Four JIBS Students qualify prestigious FACT

Four students from the graduating batch of M.A./M.Sc. in Applied Psychology (Forensic and Investigative Psychology) at JIBS have successfully qualified in the prestigious Forensic Aptitude and Caliber Test (FACT) in Forensic Psychology. These students are Pritika Kedia, Ishita Gupta, Surabhi Deb and Abhigna Reddy. These students are among the top 80 qualifiers in the All-India FACT Examination.

FACT is a highly esteemed national-level examination designed to assess the comprehensive aptitude and skills of postgraduate students across various subjects of forensic science. This examination serves as a critical screening test certifying a minimum level of understanding and relative knowledge in the field. Qualification from the FACT is often a key criterion for recruitment by Forensic Science Laboratories (FSLs) and other relevant agencies.
