Delhi University holds English entrance test for admission to B.A

Delhi University holds CATE entrance
Delhi university holds Common Admission Test for English (CATE) for admission to undergraduate B.A degree in English (Honours) from this year. The University is planning to consider Class 12 marks for admission to B.A course.

 

The University had introduced CATE in 2010. While in the first time, 17 colleges had participated and, the number increased to 25 in 2011 and 21 in 2012, including Hindu, Lady Shri Ram, IP College, Kirori Mal and Zakir Husain (evening), accepted the test scores to enroll students.

According to university officials, the test is likely to be put on hold for the time being keeping in view the implementation of the new four-year-undergraduate programme.

Usually, by this time, the English department starts the preparation for the test after receiving the confirmations from different colleges of their participation.

"All departments are engaged in the course preparation. There is just about one-and-half months left for the admission process to start and the university administration is busy with the preparation of the implementation of the new undergraduate programme,"

"The English department, which used to conduct the test, is also busy with the course design. The university is planning to keep the admission process simple, instead of having multiple procedures," said a senior university official.

Sources in the university administration said though a final decision is yet to be taken, in all probability the CATE exam is not happening this year as has been suggested by the English department.

The administration and the admission committee are also of the view that in case the department or colleges wish to have an entrance exam it can be re-introduced in the next academic session.
