IIT Madras has opened applications for the second round of the qualifier process. Candidates will be given access to online classes, a support team, and 400 hours of live session programs to help them prepare for the exam. Each course had a separate discussion forum, where students and experts discussed related topics. There are three different stages in this program - Foundation, Diploma, and Degree. Students can choose their own pace while registering for courses and, upon completion, receive a Certificate, Diploma, or a Degree at various exit points from IIT Madras.
The selected candidates went through multiple qualifying rounds. They had to score a minimum required percentage in the assignments for four courses to be eligible for an in-person qualifier exam. This was followed by three written assignments and a final examination. After this, a list of selected students was released.
IIT Madras’ online degree program was launched in June 2020 and over 10,000 candidates had applied in under a week of applications opening.
