The Delhi University Joint Admission Test (DU JAT) is conducted every year in order to short-list students for admissions to undergraduate management programmes at University of Delhi’s affiliated institutes. It is a gateway for admissions to six colleges, offering Bachelor of Management Studies (BMS), and eight other colleges which offer B.A (Hons) Business Economics and BBA (FIA) programmes. This year, DU JAT is to be conducted on the 9th of July, on both offline and online modes.

With only a few days left for the exams, now would be a good time to check out unacademy.com. It is a non-profit website, which has a course developed by Darpan Jain, a student of Shaheed Sukhdev College of Business Studies, and provides a comprehensive guide to the exam. It includes an introduction, lessons on each individual section, and also familiarises users with the test pattern.

According to the founder, he started the online preparation course solely to help other aspirants and share his knowledge.  He adds, “The course also includes some important last minute tips and my personal recommendations which helped me to ace the exam and can help others too!”

The DU JAT will be conducted on the 9th of July from 12 pm to 2 pm, and results are to be announced in mid-July.
