Guru Gobind Singh Indraprastha University (GGSIPU) announced its admission schedule for the 2011-2012 academic year, with three new programmes and admission reforms. University forms went on sale from March 1.
There are more than 20,000 seats up for grabs. The university released three brochures for admission to professional programmes (Admission Brochure I); engineering and BArch (Admission Brochure II) and PG medical programmes (Admission Brochure IV).
At a press conference, DK Bandyopadhyay, vice chancellor, said, “The university, from this academic session, is going to start three new courses — MBA (hospitality management), MBA (financial market) and BBA (financial market).” The MBA in financial market and BBA in financial market programmes would be launched in association with the National Stock Exchange.
Aspirants can submit the CET 2011 application form and the fee at ipu.admissionhelp.com, Bandyopadhyay said.
This year, admissions to around 85 programmes will be through 48 common entrance tests (CETs) for seats in 11 schools of the university and in 103 affiliated institutes.
GGSIPU is going to hold the CETs for four of its most sought-after programmes - MBA, MBBS, BTech and MCA - in Delhi, Bangalore, Chandigarh, Jaipur, Kolkata, Lucknow, Bhopal, Jalandhar, Nagpur, Shimla, Muradabaad, Hisar and Dehradun. The test for other courses will be held only in Delhi.
Elaborating on the changes in the process, Bandyopadhyay said, "As a part of the examination reforms carried out by the university, we have decided that the applicant is required to fill the admission form in his own handwriting, which would be crosschecked at various stages of the admission process." He added, "To maintain transparency in the admission process, the students will be required to paste a bigger colour photograph with white background." He emphasised that candidates must go through the brochures thoroughly before filling the forms.
The application forms are available at 44 designated branches of Indian Bank, 22 in Delhi and 22 outside.
The last date for the submission of the filled-in-applications for most of the programmes is April 25, 2011.
