It was amazing to experience yoga practices for all participants at UPES. A large number of enthusiastic participants were seen practicing yoga exercises on the International Day of Yoga on 21st June, 2016 at its Campus in Bidholi. The aim was to generate awareness among students, faculty and staff about the benefits of Yoga.
On the occasion, Dr. Rakesh Kapoor from Brahmakumari Vishwavidyalaya enlightened the audience about the benefits of Yoga in all spheres of life – Physical/Mental/Spiritual Health. It was followed by Meditation practice demonstrated by Mr S Vohrs Sarthak, Principal of Cambridge Sr. Secondary School. Surya Namaskar and Pranayam was also demonstrated by the Team CSR.
The UPES Centralized counselling for the admissions through UPES Engineering Aptitude Test (UPESEAT) 2016 will begin from 21st June to 30th June 2016 in Delhi. The names of candidates enlisted in the UPESEAT 2016 Merit list will be invited for counselling to attend the counselling session in person. The seat allocation to the different engineering degree courses of the University will be done during the counselling session itself.
The 80% of the available seats are alloted through the UPES Engineering Aptitude Test (UPESEAT). On the counselling day, all the essential documents and records are checked for verification. The candidates are accompanied with their parents to finally decide for their specialization. It’s quite exciting to become part of this entire process. If you have got an invite for this session, do not miss the chance to become a part of it and be there at the allotted time. As the process is quite transparent; and missing the allotted slot would result in missing the seat in the chosen course. So be there on the time and All the best!
