Students will be given an opt-out option in which students will be able to opt out of the course after three years and will get a graduate degree in Journalism.The initial plan was to take admissions through entrance exam but since it’s too late to conduct entrance exam hence the governing body of the school decided to go with cut-offs. However, if the governing body decides, then it can go for admissions through entrance exam next year.
