The Vice Chancellors of these universities at a meeting today decided that the admission tests will be held in three days, according to a statement issued by the uniform admission test authority.
The admission test for science students will take place on October 17, while candidates of B unit for humanities students will sit for the test on October 24 and aspirants of C unit for business students will sit for the exams on November 1.
More than 3.61 lakh aspirants are expected to sit for the admission tests.
