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

There are 991 seats on offer in the three courses, admission to which 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.
