    1. I think that is not possible because for Specific Area Aptitude Test one should select one out of six courses. And you are not allowed to submit multiple applications too. But, I will recommend you to go through the prospectus for confirmation.

    1. Interactive Orientation Course makes new students aware about film making and other stuffs. It gives you chance to interact with faculties and get glimpses of college equipments and facilities before Interview. You can clear your doubts with expert faculties through it. Do share your experiences with us after IOC and interview and congrats for your success.
