The application for admission in Delhi University is soaring up. Eligible candidates of all category including sports/ECA can apply. More than 3 lakh students have reportedly applied for the undergraduate course based on merit. This process has been started on 1st June and was supposed to end today on 19th of June. However, the University has extended the last date to apply, making it 22nd June and giving aspirants 3 more days to register. Interested students can visit the university website for the application process.
The latest move by University has also delayed the release of first cutoff. The first cutoff list will now be published on 30 June instead of scheduled 27 June.
This year, the University has made the application process online while last year students can apply either mode, online or offline. Also, this year only five merit list will be announced. This would make admission process faster than the previous year. There could also be an addition of 500 seats to the existing 53,000 seats of 63 colleges. These seats may include some other courses or the annexation of previous courses.
Sources had already suggested that there was a chance of extension of the last date of application and that came out to be true. After a panel recommended the same, the University then extended the process.
Recently, an emergency meeting was held regarding the admission process. According to current dates, the cut off of different colleges will be now announced on 27th June but it got extended for three days after the change took place.
“A proposal regarding the extension of the last date for the registration has come from the admission committee, but the final decision is yet to be taken by the vice chancellor,” said a member of admission committee.
Also, in the meeting, the issue of minority college was put forward. As it has been notified that unlike the previous year, there will be no separate admission process for St Stephen college and Jesus and Marry College which come under minority college. But St Stephens College recently announced dates for sports trial and certification verification on its official website which is not following the university rules. The university is planning to send letters to the college regarding the alteration of dates.
Well known for its high cut off, the admission process of the university is again creating a buzz among students. With anticipated changes in the admission process, the candidates need to keep an eye on the official notifications.
