Is there a common test for Hindi and English journalism programmes?
When is the entrance test for journalism honours?
There is no common entrance test for BA (H) in journalism. So, each college has announced its own date for the test.
Check the college prospectuses or websites for the schedules.
If I want to apply to two collages won't their test dates clash?
We co-ordinate amongst ourselves and ensure that no clashes happen. So don't worry!
What are the eligibility criteria for this test?
For BA (H) journalism, the requirements include your best-of-four percentage. The best-of-four minimum percentage is different for all colleges. Check the minimum percentage required, and apply.
What is the format of the entrance test? Is there any sample paper for it?
The test is a mix of subjective and objective questions on general awareness, English and current awareness.
