There is some good news for candidates applying to the BTech programme at Jamia Millia Islamia’s Faculty of Engineering and Technology (FET). The university has decided to scrap the interview process for applicants this year. Elaborating more on the move, Khalid Moin, dean FET, says, “JMI probably was among the very few faculties that followed an entrance test with an interview. However, from this year onwards, the practice is being ceased.”
With the step in place, qualifying with merit in the entrance examination has become the sole criteria for gaining admission to the programme. The entrance examination is an objective-type paper spread over three hours. The syllabus for the examination is mentioned in the prospects, which is available online at www.jmi.ac.in. The exam will be held on June 9 this year.
Speaking on the preparation tips to ace the exam, Moin advises, “In the exam, your strength will be judged in mathematics, physics and chemistry (in order). To score well, revise NCERT books well for concept clarity.”
