BMMMC Delhi University
Indraprastha College for Women (IPCW) will recommence the entrance examination for its course of Bachelors in Multi Media and Mass Communications (BMMMC) soon. The entrance will be a two tier system of examination.
The entrance examination had been an essential, mandatory and integral part of the process of admission to the course of BMMMC in IPCW till three years back, until the four year undergraduate program marked its entry to the University of Delhi. BMMMC is a self financed course offered exclusively by IPCW in Delhi University.
It is an integrated and sundry course that constitutes and covers eclectic branches of media studies. The college boasts of a block that is solely dedicated to BMMMC. The college is also well-equipped with a studio for the aspiring media professionals and an editing bay. With an adept array of professors and guest lecturers from the field of media and a class apart infrastructure, the BMMMC course of IPCW is one of the best in the country.
The change in the nomenclature of the course from BMMMC to BJMC (Bachelors in Journalism and Mass Communications) during the time of FYUP was the sole reason behind the withdrawal of the two tier entrance examination. For the three years, admission to this course has been on the basis of the merit list released by the college. The entrance exam will be held in two parts. Part I is to be conducted on 21st June. The candidates who clear the Part I Entrance Exam need to appear for Entrance Exam II later. The final list of the candidates will be declared in June and will also be put up on the college website. There is hence a change in the eligibility criteria for the candidates appearing for the exam. A required percentage is essential to be eligible to appear for the entrance examination. Other important details including the structure of the question paper for the entrance exam are available on the college site. Last year, even after the departure of the FYUP system of education, the process of admission to BMMMC on the basis of the merit list prevailed. The shift from the three year undergraduate program to the four year undergraduate program in 2013 and the rolling back of the FYUP in 2014 kept the entrance at bay, so as to keep the entire process of admission smooth and hassle free. Finally, the entrance examination has been brought back which, according to many, will help the department to put a check on and retain its limited seats for the students.
The English Journalism courses in other colleges of the University of Delhi will continue to take students on the basis of the cutoff percentage that will be declared soon.
