Amidst the admission frenzy, Delhi University is set to change its admission itinerary and extend the online application process till 22nd June 2016. The Admission Committee, which held an urgent meeting recently, unanimously decided to extend the registration process due to OBC-category candidates seeking more time to upload their income certificates online.

Owing to the change in schedule, the first cut-off list will now be released by the university on 30th June instead. Talking to us about the same, Nachiketa Singh, a member of the Academic Council and Central Admission Committee said,”Since the OBC students belonging to the non-creamy layer are facing problem in obtaining the certificates on a short notice, the committee unanimously decided to extend the date. The closing date of admission remains 16th of August though.” The change, interestingly, has nothing to do with the DUTA’s boycott of the admission process, Singh stated.

Another major agenda of the meeting though was the varsity’s displeasure with St. Stephen’s College. The university administration is apparently miffed with the college for not following its schedule and allegedly refusing to participate in the centralised trials for sports-quota admissions.”The committee is of a unanimous opinion that St. Stephens and even Jesus and Mary College must follow the centralised procedure as notified by the varsity. The whole purpose of the High Court directive was to help the students skip the hassle of multiple trials. If the directive is not adhered to, then the university holds the right to withhold enrolment numbers of any student taking admission in these colleges. We have notified St.Stephens College about the same and are awaiting their response,” remarked Singh.

Delhi University has already received over 3 lakh applications for its undergraduate programmes.

DU Beat recently got a chance to interact with television’s new dance sensation and a DU alumnus, Ryan Martyr, who is currently showcasing his dance moves on the dance reality show ‘So You Think You Can Dance’. A contemporary dancer by profession, he wants to build a tree house and organise a buffet for dogs if he wins the dance reality show. Excerpts:

DUB: As an alumnus of a popular DU College like Sri Venkateswara, is there any anecdote you’d like to share with us that you can recall from your days as a member of Verve, the Western Dance Society of Venky? What is your take on DU’s dance circuit in general? 

Ryan Martyr (RM): I earlier wanted to become a footballer. But when I got into college, I “just for fun” auditioned for the western dance society. Surprisingly, everyone loved me and instantly started to believe that I had the potential to be a professional dancer. That’s how I began dancing. My take on DU’s dance circuit is that I feel it gives a budding artist multiple opportunities to showcase his/her potential. The competition and the whole vibe pushes you to grow exponentially. Its absolutely wonderful.

DUB: As a member of a dance society, you must have attended quite a lot of fests at DU. Which college was your favourite to perform at during fests and why?

RM: My favourite college to perform in was Venky itself. The reason being that performing in front of your own college and home crowd gives you a high like none other. The cheering before and after the performance makes you want to push for greatness and definitely brings out the best in you.

DUB: Looking at your immense experience at such a young age, who is that one person/personality that keeps you motivated or whom you admire the most and why?

RM: The one dancer who inspires me a lot is Travis wall from So You Think You Can Dance, America. He began as a dancer on the show, then moved on to being a choreographer, then to a judge on the same show and now he is an Emmy winning choreographer. And in fact, I received a shoutout from Travis wall in my first round on SYTYCD India which was definitely one of the happiest moments of my life till date.


DUB: How did the idea of entering a dance reality show crop up in your mind? What is the larger goal you wish to achieve by performing at a platform of such a mammoth nature? 

RM: Honestly, I never wanted to enter any reality show. I just did because So You Think You Can Dance was the only reason I began dancing and as a young dancer, I always wanted to become a dancer of the same quality and so since the opportunity came knocking, I had to answer it. My larger purpose is to inspire people to follow their dreams and live life whole-heartedly. Hopefully, by dancing my heart out on this show I can achieve this.

DUB: Today the youth is driven by money, fame and the limelight that reality TV has in store. What is your take on the increasing commercial interest that has penetrated a creative industry like dance? Do you think this hampers true talent from coming to the forefront?

RM: I believe that before exposing yourself to fame & money, its very important to develop your art first. There is no point in selling stale art. Once your art is ready there is no harm in exposing it to the world. In fact by doing so, you can inspire millions.


“I believe that before exposing yourself to fame & money, its very important to develop your art first. There is no point in selling stale art.” 

DUB: To choose dance as a career option definitely mustn’t have been a smooth sailing for you, given the larger societal scepticism surrounding it in India. What did it take you to convince your parents and family to let you choose your passion as your career?
RM: Choosing dance was easy. I just had to follow my calling. I knew it the day I felt it, that Dance was for me. Convincing my parents was easy because I was convinced and was showing positive results from day one. I was so dedicated to dance that my parents never felt the need to question my decision. But yes, I have gone through many ups and downs which has just made me stronger.
DUB: Apart from Contemporary, which other dance forms do you enjoy performing?

RM: I love doing hip hop and dancehall. Like honestly, at times I feel I am a better club dancer!

DUB: You have participated at the prestigious Britain’s Got Talent too. How was the experience there different from your experience performing on the Indian National Television? 

RM: I got selected for Britain’s Got Talent too, yes, but I could not participate on the show because I was on a tourist visa. But yes, to showcase my raw soul in a country like England where every dancer is so perfect was quite special.

DUB: Would you like to share something about your ‘guru’? Any memories of any college faculty leaving an impact on you in any way?

RM: I honestly have no guru. I learn and get inspired from almost everyone I meet. I am learning every minute. Wherever I am, I find someone or the other to get inspired from.

DUB: You have become a very exemplary figure among the youngsters as is evident from your growing online support. Any message or mantra you would want to convey to the students who wish to pursue a career in dance?

RM: Keep it simple. Keep it true. Make sure everything you do is full of yourself. Live life like you would never ever live it again. And love yourself!

DUB: If you do win the show, what do you intend to do post your big victory? Any specific goals?

RM: If I do win the show, I want to build myself a tree house. And use some money to publish my book, and definitely make a few songs. Probably have a buffet for all street dogs! I just want everyone to believe that Dreams Do Come True. Just work for it. Live a life people would love to read about.

“I want to build myself a tree house. And use some money to publish my book, and definitely make a few songs. Probably have a buffet for all street dogs!”

Oshikka Lumb, a student of Lady Sri Ram College (LSR), has recently established her startup ‘Markitiers’. The startup is based on youth marketing, investments, CSR and consultancy services. Oshikka, who formed the startup along with her friends, Mahima Sharma and Manav Kaushik, had tried her hands on various startups and then devised a way of forming her own startup friendly organization.

Oshikka Lumb, Founder, Markitiers

An alumnus of Jesus and Mary College, Oshikka had keen interest in Marketing. According to her, there’s a need of providing a suitable platform to the youth. For this purpose, she had implemented the ideas of youth marketing and social startup responsibility, which will aim at empowering programs and campaigns to effectively link brand and the youth. With an aim of changing the conventional ways of marketing, the startup strives to benefit the associated startups and youth at the same time. Coming from a typical academic background, where major struggles include psychological pressures of getting good marks, Oshikka managed to put her best foot forward in the field that interested her the most. Inspired by Steve Jobs, she reflects firmly on the belief of ‘following the gut’ and taking risks to inspire and invent new ideas.

Recently, Oshikka received the ‘Young Entrepreneur’ Award by the Entrepreneurship Cell of LSR. In context of her achievements, she said, “I am glad to see my efforts bearing good results. I would like to encourage all the aspiring young entrepreneurs to trust themselves, discover their ideas and explore their being.” By the year end, she plans to create a social network portal for all startups to ensure their efficient interaction in the market.

In the coming fortnight, nearly 40,000 students will prepare for one entrance exam that will change their lives forever- the Joint Admission Test. And surely, guidance offered from first-hand experience is what all students need right now.

Shaheed Sukhdev College of Business Studies is extremely proud to launch the Admission Campaign 2016 for the Joint Admission Test.

In the coming days, a group of students from the college will be helping the aspirants prepare for the most important day of their life through the following initiatives:

1. Question of the Day

One question from each of the four sections will be posted daily to help the students get a sense of the JAT beforehand:
1. Quantitative Ability
2. Reasoning and Analytical Ability
3. General English
4. Business and General Awareness

2. AskCBSites

Having gone through the admission process themselves, the CBSites know a trick or two when it comes to finishing in the top percentile. Therefore, 4 CBSites will be taking up doubts and queries to help streamline the aspirants’ preparations and giving them wisdom gained from first-hand experience.

3. GD/PI Mentor

The subsequent GD/PI rounds after the JAT matter a lot because of their weightage. And since preparation for this is not entirely possible through a mock round, a bunch of students will be giving expert tips and suggestions to help aspirants ace this round.

You can watch the campaign outline here.

So, all aspirants are requested to stay tuned to the SSCBS page for updates and material:

After a lot of hustle and bustle, The University of Delhi has begun its much anticipated admissions to Undergraduate Courses via complete online registration for the session 2016-17 today. With the admissions going completely online this year, the varsity has introduced some crucial changes to the admission procedure which must be kept in mind by all the hopeful candidates. Read along as we try to collate all the important information for you about this admission season.

I. The registration process 

Every DU aspirant is required to register online on the DU UG Admissions Portal in order to be eligible for admission to various DU colleges and courses. Online registration details are available on the following UG admission portal:

In order to not miss out on any crucial dates and deadlines, take a look at the important dates that you must be well versed with, in the table below:

A. Important dates: 

Online registrations begin

1 June 2016

Closing date for online registrations

19 June 2016

Release of first-cut off list

27 June 2016

Commencement of classes

20 July 2016

Closing date of admissions

16 August 2016

B. Online registration fee for admission to UG Courses (2016-17) 

The registration fee for the UG form is to be paid online. It is significant to note that a candidate’s application submission process shall be completed only after payment of the online registration fee. The fee structure for online registration for different categories are as given below:

Registration fee for UR/OBC

Rs. 100 (Non-refundable)

Registration fee for SC/ST/PwD Rs. 50 (Non-refundable)
Registration fee for Sports/ECA

Rs. 100 (Additional, Non-refundable)

After payment of the online registration fee, corrections, additions, deletions etc. in any manner shall not be allowed in the registration form. The candidates are, therefore, advised to fill their forms carefully. Candidates can fill as many Course Choices as they want. There will be no extra fee being charged for the same.

C. Important documents to keep handy during online registration 

In the Mandatory upload section, the applicant has to upload the following items:

a) Passport size photograph of the applicant. The specification of the passport size photo is same as that used in the Indian Passport.

b) Scanned signature of the applicant

c) Self attested copy of Class X Board Certificate (for the date of birth)

h) Self attested copy of Extra Curricular Activities Certificate(s), if applicable.

The University will accept self-attested copies of documents / papers provided by the students. The varsity has made it clear that if any false attestation / falsified records are detected, the student will be debarred from attending any course in the University / or its Colleges for next five years and in addition, a criminal case under relevant sections of IPC will be instituted against him/her. 

III. Eligibility criteria for various courses:

The most important question that arises while taking admission in DU is the confusion and ambiguity of whether a student is actually eligible for the course of his/her choice. The university thus, like each year, has come up with a comprehensive list of eligibility criteria for various courses across the three streams of Arts, Commerce and Science.

You can take a look at the UG Bulletin of Information for more insight about the eligibility criteria here.  

III. The Admission Process after release of first cut-off

An aspiring DU student must keep a regular check on the university website and the website(s) of the college(s) of the candidate’s choice. As per the varsity, the First Cut-Off list will be released on 27th June, 2016, therefore, a candidate must keep a tab on the DU website around the same date.

It must be kept in mind that the announcement of cut-off lists for all courses/categories (UR/OBC/SC/ST/PwD/KM) will be made through University website. Once the cut-off list is released, the candidates who meet the requisite cut-off will have to login to the UG admission portal and select the college/course where the candidate wishes to take admission and check whether he or she meets the desired cut-off criterion.

Once the candidate meets the cut-off and the rest of the criteria for the specific course he/she wants to pursue, the aspirant will have to take the print out of the admission form and together with the list of documents (as mentioned above) proceed to the respective college for verification of mark sheet, calculation of cut-off percentage depending on the course and verification of other documents. The schedule for verification of documents in the colleges is as given below:

The Delhi University Teacher’s Association boycotted the evaluation of scripts for undergraduate examinations as on 24th May against the UGC Gazette Notification of 4th May which will lead to loss of jobs for around 5000 ad-hoc, temporary and guest teachers. Most of them have been teaching in the university for many years.  All twelve evaluation centers were closed on the first day of boycott. Evaluation halls at Daulat Ram College and Miranda House were locked; the ones at Keshav Mahavidyalaya, Dyal Singh and Gargi colleges were vacant, as reported by a popular national daily. 

According to a DUTA statement, the Amendment was issued under the guise of addressing the teacher’s grievances against the infamous API system which had led to large scale denial of promotions and devalued research and teaching. It also contained a secret clause that had a direct impact on the teachers’ working hours. For Assistant professors, the workload increased from 16 hours of direct teaching to 18 hours, plus 6 hours of tutorials. Similarly for Associate professors, working hours have been increased from 14 to 22 hours.

“DUTA demands that the government withdraws the Gazette notification immediately and initiates a dialogue with Teacher’s Associations on the issue”, said the statement.

Teachers across the University expressed their anger over a four day boycott during which period, Staff Associations will hold meetings and pass resolutions on the issue. A General Body Meeting of DUTA will be held on 28th May to analyse the situation and decide further course of action. If the government does not withdraw the notification, teachers might even boycott the admission process.

Delhi University’s minority colleges such as St. Stephen’s and Jesus and Mary College are all set to join the varsity’s centralised admission process this academic session. The move comes in response to a meeting held by a 24-member admission committee that recommended that all colleges under DU should participate in the centralised online registration process. These institutions, however, will continue with their own admission policy of selection of students despite having an alignment with centralised admission process.

“The student will have to first register on the DU website and then go to the website of these colleges and fill their form as well,” remarked Nachiketa Singh, a member of the admission committee while talking to a popular national daily.

As per this move, students will first have to fill the centralised UG admission form and then provide the registration number given by DU to proceed with the admission process in these individual colleges. The colleges will, however, continue to have a separate merit criteria under which they are free to issue their own cut-off lists.

Mata Sundari College for Women, Sri Guru Nanak Dev (SGND) Khalsa College and Sri Guru Gobind Singh College of Commerce -the three colleges run by the Delhi Sikh Gurudwara Management Committee (DSGMC) which were granted minority status by the Delhi High Court last year, have also approached the varsity authorities to permit them to have independent admission process from the upcoming session.

After 14 yrs of schooling, every student hallucinates about a fanciful college life, full of fun and frolic! While the transition from being a school kid to a college goer is an indescribable experience, however, just like a mountain, this experience has its own peaks and valleys. Read along as we try to give words to this adventurous expedition by taking a timely peek-a-boo into the reality of college life.

The new found freedom

Before delving deep into the realities of the adult world, give yourself a pat on the back for surviving the laborious journey of schooling in a regressive system of education in India. Having aced this long yet memorable journey, you are now set to embark upon a completely unprecedented ride of college life. From fantasies of having a hike in pocket money, travelling alone, living in a new city to the far-fetched ideas of trying all sorts of whacky things and making lots of friends, college opens a pandora’s box for a student. The month of May becomes that time of the year where every 12thie realises that they were living without good clothes all this while and urgently need a wardrobe makeover. Hopes of finding the perfect match/true love for oneself too becomes a priority. The ‘college main sab chalta hai’ ideology keeps a student busy in his or her little bubble. But honestly, all play and no work is a mantra that sadly doesn’t work in college.

Within no time you’ll start cribbing about how the metro is so crowded and it has become your second home as you end up spending a crucial amount of time, each day, in commuting from home to college and vise-versa. The idea of going to new places every time also goes out of the window as you realise you don’t have money by the end of the month. The myth that college is an easy road is broken the moment you have to sign a bond for short attendance and also face the wrath of the teachers who give you nothing but sadistic looks.

The struggle and rise of the ‘Relatives’

If you think CBSE result is the last time you’ll see the rise of the relatives, you are mistaken my friend. After witnessing a gamut of emotions from elation to dejection during college admissions, relatives leave no stones unturned to unlock the next level of ‘intrusive behavior’ as their new jingle becomes ‘Iske baad age kya plan hai?’. We talked to a few students from some off-beat courses to know more.

Gairik Ghosh from Institute of Hotel Management, Ahmedabad, who is now specialising in Food Production told us, “I had frankly told my parents that I won’t be able to excel in any regular course and I won’t be able to do justice to any random course they choose for me. Cooking is what I like and I told them about the same. I had to make them understand that this field was promising enough. It was tough, but I ended up doing what I like best.”

Yamini Gupta, who is pursuing Music Honours from Miranda House College too has a similar story to share as she says, “I wanted to do something in music since the very beginning while my family wanted me to opt for a conventional course. It is sad when I have to explain to my friends and relatives that the course I am enrolled in is different and not an easy one and unlike them, during our exams and practicals, we can’t even cheat! Relatives have always been quick to question the scope of my course, what papers do I have and what benefits I’ll derive from such a degree after 3 yrs, but I am happy and content with what I have as this is what I wanted to pursue.”

College life : Level unlocked, you may resume play! 

After being through a regimented system of schooling, college life does end up making you look like a lost puppy in the initial days. Unaware of the nuances of college life, you’ll take weeks to figure out how to read your time table and end up chilling the entire semester until you realise that you have exams to give in the month of November! It won’t be long once you start liking memes on Facebook about how you love your sleep and hate getting up for morning lectures. Friendships too don’t last longer than any GoT character, unless you are lucky enough to find people who stick by you through thick and thin. There also comes a time when you realise how you’ve become a guinea pig to DU’s experiments and why the world is at Sharda University after all!

Somewhere between making plans to hang out with friends to sleep becoming your best friend, college life happens. It teaches you patience, perseverance and that you’ll be judged by anybody and everybody. It is a whole new experience that no other place can offer. So shed all the inhibitions, believe in yourself and remember, in the real world, toil never ends.
