Dear student,

Lovely Professional University is not conducting LPUNEST for admission to BBA this year. The university has taken this step due to the outbreak of the novel coronavirus because of which there was a nationwide lockdown. Hence, LPU decided to shortlist students for BBA for the academic cycle of 2020 - 2021 on the basis of their marks in class 12th.

If you have applied for BBA admissions at LPU for 2020-21, the university will select you after considering your aggregate marks in the qualifying degree, i.e. class 12th board exams. You must have scored at least 50% marks ...
