Lovely Professional University (LPU) has signed a multi-year agreement with global computer-based testing leader Pearson VUE to deliver its popular Lovely Professional University National Entrance and Scholarship Test (LPUNEST).
According to the agreement, Pearson VUE will deliver LPUNEST for multiple programmes, not just in India but via its network of more than 5,000 test centres in 180 countries around the world. Students applying for a place at the university can schedule their admissions exam at a local test centre across more than 130 cities in India via an online booking system from March 1, 2017.
Candidates will also have the flexibility of registering and scheduling – choosing a slot at their preferred date, time and location in a seamless way. Exam security is a high priority for university admissions and Pearson VUE will be capturing candidate biometrics including digital photographs and digital signatures to reduce cases of fraud.
Divyalok Sharma, senior director – client development at Pearson VUE, said: “We were chosen by Lovely Professional University in part due to our adherence to global best practices in assessment standards. Our new partnership with the university is good news for aspiring candidates across India and abroad. We intend to provide the highest quality of services and a glitch-free test delivery for LPU.”
“We selected Pearson VUE to deliver our exams so that we can provide the biggest test centre reach possible for our candidates in India and around the world. The Pearson VUE brand adds value to our entrance examinations because of the high standards of quality, exam security, and customer service associated with it,” stated Ashok Mittal, chancellor of Lovely Professional University.
