Admissions to University of Delhi through CU-CET from this year: VC | Delhi News
This was revealed to YOU by Vice Chancellor Yogesh Singh on Saturday. The Department of Education and the National Testing Agency (NTA) are responsible for conducting the exams.
This puts an end to speculation that the university might opt for its own entrance exams. A notification issued by the university on December 20, 2021 said, “The University of Delhi Executive Board, at its meeting on December 17, 2021, decided that admissions for the 2022-2023 academic session in all undergraduate course… be taken through the Central University Common Entrance Test (CUCET) or the University of Delhi Common Entrance Test (DUCET).
“We are working on the project. We will soon be forming a committee to look at the whole process and coordinate with the ministry and the NTA, ”Singh said.
“Since the initial announcement, not much has happened on this front. The university may be waiting for a direction or clarification from the ministry. With the upsurge in Covid cases, I just wonder how the ministry is going to proceed, ”said a university official. According to the normal schedule, the admission process for UG courses begins in April-May. He was delayed for the last two sessions due to Covid and the admission process took place in September-October.
The university has opted for entrance exams to counter the high thresholds and disproportionate number of student admissions from some boards. The university had formed a committee to study the admission models and it found that Kerala students dominated the seats in the popular colleges.
Twelve central universities – none from Delhi – are now part of CU-CET. The exams have so far been held for 64 undergraduate and integrated courses organized by these universities. There are multiple choice questions (MCQs) for bachelor’s and bachelor’s degree courses. So far no business exam has been held, but the B.Com (H) and B.Com program are popular DU courses.
The question document for BSc has two parts – part A is English, general knowledge and numerical skills with 25 points awarded while part B is subject specific, such as physics, chemistry, mathematics and biology, with 25 other points. For the BA / Diploma, mainly humanities courses, his English, his numerical skills / data interpretation, his analytical skills, his reasoning, his general aptitude and his general knowledge of 100 points. After the entrance exams, each university publishes its own merit list and organizes advice.
Teachers are divided over the decision to hold exams. Critics believe this will foster a culture of coaching that will ultimately deprive students from the poorest strata of society.
