Entrance Examination System of Pokhara University and Affiliated Colleges
Actually, the entrance system in Pokhara University affiliated colleges of engineering is different from the colleges of other university-affiliated and constituent colleges of engineering. The fact is that the students wishing to study BE in Pokhara University affiliated with full-fee must attend and pass the entrance examination conducted by the particular college (not PU).
Although the Pokhara University affiliated colleges are dependent on Pokhara University, the university recommends the affiliated colleges to take entrance examinations independently in their own colleges. This system makes it easier for the students applying to PU-affiliated colleges. The students no need to go to Pokhara for full-fee entrance. The registration and entrance for full-fee can be applied from affiliated colleges. A certain amount of discount on the fee can be achieved by the student on the basis of their +2 marks/grades and ranks of the entrance.
But, for the scholarship and quota, Pokhara University (not affiliated colleges) takes the entrance examination of the deserving Nepalese candidates themselves. For this, the students must go to the central campus at Pokhara to attend the scholarship entrance. The university then allocates the seats for those scholarships getting students in its different constituent, joint-constituent, and affiliated colleges across the country. Based on the rank and quota, the student can achieve a full-discount on the fee.
