DU to Conduct JAT for 3 Business Courses on June 20


Delhi University is all set to conduct the Joint Admission Test (JAT) on June 20th for admission to Bachelor of Management Studies (BMS), Bachelor of Business Administration (Financial Investment Analysis) and BA (Honors) Business Economics.

With 991 seats on offer in the three courses, admission will be based on candidate’s performance in the entrance test followed by a group discussion and personal interview. The test will be between 4pm and 6pm.


Teachers have reported that no syllabus or format has been prescribed for the test, but the questions will encompass General Aptitude, English, Mathematics and Business Knowledge apparently.

“The areas that have been usually included in the entrance test in the past are quantitative ability, reasoning and analytical ability, general English, business and general awareness,” said Kumar Bijoy, a professor at Shaheed Sukhdev College of Business Studies.

The 2-hour test will contain MCQs (Multiple Choice Questions) and there will be negative marking for every wrong answer.

Unlike BA (Hons) Business Economics, there will be a group discussion and personal interview for admission to BMS and BBA (FIA) and the weightage given to entrance exam will be 85% and 15% for GD and interview.


A student who wants to apply for these courses must clear Class 12 board exams with a minimum of 60% in best of four subjects, including English, Mathematics and two other elective subjects.

However, foreign students seeking admission will have to apply through the Foreign Students Advisor.


Those pursuing BMS will have the option of specializing in the final year in one of the three fields — Finance, Marketing and Human Resource, after which they can become financial analysts, data analysts or financial researchers.

Students pursuing BBA (FIA) can go for jobs in fund management and financial management.

The BA (Hons) Business Economics course prepares students to work in banking or financial institutions.
