DU to conduct CATE on June 5 for BA (Hons) in English

Posted Tue, 01 May 2012 05:44:29 -0000

Are you planning to pursue BA (Honours) in English from Delhi University? Then you need to apply for Common Aptitude Test for English (CATE). The forms for the CATE exam will be available from 16th May, 2011. At least 21 DU colleges will grant admission to students in undergraduate courses in English via this test. Students can buy the form from all the listed colleges till 26th May. The CATE is scheduled to be held on 5th June. This year five more colleges have become members of this board. The prestigious Lady Shri Ram College has finally accepted to be part of CATE. The other four other colleges are- Kirori Mal, Janaki Devi Mahavidyalaya, Rajdhani and Vivekananda. The department of English is also launching full-time dedicated helplines for CATE aspirants this year.

All these 21 colleges will give admission to students on the basis of their CATE score and their score in Class XII exams. The colleges will give 70% weightage to CATE score and 30% weightage to Class XII marks. In Delhi University there are just 1000 seats available for this undergraduate programme. The department of English is expecting almost 12,000 applications for just 1000 seats. Sumanyu Satpathy, head, department of English that conducts CATE every year, said, "Many students take up admission in BA (honours) English just because they think they have a good command over the language. But soon they lose interest or even drop out. One positive result of CATE has been that the number of such students has reduced significantly." He added that the purpose of this exam to evaluate the candidate's aptitude for literature and their creative writing skills.

This is the third year when Delhi University is conducting this exam to admit students in BA English (Honours). At the time of its inception, the department started with just 12 colleges in 2009 which went up to 17 last year and 21 this year. Satpathy said, "More and more colleges have understood the benefit of admitting students through CATE which is why the number of participating colleges has been steadily increasingly." He further added, "We are also going to have five mobile numbers as helplines which will be functional from 9am to 5pm every day. Last year, we had given out the personal numbers of teachers but these will be dedicated only for handling queries of the aspirants. The numbers shall be put up on DU website by Wednesday."

The test will be conducted at 23 centres across the city. The course is divided into two parts - basic knowledge about books and authors and second is writing skills. The result of the CATE exam will be declared on 13th June, 2011 following which the college will release their first cut offs taken from CATE score and class XII marks on 15th June.

    Hi, I am Shivam Malhotra, and I have a keen interest in Literature. I teach literature and create an environment where the students feel comfortable with their subject. I understand the capabilities of students and help them to become passionate about what they study. I am studying literature since long time now, and it continues to be a grand learning experience for me. I feel honored to pass the same experience, which I have gained, until now, to my students. Literature is a composition of different kinds of Genres. Romanticism is one of them, which is very captivating. The romanticism got hold of my attention not just because of the word romance but knowing the fact it is all about romancing with life. Learning literature is one thing but teaching and introducing the great writers and poets to the next generation is an honour. I am privileged to do this at our Academy and would like to invite you to be a part of literature.
