New Delhi: Jamia Millia Islamia University will hold entrance tests for its B.Tech course outside Delhi in 63 centres Saturday.
The university received 37,000 applications for its 350-seat B.Tech course.
“For the first time, the university moves out of Delhi to conduct its entrance test as the demand is huge for the course. The entrance will be conducted in Patna, Kozhikode, Lucknow, Ranchi, Srinagar and Guwahati,” Simi Malhotra, media coordinator of the university, said Friday.
She said with such an initiative more students can appear for the entrance test in different parts of the country.
“It becomes easier for the students to appear for the test if it is in their city. More students could apply for a seat in the university,” Malhotra told IANS.
“The idea behind conducting the entrance test at such a huge level is to get students from all over the country and make it a national university,” she added.
