Delhi University will conduct the entrance test for 400 seats under the Bachelor of Elementary Education (B.El.Ed.) course on June 20. The course is offered only to women candidates and is available in eight colleges.
The entrance test for the course will be held from 8am to 10am.
The two-hour test will have questions on language, social sciences, mathematics, sciences, and comprehension of Class X level. The exam paper will have two sections and applicants have to clear both the papers.
“The first section is language comprehension in which passages are given. Applicants have to read these passages and answer the multiple choice questions (MCQ). The second section consists of MCQ on all subjects and comprehension. An applicant has to qualify the first language paper so that his second paper can be considered,” said Poonam Batra, professor at Central Institute of Education.
The CIE is involved in designing the test and conducting the counselling for admission to the course in coordination with the colleges.
Admission will be based on merit prepared in accordance with the entrance test results.
Those applying for the course must have passed the Class XII examination with a minimum aggregate of 50% marks, university officials said.
Batra said that it was one of the most specialised courses in teacher’s training which focuses on pedagogy for elementary education. During the four-year course, students learn from a mix of theory and practical classes.
