NU offers Early Admission to students who have scored ≥60% in class X exams into its prestigious B Tech and B Tech-M Tech Integrated Dual Degree programmes for the batch 2014 under an Early Admission Mode (EAD).
This is offered to applicants who are appearing for their Class XII Board Examinations in March-April 2014 as also to those who have taken their Class XII Board examination not earlier than March-April 2012.
Early Admission ensures that the student can be stress free and can focus on doing well in their Class XII Board examinations.
Students who have scored ≥80% marks in class X exams are only eligible for scholarships under the NU Scholar Search Programme.
Students who have scored between ≥60% and <80% in class X have a chance to earn a scholarship based on their marks in Class XII or their rank / score in an entrance examination as specified in the NU Scholar Search Programme policy.
NU supports the Early Admission candidates for their Class XII exams through the Study Smart initiative.
Early Admission students also get access to “Head Start program” at NU, which enables them to get an early start into the B Tech programme.
There are limited seats for which admission is being granted under the Early Admission Mode. The admission will be granted on a first come first served basis to only those applicants who meet all the admission criteria.
The last date to submit application under EAD is January 31, 2014.
