12th class was my last course and couldn’t go to college for my degree course because my parents didn’t have money to make me study in regular college so I was thinking a lot about how I can study further so best option was distance education from university of Delhi- DDE. This was my plan as my friend told me about it until then I used to think Does Delhi University offer distance education? How can I get admission in Delhi University- DDE? There were only few courses which university of Delhi directorate of distance education offers at under graduate level so the course I took admission was for BA on the basis of my 12th marks. I also choose to study BA in sociology which was 3 years correspondence course. I also wanted to know what is the fee structure for BA in University of Delhi directorate of distance education. The course fee which I paid was around INR 3,700 yearly for BA.
