BA (Hons.) Music, is a new addition to the list which only had 8 courses previously.
The open session:
The university will also conduct a counselling session (also known as Open Session) to answer all the admission and course related queries of students.
Time and days:
The counselling session is held in North and South campus and helps students pick and shortlist colleges and courses according to their inclination and merit. The session is likely to start before the announcement of board results and continue till after it to make the process easy for students. The counselling session will take place throughout the week from 10am to 1pm, except for Sundays.
The session will take place in University's Conference Centre in Chhatra Marg but various colleges are also expected to organize individual counselling sessions to remove confusions of students and parents. In the past, colleges like Lady Shri Ram College for Women, Miranda House, Sri Guru Tegh Bahadur Khalsa College and Sri Venkateswara College had done the same.
Usually there is a presentation by university authorities which is followed by a question-answer round where aspiring candidates and their parents whatever doubt they have.
The entrance tests will be held across 18 centres throughout the country, which is more than last year.
