A number of reputable institutes in the country come together to perform a common entrance Screening Test (JOKE) for enrollment of students in doctoral / integrated M.Sc.-doctoral programs in physics (including various interdisciplinary research in physics) and theoretical computer science.
Jester is conducted for the selection of candidates to be interviewed for admission to Ph. D. Programmes in Physics / Theoretical Informatics in these institutions in the country.
Applications are invited from motivated students, with consistently good academic background, to appear in jest leading to enrollment in a Ph. D. program in physics (including various interdisciplinary research in physics) / theoretical computer at any of 24 prizes participating institutions
Institutions participating in jest are:
UGC DAE CSR, Indore
