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

Schedule I: 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:  From April 2022, the counselling 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.
