The entrance examination phase for the Delhi University has begun and admission tests in undergraduate, postgraduate, MPhil and PhD courses have begun through the examination centres. Till 23 July the entrance tests for various courses will continue and the results will be out on 4 July 2016.
For Bachelor of Management Studies, Bachelor of Business Administration and BA (Honors) Business Economics, the Delhi University has conducted a Joint Admission Test on 20 June 2016. In the three courses, there are a total of 991 seats available. The seats will be filled based on the performance of candidates in the entrance test followed by group discussion and personal interview conducted by the concerned recruitment authority. The entrance tests will be conducted between 4 to 6 pm at different dates.
The Delhi University administration has decided to conduct the entrance examination first time in its history in five different centres outside Delhi. This will help outstation candidates to take up the entrance examination from their own states and still apply for the courses at the university. The entrance tests are being conducted at Kolkata, Chennai, Jammu, Nagpur and Varanasi along with Delhi. Over 2, 14,000 candidates have applied for the various programmes under the university.
The patterns of the entrance examination for postgraduate courses have also changed this year. While it was a mix of subjective and objective questions previously, this year onwards it would only carry objective multiple choice questions. According to officials, this move will make the entire admission process transparent and make life easier for students.
One of the aspiring candidates, who had appeared for the MA Sociology paper held on Sunday said, “The paper was tricky. Even though it was objective, the questions were not direct unlike the other entrance tests I have appeared for. Here we had to use a lot of reasoning to answer the questions.”
