I have been getting a lot of queries regarding the admission procedures in DSE, JNU and IGIDR so i thought of putting all the details i know into this post.
Starting with IGIDR, The last date for sending the completed application forms is March 17. There will be a written test comprising verbal ability and mathematics. Candidates should have taken Math during 12th standard. Those who pass the test are called for an interview. Only about 30 seats are available. It is an institution of repute concentrating on environmental economics.
DSE-It is a part of the Delhi University and there is a common entrance. We have to register with the university and with the colleges separately. The admission notice will come during the first week of may. DSE is the best place to be. Selection is made on the performance in the written test. It consists of microeconomics, macroeconomics, mathematical economics and statistics.
JNU-It offers two masters in economics, one the usual masters(which i prefer) and one with specialization in world economy. The last dates for sending the applications by post is march 17. The previous question papers can also be got from the university.
Thats all for now.
All the best!
