Department of biotechnology-Biotechnology Eligibility Test (DBT-BET-JRF) an exam exclusively for biotechnology students in India. If you are a post graduate in Biotechnology, this is your exam and don’t miss it. The exam is conducted by Department of Biotechnology exclusively for Biotechnology students across India. The number of post graduates in biotechnology is on the rise and after your PG the default option is CSIR-UGC-JRF-NET exam where you have to compete with students from all streams of life science. In that exam also you may not be familiar with questions from basic sciences like botany or zoology where you have to look into lot of areas in biology in order to get through. Actually, you don’t have an advantage in having a PG in biotechnology that often demands good expenditure. With this background, this is the only exam where you get questions only from your subject.
Biotechnology students should have some exams.

Why you should write this exam?
If you qualify this exam, you will be getting a fellowship amount as similar as CSIR/UGC-JRF 16000/- for the first two years. You have to submit the progress report every second year. At the end of second year, you have to conduct a JRF assessment. Remember, for lectureship eligibility still you have to qualify NET.
