Career in Mass communication and journalism after 12th - details, entrance exams and institutes


I am a class 12th student and want to take up a course in journalism, what do I need to do? Which entrance exams should I take up? Also, please tell me about some good institutes to pursue a course in mass communication and journalism.

Answer - You will be eligible to take up journalism in any recognized university only if you have 55% in your 12th exam (any stream). Students who have cleared the board exam with English as one of the best four subjects, can apply for this course.

After 12th, one can take up BA in Journalism and Mass Communication. Some colleges offer this course on the basis of the 12th board exam result. But, a few colleges do conduct entrance tests for this.

Delhi University carries out a Common Entrance Test for Journalism (CETJ) for the Bachelor's course.
At Symbiosis Institute of Media and Communication, there are two rounds of interview. The first round is Symbiosis Entrance Test (SET) which includes objective questions. The second round consists of writing ability test as well as personal interaction.

A few colleges like Amrita University conduct only a personal interview. SRM University takes in students for BA Journalism on the basis of their 12th marks.

Bachelors in Journalism and Mass Communication is usually a three years course.
