Jagran Lakecity University (JLU), one of the most awarded universities of central India has commenced applications for the first phase of its Entrance Test (JLUET) on 22nd May 2021. The decision has been made keeping in mind ongoing delay in upcoming 12th Board Exam results. To ensure continuity in the transition to higher education, the university has reworked the admission process in order to alleviate student uncertainty while considering university admissions. JLUET is the centralized admissions cum scholarship test for aspiring students and is a part of the assessment process for all the courses available at the university.
Last date to register for the online exam is 17th May 2021. The university will conduct other rounds of JLUET for which the tentative dates are 26th June, 24th July and14th August 2021 respectively.
The three-hour-long JLUET, will be conducted virtually and is a gateway to multiple U.G. courses within the university across the fields of Journalism, Design, Law, Management & Commerce, UI/UX, BBA, B.A. Economics, B.COM, B.TECH, Hospitality, Entertainment & Events, Public Policy, Psychology, English Literature, among others. JLUET is specifically designed to test students on aptitude and knowledge in order to identify exceptional students who may secure a seat at the university prior to appearing for the 12th boards. The test includes an MCQ-based aptitude test, covering three sections i.e. Logical Reasoning, General Awareness, and Subject Knowledge. It also consists of a personal Interview with the admission panel.
The university has also redesigned its scholarship program to include JLUET scores, apart from the other National level entrance test scores. The top 12.8% of students will be eligible to get up to 100% scholarships on tuition fees from a total scholarship corpus of Rs. 2.5 Cr, as announced by the university.
Dr. Sandeep Shastri, Vice-Chancellor, Jagran Lakecity University, said that “Success comes to those who start early and work tirelessly to achieve their goals. Quick and well thought off decision-making is one of the most important attributes of any successful individual, and with our JLUET initiative, we are giving an edge to the quick thinkers, and trail blazers of the future. We believe that the uncertainty of the board exams does not mean that students’ future should be uncertain too. Therefore, we are being proactive by conducting our own entrance test to assess the students and get them admitted for the course of their choice.”
