New Delhi: The Jamia Millia Islamia announced on Sunday that admission tests for undergraduate, postgraduate and diploma courses will commence on October 10.
The admission tests for MPhil and PhD programmes’ schedule will be notified later, the university said via a statement. Jamia has received 170,992 applications this year compared to 153,444 it received in 2019.
Admit card can be downloaded from the varsity’s website seven days before the respective admission tests. The admit card will also mention the venue of exams.
The university conducts entrance exams for admissions to 56 undergraduate and 15 postgraduate courses in June every year. This year, however, there has been a delay of three months given the COVID-19 crisis and the subsequent lockdown.
Besides Delhi, tests will also be held in Kolkata, Kozhikode, Srinagar, Patna, Guwahati and Lucknow. The university still hasn’t decided upon the number of centres in these cities.
“Generally, we can conduct tests for 12,000 applicants at the university campus. But due to social distancing norms, which must be implemented in the wake of Covid-19, we will be able to conduct tests for around 4,000 applicants. We are in touch with Kendriya Vidyalaya Sangathan to set up other centres in Delhi,” Ahmad Azeem, media coordinator, was quoted as saying by Hindustan Times.
