All the admission procedures of the degree programmes (UG and PG) of O.P. Jindal Global University will be conducted online under the aegis of the Jindal Scholastic Aptitude Test (JSAT) administered by Pearson VUE. The exception to this are the five-year law programme of the Jindal Global Law School (JGLS) and the five-year architecture programme at the Jindal School of Art & Architecture (JSAA).
Candidates from India and around the world can now take the JSAT exam at their convenience from home starting May 11. It is the first time in more than 25 years of existence of Pearson’s Virtual University Enterprises (VUE) that an Artificial Intelligence-enabled, home-proctored online solution has been made available in this format. Prospective students seeking admission to JGU can take the exam at their own convenience from the safety of their homes to complete the admissions process to their chosen programmes in an efficient and timely manner.
“As an Institution of Eminence, it is our endeavour at O.P. Jindal Global University to offer the best of educational opportunities to our valued students,” said Professor (Dr.) C. Raj Kumar, Founding Vice Chancellor of O.P. Jindal Global University (JGU). “This is a technologically advanced admission solution, which allows students a seamless new system to complete the admissions process into the various courses of their choice. At the core of JGU’s vision and mission is our aspiration to be a role model for excellence in higher education in India and be among the leading universities of the world. We aim to promote a global perspective and provide an enriching, intellectually engaging and discovery-based learning environment to our students,” he added.
Like centre-based testing, AI-enabled testing solution requires candidates to complete a virtual self-check-in process, which includes enhanced identification, authentication and, after successful validation, the candidate will be approved to take the test. Candidates will be monitored live through their device’s webcam with the assistance of Artificial Intelligence (AI) tools.
Candidates will still need to schedule their online exam ahead of time, but appointments are offered 24×7 so that candidates can find a time convenient for their schedule. The registration process remains the same – candidate must first select online JSAT along with their preferred date and time to take the test. After successful completion of the registration process, they will receive an automated confirmation email of the appointment within 24 hours.Posted in Campus, News
