LPUNEST 2019 Important Dates


Lovely Professional University has announced the dates and process for the admission to its coveted B.Tech programs. Like last year this year again admission to LPU’s BTech Program will happen through university’s entrance test NEST (National Entrance & Scholarship Test). This year university has introduced a new system though. Instead of conducting the exam once in the month of April now the students would be able to appear for the exams in two phases, one in January and other in April. This is the same pattern as that of the newly introduced JEE pattern by the CBSE.

LPU NEST test is not only the admission test for the university but also the scholarship test. Based on the performance of the test students can also get scholarship upto Rs 7.5 lakhs.

Applicants appearing for LPUNEST (B.Tech.) should have either completed or shall be appearing in 2019, in final examination of 10+2 from a recognised board. To take admission to LPU engineering program student should also acquire 60% and above in their +2 examinations with the subject combination of Physics, Chemistry, English and Biology/Mathematics/Biotechnology.

The question pattern followed in the LPUNEST is 30 questions on Physics, Chemistry and Maths/Biology and 20 questions on English.
