One thought on “MGU Kottayam PhD Admission 2018 – Application Form, Eligibility, Dates

  1. I have cleared NET. Hence I presume I’m exempted from appearing from Written Aptitude Test(WAT).
    My question is – How do I apply for Phd program in MG university? Is there a separate application form for those candidates who are exempted from WAT? Please clarify.
