So you want to stay in India for undergraduate, before heading abroad for further studies - and you didn’t get into college. It’s June, are there options out there for you now?

Yes, there are.

Two of India’s newest and noteworthy players on the higher education scene have rolling admissions, and will review applications until the end of July.

Jindal School of Liberal Arts & Humanities

Not all universities have a hard admissions cutoff policy.  For example, Jindal School of Liberal Arts and Humanities (JSLH) and Jindal Global Business School (JGBS) both follow an “Open until Filled” policy for undergraduate admissions.  What that means for applicants is that these schools will consider admissions applications as late as end of July, assuming there are seats to be filled.  Both schools consider far more than test scores in selecting applicants. 

 If an otherwise qualified student did not gain admission to their first choice school, they may still be eligible for matriculating in one of the Jindal Global University’s excellent academic programs. 
Jindal Global is on the forefront of global education.  Rather than follow the herd, why not blaze some new trails?  For admissions information see the Jindal website.

Do you think your academic score encapsulates you?
Aren't most Indian universities making admissions decisions based on a mere fraction of your abilities, rather than evaluating you for all that you might have achieved and learnt given the opportunities you have had, and your potential to reach great heights provided you have the right guidance and resources to help you on your way?

The finest institutions of the world look at your achievements beyond what your school syllabus tests you on. They value the time you have spent in extra-curricular activities - sports, volunteering, internships, community work or creative projects - and are eager to know how they have shaped you as a person, and what you have learnt from your many engagements.
With one more round of admissions to go, our undergraduate class already boasts talented students whose achievements transcend academics. From debaters and artists, to technology innovators, writers, musicians and national-level sportspeople, the peer group is diverse and challenging.
Ashoka’s rolling admissions process closes on August 1, 2014. For more information see the Ashoka University website.
