Common entrance test for private universities
In its endeavour to provide students with a transparent and fair admission process, Educational Promotion Society for India (EPSI) will conduct EPSI National Admission Test (ENAT) across various disciplines for courses of different universities. It is an online combined national admission test designed to be a single window examination for admission to several post graduate and undergraduate programmes including engineering, management and medicine in a clear manner.

This is aimed to help students choose a suitable and convenient date/place across India, thereby relieving them from the need for buying separate application forms of different institutions and the necessity for appearing in different tests with conflicting dates, times and venues.

Some of the universities which will use the score of ENAT include Manipal University, Mangalore, Sharda University, Greater Noida, Bhagwant University, Ajmer, St. Peter’s University, Chennai, Shridhar University, Pilani and Manav Rachna International University, Faridabad. There would be different exams for different programmes. Examination would take place between June 10-15. Visit www.epsfi.org/ENAT/ exam.htm for further details. Last date to apply is May 24.
