Pearson VUE, the global leader in computer-based testing, has announced today an extended registration window for the Pearson Undergraduate Entrance Exam.
Candidates now have an additional two months to register for and schedule their exam, with the current booking window extended from June 30th, 2021 to August 31st, 2021.
With 12th grade exams delayed or cancelled due to the ongoing pandemic, many universities in India have extended their admissions cycles, to ensure students have enough time to choose their preferred course and university. Divyalok Chetan Sharma, Vice President, India and SAARC at Pearson VUE, explains: “Students’ education has been significantly disrupted this year, and so many universities took the decision to extend their admissions deadlines for various undergraduate courses. We have therefore extended our registration window to August 31st, 2021 in line with this, and to support candidates in their academic endeavours during this challenging period.’’
More than 70 universities are now accepting the Pearson Undergraduate Entrance Exam scores as a criterion to provide admissions to students. Availability is currently varied and limited at Pearson VUE test centers due to government regulations. Candidates must acknowledge that they meet certain health requirements and that they will follow health and safety guidelines while testing. Alternatively, they will be able to take their exam from home – via Pearson VUE’s online proctoring solution, OnVUE.
In addition to the flexibility of being able to reschedule their tests at their convenience, candidates can also retake their exam in case they are not satisfied with their initial scores.
