Jamia Millia Islamia is going to begin with its admissions for the academic session 2012-13 from Wednesday, while entrance exam for various courses will start from the last week of May. This would be the first time that Jamia would be conducting its undergraduate admissions under the semester mode.
Besides all these, BA (H) Turkish and M.Tech (Nanotechnology) have been introduced in Jamia from this year. Simi Malhotra, media co-ordinator of Jamia said, “We are introducing BA (H) Turkish from this year. The new Nanotechnology centre will offer an M.Tech course from the new academic session. All undergraduate courses will follow the semester system from this year”.
While sale of prospectus will begin on March 28, the last date for admission for forms as well as entrance tests will differ from course to course. The application forms can be downloaded from the university website. Around 6,500 seats are up grabs in various undergraduate and postgraduate courses.
In all courses- except those offered by the faculty of engineering and technology, architecture and ekistics and faculty of dentistry-admissions will be based on merit, which will be determined by a written test followed by an interview. The entrance test and the interview will have 85% and 15% weight, respectively.
Eligibility qualifications for international students in each course/programme will be the same as that for Indian students. 10% of the supernumerary seats will be earmarked for foreigners.
