In this phase applicants are required to submit a STATEMENT OF PURPOSE, which is to be sent to us online. This is the most important aspect of the entrance test because it is the first impression that you as an applicant will create by articulatingwho you are, your purpose for applying for the particular program, whyyou are a good candidate and what are your future goals.
