Is it easier to enter ISRO with a BTech degree or a master's degree?

The path to ISRO is the same for B. Tech or M. Tech. And you join even to the same degree. Previous people with M.Tech were called in for their first promotion interview in 2 years, which is usually a minimum of 4 at ISRO. If you joined as a B.Tech, you will only be called after 4 years for your promotion from SC to SD grade. But now ISRO has abolished that system and both will be called only after a minimum of 4 years. That is if you perform extremely well and get incredible CR every year. So if you can get in with your B.Tech it makes more sense considering there are no added perks for M. Techians

Each year ISRO hires ECE graduates for the position of Scientific Engineer 'C'. This year they released the ad in February. Therefore, you can expect the next recruitment announcement around February 2018. This exam consists of two stages:

  1. Written test: It consists of 80 questions. It is 240 points where you get +3 for each correct answer and -1 for each incorrect answer. It is a completely technical exam. No aptitude, English and GK questions are asked. Usually the limit is around 50%, that is, 120 points. Please note that this stage is only qualifying. These brands do not carry over. Therefore, even if you have just crossed the boundary, you still have a very good chance of being selected, as the final selection is independent of the scores obtained at this stage, which is not the case in other government or PSU exams that give more weight. to the written stage than to the interview (generally 85:15). If you clear the limit for the written test, you will be called in for the next round, that is, an interview.
  2. Interview: This round is very important as only your selection decides. In this round, you have to face a panel that is usually made up of 8 to 10 panelists. All of these panelists are either high-level scientists or high-level IIT professors, each of whom specializes in one or two topics. So don't even think that you can fool them. The person sitting in the center is the chair of the panel. Ask the panelists one by one to ask questions. In this round, you must obtain at least 60% grades in the interview to be eligible for selection.

Note: You do not need to receive the admission card even if you have filled out the application form correctly and completely in all respects. This is because ISRO has an internal shortlist based on their grades in B.Tech, XII and X. Every year, more than 30% of candidates do not even receive the admission card, that is, they are not even selected to draft the exam.
