How to use the OTBS
To book the slot the candidates need to provide the application number and the password that they have received during online registration. After logging in, the candidates will have to follow the instructions and select the test city and the date of examination they are comfortable with. On successful booking, the candidates will get a confirmation mail on their registered email id.
The university has a unique feature of providing more than one attempts to the candidates who are not satisfied with their performances in the Online Entrance Test (OET). For B.Pharm, PharmD and B.Tech courses, there will be 3 attempts. However, for rest of the courses, only 2 attempts are provided. Candidates will have to seperately book slot for each attempt by paying the entrance test fee of Rs. 1400, each time.
The slot booking schedule for different programmes is different as their OET are to be conducted on different days. The candidates who will not book the slot as per the dates, their slots will be automatically assigned.
In any case, the situation of non-availability of slots is faced, the candidates need to choose an alternate slot. This situation arises because the slot has been filled and no more intakes are available. Thus, it is advisable to book the slots in the early stages of the process.
