The reopening of classes brings good news for students who had taken admission to the premier institute. This move will help them avoid any more loss of study time. The students of the incoming batch will be welcomed in a Fresher's Welcome Function, which will also be conducted online on 8 August 2020.

Dear Student,

Panjab University Management Entrance Test (PU MET) 2021 has been postponed by the university. As per the revised PU MET schedule available on the official website, the applications form for the test can now be submitted till June 5 and the test itself will be conducted on June 19, 2021. It appears that the Panjab University has provided sufficient buffer time for the test to be conducted keeping the current situation in mind. However, depending on how things proceed, keep an open mind for the exam being postponed further. 

Thank you.
