Can I give DU JAT 2020 along with CBSE improvement exam in 2 subjects in the same year?

Ayshi Ghosh Student Expert 30th Oct, 2019
Hello Sundaresh,
As per the DU JAT eligibility criteria, candidates who will appear for the class 12 improvement examinations will not be eligible to apply at the same year. They may apply the next year. Also, General category candidates need to have secured a minimum of 60% aggregate in four papers including English, Mathematics and other two elective subjects approved by DU. There is 5% relaxation for reserved categories. Hope this helped!
