Delhi University has come up with the schedule for Post-Graduation admission for this year which began from 28 April and will conclude on 24 May 2016. Applications for undergraduate courses in the university have not yet started and the university has come up with new policy from this year onwards. The university has abolished subjective questions this year from the entrance examination and instead focused on objective questions.
The entrance examination for the various post graduate courses offered under the Delhi University will take place at six different examination centres across the country. This will be the first time when the entrance examination for Delhi University Post Graduation courses will be held outside Delhi. Students in Bengaluru, Nagpur, Delhi, Jammu, Varanasi and Kolkata will be able to sit for the entrance tests through the examination centres. The significant change in the admission policy is result of the recommendation of 18 member standing committee which was formed comprising of deans of various faculties of the university. The registration fee for the PG courses is set to be Rs. 500/- for general and OBC category students while the SC/ST candidates have to pay Rs. 250/- as application fee.
In a statement issued by the university it said, “All exams will be conducted in MCQ format, except in case of some foreign languages, including Persian, in which subjective questions will be asked. All exams are likely to be held between June 19 and 23.” Apart from interdisciplinary or professional courses, all the other departments would have the power to reserve 50 percent seats for direct admission for the undergraduate students who studied in Delhi University. The remaining seats would get filled through the performance of candidates in the entrance exams followed by interview.
The candidates applying for the centralized registration process of postgraduate courses under the university should have a bachelor’s degree in relevant subject for which they are applying. They should also have the minimum percentage marks required to apply for the programme. In the 2016-17 academic session, over 8000 students are expected to get enrolled.
