Delhi University Masters and research programs to have online entrance from this year

Delhi University has decided to conduct online entrance test for Masters and Research programmes like M.Phil and PhD. Several of its undergraduate courses for which entrance was conducted across different cities of the country will also be going online from the commencing academic year. This will delay the regular entrance schedule normally followed by the university by nearly a month. The registration for entrances which earlier started in the first part of April will now start in May.  “There is a delay in the application process, but admissions will be conducted on time as online tests can be completed in three to four days. The application process can be announced in the first week of May,” said a senior official at the examination branch.

The entrance test for Master’s , research programmes and selected UG programmes like BEd, Law, B.A(Hons.), Business Economics, Bachelor of Business Studies and Bachelor of Financial and Investment Analysis will be held in nearly 18 centres across the country. For every 10,000 applicants there will be one facilitation centre. As per the plans the online tests will consist of multiple choice questions, with a duration of two hours. Every day the tests will be conducted in three shifts between 8AM and 6PM.

The responsibility for conducting this entrance test will be outsourced to a third party, which will facilitate the process in cities across India for which the university has already floated a tender this Wednesday. The organisation which bags the tender will also have to create facilitation centres to familiarise the candidates with the computer-based tests, which are expected to function from at least one month in advance.

Earlier this month, Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad (ABVP) and Delhi University Student’s Union (DUSU) protested against the online based entrance system.
