Ashoka Aptitude Assessment Eligibility Criteria


The candidates can secure admission in Ashoka University UG programs if they have appeared for SAT or ACT or Ashoka Aptitude Assessment (AAA) or have their final Class XII board/equivalent examination scores. All applicants applying with SAT/ ACT scores need to mention their scores while filling the AAA application form.


For applicants whose final Class XII board examination scores are not available at the time of evaluation, the SAT/ACT or the Ashoka Aptitude Assessment (AAA) may be used to make a firm offer of admission. This is especially helpful for the first round of admissions where most applicants may not have their final board examination scores. No applicant will be rejected before receiving the final Class XII board scores.
