B.Optom Programme:

The B.Optom. Programme offered by SASTRA Deemed University in collaboration with the Elite School of Optometry, Sankara Nethralaya, Unit of Medical Research Foundation is a four year programme designed to create professionally trained optometrists for the healthcare sector. The student will spend the first two years at SASTRA Deemed University and the next two years at the Medical Research Foundation, Sankara Nethralaya. Emphasis on clinical training and internships along with strong foundation in basic and applied optometric courses are the hallmarks of this programme. This is in addition to two practice schools during the programme at the Medical Research Foundation. SASTRA being among the top universities in India and known for its innovation and excellence in education that is well connected with society at large, have naturally appreciated the need for quality optometrists for India. Elite School of Optometry – Sankara Nethralaya, the first school of optometry in India started in the year 1985, has been the dream destination for Optometry across the country. With 100% employment for all the graduates, students also have options to pursue higher studies or embark on entrepreneurial ventures. About 40% of the undergraduates pursue higher studies in India or abroad and around 15% of the graduates opted for doctoral studies. The integration of the infrastructural and intellectual strengths of these two institutions will contribute to the pool of skilled optometrists and vision scientists to the healthcare sector.

Admission Procedure:

Admission to the B.Optom. programme will be based on NEET scores and normalized +2 marks. The weightage for NEET scores and +2 marks will be 25% & 75% respectively. The aggregate NEET score and normalized +2 aggregate will be taken together as per the weightage and applicants will be ranked based on the resultant combined score.
For example: If a student secures a NEET Score of 185 and a normalized +2 aggregate of 95%ile, the combined score of the student will be (0.25*185) + (0.75*95) = 117.5.
The combined score of a student will be used to determine the SASTRA Rank and admission will be based on the SASTRA Rank secured. To bring all candidates from different examining authorities/boards in the same scale of comparison and to create a list in the order of merit, the +2 or its equivalent aggregate marks will be normalized. A first rank student of each board is considered to have obtained 100% mark and aggregate mark of all other students of the board is normalized with reference to that of the first rank student. For example, if the first rank is 97% and an applicant’s aggregate is 90% then the applicant’s normalized percentage is 92.78 (90 / 97 x 100). If a student did not appear for NEET, he/she will be eligible with 75% weightage on +2 aggregate alone.

Applicants will be called for counseling based on the combined score.
