Increase in seats


The University of Delhi has announced a revised policy for this year’s undergraduate entrance-based admissions. The courses administered under the Faculty of Applied Social Sciences and Humanities, including Bachelor of Management Studies (BMS), Bachelor of Business Administration (Foreign Investment Analysis) and B.A. (Hons.) in Business Economics, are increasing the number of seats from last year’s 884 to 1,162.

These management courses undertake students by conducting a Joint Admissions Test (JAT). The second-level of the process involves a Group Discussion and Personal Interview, based on which a merit list announced the ranks of the candidates. The entrance test was given a weightage of 85%, while the latter held a weightage of 15%. This year, however, the varsity has decided to do away with the process of GD-PI.  The admission process will be done on the basis of an entrance test and the candidate’s 12th Board marks, assigning 65% weightage to the former and 35% to the merit score.

The registration for the entrance based exams was scheduled to commence from May 31st this year. However, due to the policy changes, the portal became operational on June 16th, and will accept applications until June 25th. The entrance test is anticipated to be scheduled in the first week of July.

The two-hour long entrance test will be an objective-type, multiple-choice question paper. It is designed to test the aptitude of the candidate in the following areas: Quantitative Ability, Reasoning and Analytical Ability, General English, Business and General Awareness. A correct answer will allow the candidate to receive 4 marks, an incorrect answer will lead to a loss of one mark, and zero marks will be awarded to a question not attempted. The eligibility for the course is a minimum of 60% in Board in four papers including English, Mathematics and other two elective subjects, as per List A.

The three courses are offered by a variety of colleges in the varsity. They include:

BMS: Aryabhatta College, College of Vocational Studies, Deen Dayal Upadhyay College, Keshav Mahavidyalay, Ramanujan College, Ram Lal Anand College, Shaheed Rajguru College of Applied Sciences, Shaheed Sukhdev College of Business Studies, Sri Guru Gobind Singh College of Commerce [553 seats]

BBA (FIA): Shaheed Sukhdev College of Business Studies, Shaheed Rajguru College of Applied Sciences [136 seats]

BBE: Aryabhatta College, BR Ambedkar College, College of Vocational Studies, Gargi College, Lakshmibai College, Maharaja Agrasen College, Shivaji College, Sri Guru Gobind Singh College of Commerce, Sri Guru Nanak Dev Khalsa College, Sri Guru Tegh Bahadur Khalsa College [473 seats]
