The campus is great, with a good crowd.

Placements: Less than 5% of our batchmates got placed through our college, and the rest of them are still looking for a job.

If you want more placements, I suggest opting for other colleges.

What eligibility criteria it follows. If the eligibility says subject to qualifying LPU NEST then you have to clear the entrance exam. In addition to qualifying it also provides you a good amount of scholarship if you score well. In case the eligibility of the programme says Pass or only states some percentage criteria, only then LPU NEST will not be a mandatory to qualify. Still in this case, a candidate has an option to appear for LPU NEST just for the sake of scholarship purposes. As LPU NEST is short for Lovely Professional University National Entrance and Scholarship test. In my opinion a candidate should appear for this exam even if it is not mandatory, the reason behind that is, there is a chance that you can avail a good scholarship. Hope I have answered your query. Good Luck!
