The admission processes at Aakash may vary from one course to another course. Aakash offers Direct Admission option in all its courses and also offers admission on the basis of scholarship. The students can take admission either directly on the basis of percentage of Marks secured by them in their last school/ board exams or through the various scholarship tests offered, including the Admission Cum Scholarship Test (ACST), the Aakash National Talent Hunt Exam (ANTHE), National Eligibility & Scholarship Test (NEST) and more.
We provide scholarships for qualifying students from these tests to enroll in our programs. These tests allow students to assess their performance based on their ranking on the merit list, and many students that take these tests subsequently enroll in our courses. We offer admission to various Medical, Engineering, and Foundation courses through different programs like Classroom Program, Distance Learning Program (DLP) and Digital Learning Program.
