Amity University in entrance exam partnership with Pearson VUE

NEW DELHI, INDIA, Nov. 13, 2017 – Amity University has entered into a multi-year agreement with Pearson VUE, the global leader in computer-based testing (CBT), to deliver its entrance exams in India.

Candidates can now register for the Amity Joint Entrance Exam (AMITY-JEE) and schedule it online. Instead of travelling to a city centre exam hall on one particular day, candidates can sit the test at a local, highly secure Pearson VUE test centre on a day and time of their choosing.

Divyalok Sharma, senior director of client development at Pearson VUE, said: “Our new agreement with Amity University will give talented students across India the opportunity to gain a cherished place at a highly respected educational establishment. It also means more convenience and flexibility along with prompt delivery of exam results. Computer-based testing is a form of assessment well suited to a new generation of tech-savvy students across India.”

Pearson VUE was selected to deliver the exam so that Amity University could utilise the infrastructure it offers as the world leader in computer-based testing, resulting in fair and reliable exam delivery for candidates.
