New Delhi: Today, on June 26, 2013, the entrance test for Bachelor in Management Studies is scheduled. The test will be conducted in six cities including, Delhi, Kolkata, Allahabad, Chandigarh, Ahmedabad and Hyderabad.
As per information, around 22,000 candidates were registered for admission to 840 seats in six colleges of Delhi University. The courses like Bachelors in Business Economics, Bachelors in Financial and Investment Analysis and Bachelors in Business Studies had been discontinued from this year, after the introduction of BMS course. As the course is placed under the Faculty of Management Studies (FMS), it has grabbed the attention of several students.
The written entrance test will comprise multiple-choice questions. As per the announcement, it has been designed to evaluate the aptitude of the candidates to pursue a Bachelor in Management Studies. There is no fixed syllabus or format for the test. But questions on quantitative ability, reasoning and analytical ability, general English, business and general awareness were a part of entrance tests in the past. The appearing candidates are required to attempt 100 questions in 120 minutes. The answers are to be marked by blue or black ball point pen on a separate answer sheet (OMR) provided during the entrance test.
As per official statement, the test will be followed by an interview. The final selection will be made on the basis of the performance in the test (40% weightage), Class XII result (30%) and the interview (20%). The Dean, Students' Welfare, has stated that based on overall score, a rank shall be allotted to each candidate in each category. Candidates with the higher merit in accordance with the overall score in each category shall be offered admission in the college.
According to the information provided by the university, a counselling session will be organised where candidates will be allotted colleges based on the merit list and their own preference, but the allotment need not be fixed. A candidate will be allowed, in another counselling session later, to change college if seats are available in the desired institution. The candidate should have paid the fees and taken admission in the previous college to be allowed to seek a change.
