CATE Exam to be held tomorrow !

Justify FullCommon Entrance Test for English, CATE which is to be held tomorrow, i.e. 9th June, 2010, was started two years back in 2008. The exam is for the entrance into undergraduate English Honours courses, in one of the 17 out of 47 colleges of Delhi University providing education in English honours. The forms for the entrance examination have already been sold out and the last date for the submission of the form was 31st May, 2010. Undergraduate courses in English honours have always been the top priority of the arts students. Also, many other students who want to opt for communication courses go for English honours at undergraduate level to make themselves aware of the technicalities of the English language.

CATE has come as a good option for students to get rid of entrance examinations of individual colleges. There are a total of 500- 600 general seats available in all the 17 colleges of DU, which are a part of the CATE examination body. Colleges like LSR, Miranda house are also a part of the CATE, which is quite profitable for the students, as would not have to sit for their individual entrance examinations and on the basis of their score card can get to choose the college of their choice. The results for the CATE exam will be declared on 19th June, 2010. Also, the number of students appearing for the examination this year are triple than what appeared last year, which shows the increasing interest of the students in the English Honours course.

There is no set syllabus for the CATE entrance examination, you will be judged on the basis of your knowledge in English literature and writing skills, which are must for a language student. The exam is tomorrow and all of you appearing for the CATE exam must be preparing for it. I would only suggest, just be cool, calm, confident and clear on your facts and you would surely be able to grab a seat for yourself in one of those 17 colleges for pursuing an undergraduate course in English Honours.
