Due to the postponement of exams for class 12th students by national and state boards, the admissions process for undergraduate programs has also been extended. Only after a finalised plan for the annual board examinations is announced, the university will release the complete process of entrance tests and admissions.

In addition to this, the varsity's administration has also cancelled the B.Ed entrance exams, slated to be held on May 19. The new date for this assessment is awaited, which will be declared once the situation comes under control.
