The college had good placements in 2020, even during the pandemic.

Placements: In my course, there are 90-100 students. Packages offered after BSMS integrated course are not high, but the average package is 6-7 Lacs per annum. R&D companies recruit from here, like Loreal. 50-60% of students got internships, but they don't generally opt for it, and they rather go for PhD and higher studies to have a better chance in placements.

Infrastructure: The rooms are good and spacious, with good Wi-Fi 24 hours. There is a very good library for us to gather information. The food is not much good. Some...

It is a dream college for research-minded students.

Placements: As IISER Mohali is a research institute, students generally don't join to get salary packages or jobs. They come to gain knowledge and do research. Almost 80% of the students get a PhD in world's reputed institutes like MIT, Stanford University, Howard University, etc. In our senior batch, 136 students out of 174 students got a PhD abroad. Remaining students are doing their PhD in top institutes of India like IISC Bangalore, TIRF, IITs, CSIR, etc.

Infrastructure: IISERs are the youngest institutes of India, so its infrastructure is built with modern technology. Hostels are new and have 8 floors with 4 lifts in a single hostel. Every area of the campus is covered with excellent Wi-Fi signals, and speed of Wi-Fi reaches up to 300 Mbps. Every hostel has its own mess operated by its own caterers. So at one time, you can get 4 different menus for food. Food of every mess is tasty. It has a modern football stadium, 4 badminton courts, basketball court, tennis ...

The college is excellent and value for money.

Placements: Very less percentage of students want to go for a job, and others go for a PhD. The salary package offered is 17 to 2.4 crores per annum. Lake and Amazon are the top recruiters. More than 80% of the students get internships every year here or in various parts of the world. The course is intense in basic science and provides an ample amount of knowledge with research experience.

Infrastructure: Our institute has a decent Wi-Fi facility although sometimes becomes dysfunctional. Labs are also quite good. Large lecture rooms are there. Library is very large having ample of books and if we want any special book, we can request t...

An awesome college with flexible curriculum.

Placements: Dr. Reddy's Lab has started coming here from 2019 for on-campus placements for chemical science students with a package of around 5.5 LPA. This year, Khan Academy has also made an offer. Most of the students don't take jobs as they pursue PhDs abroad in either Europe or the USA. Other students who don't want to pursue PhD get placed on-campus or off-campus placements like faculty in reputed coaching institutes like Llen, Fiitjee etc.

Infrastructure: The infrastructure is very good. Wi-Fi is good in hostel rooms....

However, in our institute, in the 1st year, the students are encouraged to pick up courses from PCMB and EES as well. Hence, it would be good if one learns a little math or biology before coming to the institute in case you have not done it in 11th and 12th.

To secure a seat in any one of the IISERs via the JEE Advanced channel all you need is a rank under 10k in JEE Advanced. While for IISER Mohali the JEE Advanced ranks below 8000 are good enough for getting admission here in asked category.
