About JEST
The Joint Entrance Screening Test (JEST) is a common qualifying test for admissions to Ph.D. programmes in Physics at premier Indian research institutions (see Participating Institutes) and a Ph.D. programme in Theoretical Computer Science at the Institute of Mathematical Sciences.

Using JEST results, each institute will call a limited number of candidates for its own selection procedure depending, on its requirements.
All selected candidates will receive Research Fellowships from the respective institutes.

The JEST exam is used to shortlist candidates and does not automatically entitle an applicant to get a Research Fellowship.
