DU PG admission 2018: Delhi University has decided to conduct entrance examination for admission to postgraduate courses, MPhil and PhD online from this year onwards.
“It is an Executive Council (EC) resolution… so the entrance test will be online this year. The conducting and implementing part, however, is with the examination department,” a senior official at the university said.
The plan was marred by protests by student organisations last year, who argued that the online test will become a disadvantage to students coming from poor and backward regions.
Earlier this year, Delhi university had invited online bids for conducting the examination in 18 cities.
