Sir,is it compulsory that the leader of the team be a teacher? Shouldn't any one of the students be the leader?

You could, but he must have at least Masters Degree in pharmaceutical sciences. PhD student can be a leader.

1) can an team consist of the team leader and team members of different colleges? YES ! Team members can be from different college. In this year (Skills Test 2010), we already have team like that (Team "Atharvana"") 2) is there any word limit for writing an short note on the four topics provided by you! (escpecially on the fourth topic) No word limit . Short is sweet . We will check for your english writing skills and especially it was written on your own or not . We do not encourage copy & paste tigers . 3) the short note on the topic 4 is just an summary of the presentaion which we are intented to present right? Not really . Its again to see your creativity in writing the topic of your choice. I am not sure what you mean by presentation. When we have lot of team applications, we will select teams based on above four topics. Please note that not all teams applied will not be selected for the contest. 4) when will be given the presentation area to upload the full article? You mean to say ???? I am sorry ..i did not get it.

If all from one college, Dean could include all in one letter. If all from different colleges, then need to produce supporting letter from the deans of respective institutions.

i have a querry, as given in the instructions that we need to send an short note on the four topics! in case of the fourth one do we need to send an complete information or a summary type short note. as you have told that if the team is selected we would be getting an place to blog, does it means that, when we get an place to blog then we have to upload the whole information or do we need to give an complete information in the fist mail for the selection itself! actually i am trying to prepare an review on a topic of my interest. i have a doubt in the quantity of submission as the whole article or just a short note type. i hope i am not bothering you a lot!... thanking you rajakrishna
Admin 123's picture

First send us short notes as indicated. I am sorry .i really did not get what exactly your question is.
Amol Malpani's picture

Dear Ramakrishna, As a part of previous version of skill test 2010 let me try to help you out. You can write detail information for topic afterwards when your team is selected in real competition in the form of blogs. For now, just prepare a proper summary in half page along with remaining three topics and send to organiser. Sorry for the interference in this section but I hope organiser will not mind it. Best of luck. Regards,
