Delhi University admissions have commenced and so have the entrance tests. Eager to get a seat in courses like Bachelor of Management Studies (BMS), BA in Business Economics (BE) and BBA in Financial and Investment Analysis (FIA), students often panic and make the mistake of not preparing well for the exam.
The university will be conducting a Joint Admission Test for BMS/BBA and BA (Hons.) Business Economics on June 14. The first stage of the entrance would involve 50 percent weightage to the exam, 30 percent weightage to Class 12 scores and 10 percent to the result of personal interview and group discussion.
Students will be tested on their mathematical ability, English, General Awareness and Reasoning. They will be given 120 minutes to answer 120 questions. The exam will be held from 3 pm to 5 pm on June 14.
Each correct answer will get the candidate 3 marks and every incorrect answer will get them 1 negative mark.
Listed below is the structure of the exam, which can help the students perform better:
1. Quantitative Ability
This section of the exam will test the students majorly on their mathematical knowledge of Class 11 and Class 12. Preparation of topics like Relations and Functions, 3-D Geometry and Permutations and Combinations will be an added advantage, since it is expected to majorly be a part of the questions.
2. Reasoning and Analytical Ability
All the candidates to attempt this section should be well equipped with bar-graph analysis and data interpretation. Around 8-10 questions are expected on either a bar-graph or a chart.
This section of the exam is an opportunity for the candidates to project their creative expression. It will consist of questions based on comprehension, idioms and vocabulary that students must achieve by incessant practice.
4. General Awareness
In this section, students should expect questions based on products and their companies, national and international banks and days of national importance.
The students must devote time to the Maths section first and then move to the subsequent sections.This could reduce the number of unattempted questions and encourage students to manage their time better
