Q12. Can I give exams like DUJAT with applied math?

 

Ans. There is no clarity yet on this. But logic says that the applicants with applied maths would be allowed to appear for DU JAT exam. As applied maths is introduced specifically for commerce and humanities students. And majority takers of DU JAT are commerce students. Students will avoid taking applied maths if it prohibits them from appearing for DU JAT.
