The admissions for Delhi University undergrad courses has been pushed a week by the varsity and will now begin from 1st June, 2016.
The entire admission procedure will be conducted online this year, as opposed to last year when both online and offline applications were accepted.
DU Registrar Tarun Das said in an official statement that, “The university will be completing registration of PhD, MPhil, Postgraduate and Undergraduate courses based on entrance examination on May 31. The varsity will be launching registration of UG courses immediately after that on June 1.”
This year, registrations under the Sports quota, Extra Curricular Activities (ECA) quota, Kashmiri migrants and Defence category will also be conducted online. The candidates will be required to upload their self attested documents online.
The university had set up a 24 member committee, comprising of college principals, and deans from faculties of science, commerce or arts, to form an admission policy. The admission policy is uploaded on the website every year a week before the admission procedure begins. This year, however it isn’t clear whether the recommendations of the committee have been accepted or not by the VC. The registrar said that the bulleting of information which will include the guide to admission procedure and subsequent procedures will be uploaded on the website on the same day.
Some questions that are confusing students and parents alike, are concession to girl candidates, number of cutoff lists, admission under ECA and sports quota, formulae for calculation of best of four and the inclusion of minority colleges like St. Stephen’s and JMC in the centralized process.
