Hi Vikas,

Yes ,you are can apply at PU entrance test for B.A LLB course as NIOS is equivalent to other state/central boards which conduct class 12th Boards exam.

Whether you are eligible or not depends upon you have 50% minimum marks for (General/OBC) 45% for SC/ST   in 12 or not.If you have that score then you are eligible to give entrance exam.

I would suggest you to give CLAT exam also which is national level exam after securing rank in that exam you will get admission in National Law academy .

Hope this will help,please feel free to ask if you have any further queries.

Thank you.
