  • I did make a search for the required information sought by the author but could not find it. I would advise the editor to shift this post to ask experts so that right information from other members can be had.

  • Hello Mohan,
    I searched this forum and got previous year question papers (for May 2010 and May 2012). Annamalai University provide study materials either online (soft copy) or hard copy. So thought of asking if some have access to soft copy of the syllabus and study materials. Any way next month I will get it. But I am curious to see it before. But it will be helpful to have some more question papers.

  • This thread is shifted to AE section.


  • The old question papers are available in the site of the university, from the year 2012. You can download I am giving the address of the site where from you can download the papers.

  • Deaf Mr Natarajan,
    Thank you for proving me the information. I tried my level best to download question papers from those sites. But those links are not working. Annamalai University (AU) website is not working at all! Please check. There are two PG Diploma courses in intellectual property in AU. One is P.G. Diploma in Intellectual Property Rights and Patent Laws (code: 494) and the other is P.G. Diploma in Intellectual Property Rights (code 288). I am interested in the second one, code 288. This second course (code 288) has only three papers and one practicals:
    1. Introduction to Intellectual Property Rights, Laws and Acts,
    2. Patents, Designs, Copyrights and Trademarks,
    3. Plant Varieties Protection, Biodiversity and Geographical Indications.
    4. Practical.
    Unfortunately you have given details of the first course and syllabus for IGNOU, but I am looking for AU.
    I have question papers for May 2010, Dec 2010, May 2012. If you are able to download please download for 288 and send to my email address. Or AU website works only in India???

  • So far as the syllabus of PG Diploma in Intellectual Property Rights is concerned, itt is not available in the net. You will find it in the prospectus. I would advise you to get the old prospectus checked from any study centre of Annamalai University. If you can convince them, they will allow you to get the syllabus photocopied. I know from my personal experience (two of my Masters degrees are from this University) that every Regional Centre/Study Centre of Annamalai University has one attached library where old prospectus and question papers are kept.

    Just now I have checked the question papers from . The question papers can be downloaded. If downloading is still not possible by you, get the hard-copies photocopied from the nearest Regional Centre/Study Centre as mentioned above.

    Come on, have a fight. Don't shoot and scoot.

  • Hello All,
