JNU Engineering Entrance Exam Syllabus

JNU Engineering Entrance Exam (JNU EEE)

The Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) is one of the premier institutes in India providing higher education. JNU conducts entrance exam called JNU Engineering Entrance Exam for admission to Engineering courses. Or Every year, lakhs of students take the JNU Entrance Exam in various nooks and corners of the country and seeks to become a part of the JNU community. The JNU Entrance exam is also unique in the sense that apart from providing reservation to the backward sections of the society, it allots deprivation points to the girl candidates and to candidates coming from the least developed states.
