With a view to help B Tech aspirants to secure early admissions in B Tech programmes of the NIIT University, the University announced the NU Scholar Search Programme where the students will be given admissions in the University’s B Tech programmes on the basis of their performance in X and XII standard examinations, including a student and parent interaction process with the University.
As far as the eligibility is concerned, the students appearing in class XII boards in March/April, 2012 and the students who have passed their class XII boards in either 2011 or 2010 may apply only if they have either of the following combinations of subjects: physics, chemistry and mathematics (PCM); physics, chemistry and biology (PCB) or physics, chemistry, mathematics and biology (PCMB) with a minimum score of 60%.
Moreover, students with an aggregate of 80% and above in Class X can apply under early admission (EAD) mode. Those who with an aggregate of 70% or above in Xth standard can apply under early application (EAP) mode. Students who secure more than 70% in +2 need not appear for an entrance examination. However, students who have secured less than 70% in class XII need to submit their IIT/JEE, AIEEE or SAT rank/scores or appear for the NU entrance test ( NUET).
Not only this, on the basis of their X and XII results, students can also avail various levels of scholarship that goes upto 100% and that too with a monthly assistantship.
P Rajendran, co-founder, NIIT University and chief operating officer, NIIT Limited, says, “NU initiates a student-centric admission process that relieves meritorious school students of this strain by facilitating their induction into BTech programmes on the basis of their performance in school.”
