The Delhi University will be holding the entrance exams for its nine undergraduate, all postgraduate, MPhil ,and PhD courses between 6-11 September. However, with only 24 exam centres across the country, reaching the centre has posed a challenge for several students.

“In all of Kerala, the only examination centre is in Thiruvananthapuram, around 400 kilometres away. Perhaps another centre in north or central Kerala would have made it more feasible,” reported The Indian Express, quoting an MSc Chemistry aspirant from Kozhikode.

Amid rising cases of COVID-19 in the country, some students have also been allocated centres in different cities, making travel to their designated centres difficult.

Many postgraduate students had selected Delhi as their centre since they complete their undergraduate courses from Delhi University but were forced to return home to their states due to the COVID-19 outbreak and subsequent nationwide lockdown.

Over 1 lakh more students applied to undergraduate courses at the university this year. The university received a total of 3,53,717 applications in 2020.

The National Testing Agency will be conducting the DUET 2020 entrance exam. The exam will be conducted in a computer-based mode.

Candidates who have registered for the exam can download their admit cards from the official NTA website- http://ntaexam2020.cbtexam.in.
