short‑listed candidates at both M.Phil. and Ph.D. levels.
