According to UPES, this has been enabled for the first time by a university in India to help aspirants and distance-learning students to take entrance tests and semester exams from any location.

Under this engagement, around 300 candidates have taken the UPESMET-2, an online MBA entrance test for admission to 10 MBA programmes in the specialised sectors of oil and gas, power, energy, infrastructure, aviation, port and shipping, international business and others. The next entrance test will be held from May 2 to May 4, 2014. The last date to apply is April 30, 2014.
