Points to remember:

  • Your completed application form is a very critical document that can be a deal breaker if you're careless in preparing it. Application forms mostly include a synopsis of personal, academic and professional accomplishments.
  • Ensure that you print/photocopy copies of the application form (even if it is online) before you start, as you may make errors while filling a form. You may need to revise the content of your form details a number of times before finalising the same. Use of simple language is recommended. You do not need to impress by using a multitude of adjectives. Your accomplishments should speak for themselves. Even though you may use a spell-checker, get someone you trust to read through everything, and look for typos or grammatical errors. Once you are assured of the content, proceed to submitting the form - offline or online, as the case may be.
  • It is recommended that you maintain a file with a copy of your application and all the documents, including the copy of the DD that you sent to the Institute, for future reference.
