Syllabus for the Common Entrance Test
This part is intended to test the candidate’s vocabulary and analytical skills at a level essential for accurate comprehension and presentation of material appropriate for this degree. The language background expected will be of the level of English at Senior Secondary Examination. The paper will include passages for comprehension, test of vocabulary (synonyms and antonyms), elementary grammar and syntax.
The section on Analytical Ability and Reasoning will include standard questions on pattern recognition, logic, Venn diagrams etc. It is not intended to be subject-specific.

The University of Delhi was established in 1922 as a unitary, teaching and residential university by an Act of the Central Legislative Assembly. The first convocation of Delhi University was also held in the Assembly Hall in Old Secretariat Building which now houses the Legislative Assembly of Delhi, on 26 March 1923 with 750 invitees. Honorary Degrees were conferred on Lord Reading (Viceroy of India), Sir Md. Jahan and Sir Hari Singh Gaur, the first Vice Chancellor of the University. Only three colleges existed then in Delhi: St. Stephens College founded in 1881, Hindu College founded in 1899 and Ramjas College founded in 1917, which were affiliated to the University. The University thus had a modest beginning with just three colleges, two faculties (Arts and Science) and about 750 students. The first college to move to the campus was St Stephen's in 1942, followed by Hindu, Ramjas and Commerce (now known as Shri Ram College of Commerce). There was Zakir Husain College also, The origin of the Zakir Husain College can be traced to the closing years of the 17th Century.
