Selection for the Awards
Please read carefully because the JN Tata Loan scholarship is highly competitive. It is a matter of pride to be called a JN Tata Scholar.Staying true to our founder Jamsetjee Nusserwanjee's vision of rewarding the brightest and the best, we follow a rigorous selection process. Candidates may note the following 
points:
Apart from consistent academic performance, we give importance to participation in both co-curricular and extra-curricular activities. A good GRE/GMAT/TOEFL/IELTS score is extremely important for those applying overseas. If you have received a low GRE score, it may be advisable to improve upon it, to increase your chances of receiving the loan scholarship.
The statement of purpose carries considerable weight in the selection process. We have provided some guidance on our website on how you can construct a good statement of  purpose. Please ensure that your statement of purpose is written by you and free from plagiarism. Many students fill the SoP with too many biographical details which is not  required.
The online test
After the initial screening of applications, some candidates are shortlisted to undergo an online test, which will be based on the lines of Thinking Skills Assessment (TSA), on  Sunday, 17th April, 2022. This is not a subject-specific test. The TSA contains some numerical questions too but does not presume anything more than knowledge of arithmetic and  does not involve difficult calculations. The timing and other details will be informed accordingly through separate emails.
General Instruction for an online test :-

The Interview
Candidates shortlisted based on the online test will be called for an interview, the final leg in the selection process.

The rigorous technical interview, conducted from April onwards, in person at Mumbai or through video conference via Skype/Microsoft Teams/Zoom by the Director of the Endowment and a subject expert, carries the highest weightage in the selection process. ‘Technical’ refers to evaluation of candidates’ understanding of their subjects – current and future. Candidates should come prepared with knowledge of their subjects and chosen areas of interest with any specialisation, as shown in their application form. They will be examined in depth and detail in their current subject and chosen area of study and greater weight will be given to depth of understanding of the chosen area of study and career path. Candidates in the beginning of the 2nd year would be assessed also on their first year/semester transcripts of the overseas studies.
