  • To get a firm offer of admission from Ashoka University, an applicant needs to have taken the SAT or ACT or Ashoka Aptitude Test (AAT) or have their final class XII board scores. Our DI Code for SAT applicants is – 7343. All applicants applying with SAT/ ACT scores need to send us their official transcripts.
  • Applicants without any one of the above scores are not eligible for a firm offer
  • For applicants whose final class XII board scores are not available at the time of evaluation, the SAT/ ACT or the Ashoka Aptitude Test may be used to make a firm offer of admission. This is especially helpful for the early action and first round of admissions where most applicants may not have their final board score
  • The higher score out of Ashoka Aptitude Test or ACT or SAT or board marks will be considered while taking a decision on an applicant’s candidature
  • No applicant will be rejected before receiving the final class XII board scores
