Panjab University Scraps Entrance Test for UG Admissions

Panjab University (PU), Chandigarh will not conduct the entrance tests for admission to its undergraduate courses. Panjab University 2020 admissions will not be conducted based on the merit of candidates in the Class 12 board examinations.

The decision to scrap the Panjab University 2020 Entrance Tests was taken as per the recommendation of a committee up by the university. The decision was taken by the committee because the admissions have already been delayed and the university decided to opt for an alternate process for admissions instead of delaying admissions further by conducting the entrance exams.
