Harshita Gupta 15th Jan, 2020
Hey Avinash,

According to the eligibility criteria, the candidate should be of Indian nationality only. So, if your daughter is of Indian nationality, then she is eligible.
Taking about minimum qualification, the candidate must have passed HSC or equivalent qualification with Physics and mathematics as compulsory subjects and one of the subjects from chemistry/biology/biotechnology/vocational training.
The minimum score should be 50% agregate of all the subjects.
There is no such notification regarding the place of completion of 12th. They have stated that 10+2 should be from a recognised board but it hasn't been mentioned that it should be from India only.
Furthermore, the candidates who are children of NRI/OCI/POI or whose parents are indian workers in the gulf countries are exempted from giving the examination. This means that your daughter will not have to give the examination, but she will be given direct admission based on the scores in the qualifying examination (HSC or equivalent).
But, make sure you have all the necessary documents while you apply.
Incase you still have doubt, you can contact their helpline numbers.
