DU Admissions 2020: No entrance-based admission for any new course
Last year’s pattern will be followed and DUET will be conducted for admission to over 10 UG courses.
While the University of Delhi (DU) is yet to release the official schedule for this year’s admissions on their website, the registration may start from the first week of April. The complete admission schedule will be jointly announced by the National Testing Agency (NTA) and DU.
According to Delhi University's dean of admissions, Pankaj Arora, they are trying to reschedule the admission process to avoid clashes with the classes and complete it within the set timeline. He also said that no entrance-based new courses will be introduced and NTA will continue to conduct entrance tests.
The Delhi University Entrance Test (DUET) is conducted to enroll students in selected undergraduate courses (UG). The names of such UG courses are listed below:
- Bachelor of Management Studies (BMS)
- BA (Honours) Business Economics
- BTech (Information Technology and Mathematical Innovations)
- BA Honours (Humanities & Social Sciences)
- Bachelor of Business Administration (Financial Investment Analysis)
- Bachelor of Elementary Education (B.El.Ed)
- Five-Year Integrated Programme in Journalism.
Earlier, speculations were making rounds that entrance exams will be made mandatory for all courses at the UG level. However, the university has put all such speculations at rest by confirming that the previous pattern will be followed for all entrance-based admissions.
Seeking feedback and suggestions to improve the admission process and make it student-friendly, the university released an online form in 2019. Almost 210 responses came in the first round talking about the requirement of one-time document verification to single forms for admissions. On this, the dean explained that the suggestions are being analysed and the shortlisted ones will be executed in the upcoming admission process. The authorities have also extended the date and new suggestions are welcome till January 31. Introducing a single form for all colleges is also under consideration, however, doing so is a challenge because different colleges have different requirements. But, it is definite that the authorities are working on making the admission process as easy as possible.
