“Early Decision Benefit Phase” is divided into two schedules.

Schedule I: 9th January 2020 is the last date to apply and the exam will take place from 10th January 2020- 25th January 2020. There is an advantage for the students in this schedule that if they are not satisfied in their 1st attempt, they can go for the 2nd attempt. The best among the two will be taken into consideration for preparing the merit list. For the second chance, candidates have to fill the prescribed form but they will not be charged.

Schedule II: 31st March 2020 is the last date to apply and the exam will take place from 10th April – 25th April 2020. In this schedule, there is no second chance. From 30th April 2020, the counseling and seat allotment will begin. Before this, the cut off will be released. Thus tell the students whether they have clear the LPU NEST phase I. Tentatively, the admission procedure as per Phase 1 will be over in May 2020. Thus those who will appear in phase I must get the admission on time. No further process will take place as the Phase II Procedure will start.

Phase II

There are two brackets of scholarship in this phase. Candidates who will clear the LPU NEST 2020 will get a higher scholarship than the students who will not appear. The top 30% of students who will clear the exam in Phase II will be given some financial aid. To claim that financial aid, candidates have to take the admission on time i.e as prescribed by the University for Phase II.

Phase III
