LUCKNOW: For most of the top rankers in the entrance exam for Lucknow University’s undergraduate courses, the university was not the first preference.
BCom entrance test topper Monika Tandon said after scoring 96.6% in class XII, from Rani Laxmi Bai Memorial School, she aspired to pursue BCom (Hons) from Delhi University.
“I may consider LU if I don’t get admission to DU. My aim is to be a chartered accountant for which, I will prepare along with my bachelors studies,” said Monika, who is also waiting for the result of National PG College.
Given a choice between LU and NPGC, Monika said she would prefer the latter as, “Unlike LU, the commerce faculty at National college is reputed and classes are held regularly.” She also said that LU lacked reputation in the competitive arena.
LLB topper Anupriya Tripathi, who has applied for admissions to national law universities too, said, “I didn’t make it to the first list for a law university of my preference but the second and third lists are awaited.”
She also wrote entrance tests for Banaras Hindu University, results for it are awaited too.
“I am looking forward to studying in a national law university and if I don’t get admission, I will consider LU,” said Anupriya who passed class XII from Kendriya Vidyalaya, RDSO branch and scored 83.6% in science subjects.
Ananya Shukla, who ranked first in BSc mathematics entrance test dreams to be an engineer. She is waiting for JEE (advanced) results to be declared on Sunday.

Despite scoring 349 out of 400 and topping the BSc Biology entrance test at LU, Anurupa Roy’s first preference is to get into a top medical college for her MBBS. She aspires to be a cardiologist.
“I am waiting for my NEET exam results and may consider BSc from LU if I don’t make a cut in NEET. By enrolling in LU, I will, at least not waste a year,” she said Anurupa. A passout of St Mary’s Inter College, her score in class XII was 91.5%.
