2013 onwards, Delhi University may cancel The Common Aptitude Test in English (CATE). This decision comes with the introduction of the four year undergraduate courses in 2013. Instead of the entrance test, they are planning to admit students on the basis of the marks they secure in Class XII exam.
Till 2012, Delhi University conducted this exam for General category students to take admission to B.A English (Hons) course. They were enrolled in this course on the basis of marks obtained in CATE as well as their Class XII marks.
