DU Admissions delayed, likely to start by a couple of weeks

Despite senior officials of the University earlier informing to media that the admission process would start by late April, the plan hasn’t taken off until now. Speaking to one of the newspapers, one senior official involved in the admission process informed that the admissions would mostly start by a week or two. The University is working to make the process smooth this time since the process is online. Last year, several glitches in the online process left students stranded on the first day the cut offs were declared.

The official also informed that University has some work left for admissions process and is checking the entire process to fix the last minute glitches so that the applicants don’t face any problem. “We’re still left with some work to do, including checking websites and servers since the process will be completely online. We need to make sure everything is in order and is functioning properly before we open admissions, otherwise it could lead to chaos. As a result, the admission process has been delayed. We are not sure when exactly admissions will begin, but we need at least a week or two more,” he said.

Earlier university had planned to conduct entrance exams for some of its honours courses like B.Com and B.A hons. Economics which was later scrapped.
