After the meeting of the Standing Committee on Friday, Delhi University has decided the mode of Entrance exams. Students appearing for the examination at all the centres in Delhi-NCR will have the choice between online and offline test. Computer based test has been made mandatory for all the remaining 17 cities’ centres in the country. The online registration process for these Entrance based courses begins from 31 MAY 2017.

Delhi University tried to make the online entrance exam compulsory for all prevailing centres but faced great protests from ABVP, DUSU, and a group of teachers. The dissenting parties were of the view that students from backward backgrounds will face trouble while sitting for an online exam. ABVP also added that DU has not consulted the Student’s Union or¬† teachers before arriving to this decision.

Therefore, after huge opposition, the Standing Committee on yesterday, decided to give relief to the students, who will enroll for the exam in Delhi-NCR centres, by providing the choice between online or pen-paper based test. The choice is valid for all PG, entrance based UG, M.PHIL and PHd courses.

However, ABVP and DUSU remain unsatisfied by this step.They still disagree with the university and want the same choice at all centres.


The committee also decided that there will be no hike in the Entrance test fees. This means the charges for attempting the Entrance exam remain INR 500 instead of the proposed INR 650.

The Entrance tests will begin in JUNE 2017.
