As the new session inches closer and the admission procedure is about to begin, University of Delhi has introduced a few changes in the admission procedure for Post Graduate courses. The University will be opening five new admission centres outside Delhi for the convenience of outstation candidates. These centres will be conducting entrance exams and will be set up in Jammu, Ahmedabad, Varanasi, Kolkata, and Nagpur.
The Admission process, along with submission of fees will also be conducted online, on the suggestion of an 18 member committee that formulates rules for Post Graduate admissions. The suggestions will be sent to the Vice Chancellor for approval.
DU has reserved 50% of the seats for direct admissions when the aspirants have graduated from DU. The remaining 50% seats will be filled through entrance tests and interviews.
The University will also be giving a cutoff relaxation to OBC aspirants. The cutoff will be upto 10% lower than the cutoff for students from the General category. It is also likely that the subjective entrance tests will be replaced by objective tests. The committee is thinking about replacing the subjective tests with multiple choice questions. This is to ensure transparency in the evaluation of these tests.
The admission process is expected to begin towards the end of April and the registrations will be winded up by mid May. The Entrance tests will be held in the beginning of June.
