The admission committee of the University of Delhi assembled for a press conference on Monday regarding the admission procedure of undergraduate, postgraduate, and research courses. The committee announced that the University will strive to abridge the admission procedure for this session. Last year, 11 cut-off lists were released for admission in various UG courses for around 56,000 seats. The admission process took nearly two months for completion. DU now plans to come up with realistic cut-offs for the upcoming academic season.
The University is mulling over the possibility of holding a computer-based online test for admission to the UG courses. The University has also recommended the colleges to give two percent benefit on the cut-off to OBC women applicants.
A special admission cell to aid northeast students will also be created. Each college will have a deputed nodal officer who will help students from the northeast. The idea of bringing in a moderation policy for different boards is also being considered.
When DU Beat approached Mr. Asutosh Bhardwaj, Officer on Special Duty for Admissions, he said, “The University will be more focused on removing the glitches in the admission procedure that occurred last year.” He further added, “All the recommendations have been taken into consideration.” A committee to formulate policy on deciding merit-based admissions to PG courses will be constituted.
