New Delhi, May 30 (IANS) To help them get through the Post Graduate (PG) entrance test, the Delhi University (DU) on Tuesday announced a “summer school” for students coming from disadvantaged sections of society.

For a second year in a row, the university will be organising such classes for the students identified as candidates from Economically Weaker Section (EWS), SC, ST, OBC, minority and Persons with Disability (PwD) categories.

“This year, the university plans to hold free classes for PG entrance examinations in five disciplines: English, Law, Mathematics, Physics and Zoology. The duration of the classes will be about two weeks,” the varsity said in a statement.

The application form for “DU Pre-Entrance Summer School 2017” can be downloaded from the DU website and submitted at the Institute of Lifelong Learning (ILLL) at North Campus between May 31 and June 5 from 2 p.m to 5 p.m, and on June 6 — the last day for applying — the forms will be accepted between 10 a.m and 2 p.m.

Not all students will, however, be able to avail the “school” facility and seats will be allocated on a first-come basis. A nominal fee of Rs 100 will be charged from the selected students.

The tentative dates for the commencement of classes of different subjects are June 7 and June 9.

The online registration for the PG admissions will start from May 31.
