  1. It's an old pattern, now they only have one paper of 100 marks in 2016.
    Mental Ability= 20marks
    Creative Aptitude= 40marks
    Specific Area Test= 40marks

    1. The above post has now been updated and it is based on the latest SRFTI Exam Pattern. Thanks Ravi for your valuable feedback.

  2. Can i give entrance exam for direction and screenplay writting and cinematography both?

    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.

  3. can they allow my IGNOU Bachelors degree for their eligibility criteria?

    1. Yes, IGNOU Certificates are valid as it is a recognised Institution

  4. seem's like they changed the pattern no G.K ?

  8. Do anyone know about the pattern of Interactive Orientation Course and Interview at SRFTI?
    i have been shortlisted after the written exam.
