    Re: Why is DRDO's SET(Scientist Entrance Test) not being conducted from 2 years?

    Dear Aspirant,

    For your information I would like to tell you that, the DRDO is NOT conducting Scientist Entry Test (SET) in the year-2011.

    As per the tentative information DRDO will be conducting the same may be next year. You will have to wait till their notification released.

    Since this time there is no SET exam being conducted, few posts’ vacancies will be filled only on the basis of the candidates’ past experience / expertise in the related subject of a candidate.
