With early registration, de-linking of sports and ECA admissions, reduction in slack for stream change, and usage of CBSE’s database for mark sheet, the aspiring DU students could look forward to a much-simplified experience.

Delhi University (DU) will open the admission portal for the academic year 2019-20 on 15th April, which is much earlier than what was normative in previous years, when it started in the month of May. The registrations will close on May 7, giving the students a shorter duration for filling in their forms, thereby, perhaps limiting the number of applications.
In another novel step, the portal will be reopened on 20th May for students to update their marks and course, and make amends in case of any mistakes. This had been a long-standing demand of students, and previously too, the university had received many grievances about the same.
Rajeev Gupta, who is the chairman of the admission committee, and also the dean of students’ welfare, made public the schedule on Friday.
Besides, the varsity will also restrict the number of times applicants can change courses or colleges during the process of admissions. That number is not known at the moment, but there will be updates on the same soon. Allegedly, it was the principals throughout DU who suggested these changes for undergraduate admissions.
Earlier, on changing their stream, the students faced a five per cent deduction in their best-of-four. The university has now reduced it to only two per cent, making it much easier for students to get enrolled in the course of their choice.
Another much talked-about topic when it comes to admissions in DU is the Sports and Extra Curricular Activity (ECA) quotas. Here, the students who have sufficient skill and certificates for the same, give trials and are ranked accordingly to secure admissions in colleges. Up till now, these trials were a part of the main admission procedure and were linked to cut-offs to some extent, if not completely. Now, the admissions for Sports and ECA will be held separately and will be de-linked to the main procedure completely. The admissions to candidates under this section will begin on 20th May.
All the affiliated colleges, barring St. Stephen’s College and Jesus and Mary College have the combined admission process.
Another thing that DU is trying to do differently is to contact CBSE to use their database, so the colleges could get the students’ mark sheet directly, which would result in ending the practice of submitting the many certificates, and also any chance of forfeited documents.
Colleges will be required to include representatives from various categories such as SC, ST, OBC, EWS, northeast, in their grievance committees, the varsity said. With DU implementing the EWS quota, more seats are expected to be added this year.
With so many things to look at, DU Beat suggests all aspiring students to continually keep track of the changes that are being made, and update their documents accordingly. DU’s official website along with other media houses must be visited regularly for early information and updates. While filing the online admission form, double or triple checking all information will ensure that students don’t have to worry about correcting the information later. Gap year students must have an affidavit and a fresh character certificate ready. ECA and sports category aspirants must also keep checking their schedules and venues of trials.
Rest assured, it can be said that the admission process this year will be much smoother.

The recent Delhi School of Journalism protests have successfully managed to shine a spotlight on the inadequacies of the college’s administration. The protest centred around the main issue of the lack of proper infrastructural facilities provided by the college. This ongoing unrest has sparked a conversation about the insufficiencies and/or misleading tendencies of most of the prospectuses provided by Indian colleges. 

Vibrant in colour, with crisp edges, and fanciful words printed on glossy paper, the average Indian college brochure is a folding of ambiguous, and sometimes misleading information. The main aim of a prospectus is to provide information to prospective students regarding; courses, campus life, faculty, and co-curricular activities etc. making it an extremely important first step for students joining the college. The University of Delhi provides an online prospectus to students on its website, and hard copy of the same on a payment basis, during the student admission process. As the number of private institutions and universities are increasing in number, their attractive brochures and world-class infrastructure are heavily promoted, making it hard to keep a tab on how real this promotion is, and whether it can actually live up to all its attractive promises. With the recent protests undertaken by the students of the Delhi School of Journalism, it is imperative to understand why there is such a parity between what the college prospectuses showcase and what is actually provided. 

I remember during the time of selecting colleges, we were very particular on getting a firsthand opinion from an already going student there instead of completely relying on the prospectus and counsellors because we wanted to be sure ten-fold before stepping into the right college.” Says Nikki Chaudhary, a second-year student of English honours in Maitreyi College.

A major complaint which Indian institutions in the education sector face is, the improper utilization of resources, that is, regarding equipment provided in terms of labs, or basic facilities in the classrooms. There may be faulty projectors or air-conditioners which hardly work. “Our fans also work super slow, and it gets very tough to manage especially in the warmer seasons”, adds Nikki Chaudhary. While ventilation is a major problem in a majority of Indian schools and colleges, there have been multiple reports on behalf of the students wherein the ACs are just a show-piece in the classrooms, as they hardly work.

Before getting into DU for psychology, my other options were MU and Christ University. I feel that the prospectus was in itself very high and beaming, but the condition of the labs was a dismay. It is just sad to see how misleading the brochures can get.” Says Gargi Singh, a first-year student of Psychology Honors in Kamala Nehru College.

While the condition of our western counterparts may be slightly similar, Tim Pippert, a sociologist at Augsburg College in Minnesota reveals, “Diversity is something that is being marketed… They’re trying to sell a campus climate, they’re trying to sell a future. Campuses are trying to say, “If you come here, you’ll have a good time, and you’ll fit in”. This being said, a lot of the college prospectuses in foreign universities mainly focus on areas such as campus life and try to project unrealistically positive scenarios.  

Campus tours/ Open days usually start before, or during, the admission process and help students determine whether the college is what they are looking for. Then again, the way admissions take place in western universities is quite different from how they are conducted here. Moreover, with the rising number of scams in the education sector, the ingenuity of educational institutions is constantly tested. 

The University Grants Commission website is a good place to start while researching on any educational institute. It lists every educational institution and from time to time releases reports regarding admission processes etc. As of now, a list of twenty-two self-styled unrecognized universities {a few still under investigation) has been released, so that students, as well as parents, can be better informed against misinformation and malpractices.

Paying Guest accommodations can be like the film adaption of books: Almost always terrible without the essence of the original, that is, the home.

While most Paying Guest Accomodation (PG) owners claim zealously to replicate aspects of your home, with some even going to the extent of naming their PGs, “Home Away From Home”, most fail to do the same. Now that the admission season is at its peak, here is a guide to PG hunting for students looking for an accommodation in the city.

The Curious Case of the ‘5-Minute Walking Distance’:

Regardless of whether the PG is at a distance of 1.5 kilometers or 15 kms away from college, the claim of it being at a 5-minute walking distance from the concerned prospective client’s college is universal. As you will realize for yourself, it is wise to manually check the distance between your prospective PG and college or the market rather than accepting your prospective proprietor’s fraudulent claims at face value.

Inclusive Of All Overhead Costs: A Myth:

When I had gone PG hunting last year, one PG proprietor in Kamla Nagar had told me, “Sab Included Hain Ji (everything is included). Electricity, food charges, everything is included in your rent.” While I seemed impressed by the cost effectiveness of the entire proposition, I still wanted to verify these claims by taking first-hand information from the inmates of the PG. When I asked around, I was told that besides laundry and the electricity bill for the AC, the residents also had to pay for the drinking water. I understood that “Everything Is Included” is a tag-line fondly used by proprietors to seize the prospective residents. Students are advised not to fall prey to these fancy claims. Proprietors are like mobile service providers. They promise too much, deliver very little.

Exclusive Electricity Charges: A Tale of Wondrous Deception

In PGs wherein the electricity bill is not included within the rent, there remains room for ghastly swindling and tampering with the power units recorded on the meter. Doreen Barpujari, a student of Ramjas College who was a resident of a PG in Shakti Nagar told DU Beat, “For the first few months, the meter in my room displayed that I had consumed 500 units which is a a massive amount considering the fact that I didn’t even have an AC in my room. As such, I had to pay over INR 1,000 in those months.” She added, “Finally, a group of us who were victims of similar grievances decided to go on a fact-finding mission. We realised that the proprietor had been trifling with the power meters in our rooms to secure extra money from us.”

The Fable of The ‘One Fruit Everyday’:

During the admission season last year, when I had first visited the PG wherein I would spend the next one year, I remember my proprietor bragging, “We give one fruit everyday. That is why, year after year, our rooms get filled up after the first cut-off list itself.”

Both of his claims, I realised much later, were as perfidious as Donald Trump’s hair. The authenticity of all three were questionable. Halfway into my first month in the PG, I realised that far from providing us with ‘one fruit everyday’, the food wasn’t half as good as the sample I was made to taste when I had first visited it. In fact, this act of fabricating their quality of food is a common phenomenon in most PGs. While some PGs send special instructions to the cook to prepare the most appetizing of food for sampling during the admission season, others hire specialists in food making as long as the cut-off lists keep coming. It is important not to be lured by this duplicity and confirm the food-related claims through first-hand information from the residents themselves.

Security Money Scandals:

Most PGs require the residents to deposit a particular amount of money as ‘security deposit’, mostly fixing it as two months’ of rent or more. The idea behind keeping an amount for security is to ensure that the residents do not leave the PG in the middle of the academic session. For if they do, it becomes a herculean task to fetch new residents. While most PGs pledge to return the security deposit when the residents leave, only a few PGs religiously follow this pledge. The DU Beat correspondent was told by Priyanka Singh, a student of Hansraj College, “My PG only returned half of the security deposit.” On the other hand, Tanvi Ghosh, a student Ramjas College testified, “My PG did not return the security deposit at all. Despite repeated calls and warnings of taking legal action, I did not get the security money back. One idea to prevent this swindling of money is to document all cash transactions in legal terms and bonds, the absence of which allows the PG proprietors to fleece money and trick the students.

Washroom Woes:

For rooms without an attached bathroom, most PG proprietors try to accommodate a number of residents within the ambit of one common washroom itself. Pallavi Das, a student of Shri Guru Tegh Bahadur (SGTB) Khalsa College lived in a PG in Mukherjee Nagar for a year. She shared her washroom woes with this correspondent, “I had booked a room without an attached washroom and I was told that only 3 people would be sharing the washroom which was allotted to me. Two days after living in the PG, I noticed that the washroom would be occupied every time that I had gone to use it. Two more days later, I realized that my washroom had been allotted to 7 other people.”

Like all other businesses, PGs are also run by both well-meaning and duplicitous people. Moving away from home is a task in itself requiring immense change and adjustment. Your PG adding to your problems and making the transition even more complicated is a recipe for disaster. Therefore, do not be lazy while researching for PGs. Look at all possible accommodation in person,  ask detailed questions, have all transactions and promises on the record, and seek recommendations and feedback from current residents while making this decision that will greatly affect your college life.

College admissions are marked by numerous decision making and countless bits of advice. While all of this sounds perplexing and stress-inducing, one must navigate through a number of factors to make that one careful and calculated choice of college selection. Here are some dos and don’ts for the same. 


  1. Learn about the college Faculty

It is important to learn about and interact with the faculty of a college before you take admission in it. Every renowned college may not have an amazing faculty for every course. Therefore, you must find out whether the course you want to opt for has a reputed faculty in the college. When you interact with them, you’ll also understand their demeanor. A friendly, knowledgeable, and supportive teacher is always better.

  1. Talk to students

It would positively add to your decision if you are able to talk to the students of the college doing the course you aspire to do. You will get to hear about first-hand experiences of what you are stepping into. You are allowed to talk about your priorities and apprehensions with them. There are some questions which they can answer more honestly than the faculty example, ‘Are the teachers understanding towards ECA students?’

  1. Visit and research about the college prior to taking admission 

Believe it or not, there is something about getting the ‘vibe’ of a college before you become a part of it. It is important to visit the college before getting admission there so that you can get a first-hand experience. However, prior to that, you must research the college. Some of your focuses must be its fests, library, Student Union, grounds, and auditorium. A good infrastructure and governing body will always make the college life easier.

  1. Get an unbiased opinion on comparing a college with other colleges available to you

It is important to compare a college with all the other options available to you. You must never look at a college as an isolated one. Comparing and prioritizing the different factors of two colleges is important. In the end, you must have a list of your preference of colleges. This should be done before the cut-offs are out as you may not have enough time to think it through in the middle of the cut-offs. To keep the list as accurate as possible, it is important to get unbiased opinions on different colleges.

  1. Take extra care for readying your documents and stationary

Once you are sure about a college, a day prior to the admission day, you must check every document that needs to be presented, twice. Furthermore, it is important to keep with yourself, a box of handy stationary like pens, pencils, staplers, glue, erasers, etc. While you are in the process of taking the admission, there will be a lot of confusion and little time on your hands. It is important to reach the college early and have everything ready in order to avoid the chaos.


  1. Become a victim of peer pressure

It is never wise to come under the societal pressures to decide which college to take admission in. You must, furthermore, never give in to the temptation of taking admission in a college because all your friends are there. Understand that your decision must be backed with reason and vision for the future rather than temporary comforts or social reputation as a priority.

  1. Ignore extracurricular activities

Your CV will not only be defined by the course and college you choose. It will also be majorly defined by the extracurricular activities that you get involved in. Your work experience and the positions you hold during your college life reflect on your abilities. These may overlap with your classes and can affect your grade point if the college isn’t supportive. Therefore, it is important to make sure that the college you get into gives you the opportunities and supports your presence in extracurricular activities.

3. Fear the long distance

Students travel up to two hours every day to the best college they can get. That is just how the culture is at Delhi University. It is wrong to leave a better college because it is so ‘far away’. Students are able to manage traveling and even find their ‘me’ time in the metro. At last, what counts is the name of the college on your CV and not excuses of proximity.

4. Let go of a college because of its stereotypes

Every college in Delhi University has a stereotype attached to it. Some are too ‘political’, others are full of ‘unsophisticated’ women. However, the truth is you will find all kinds of people, everywhere. The type of bonds you want to create with the type of people you aspire to be will shape you as a person. You will find all types, everywhere. Therefore, if you are getting a course and a college of your choice, you must not let it go because of the stereotypes attached to it. The truth is often, very different.

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.

The long drawn admission procedure to the premier university of the country might be in for a major change as the University of Delhi (DU) is planning to drastically decrease the number of cut-off lists for admission to its three-year undergraduate courses from the academic session of 2018-19. With over 2 lakh applicants vying for 56,000 seats in as many as 64 affiliated colleges, does this mean relief from the tardy and distressing process of admission to DU?

The plan for this maneuver comes at the outset of a record number of 11 cut off lists being released over a period of 2 months in the admission process of the previous year. While the online application process started on May 22, the first cut-off came out on June 24 and the last cut-off on August 23. The session started from the July 20. Unlike most other universities across the country which start and wind up the admission process within a month of declaration of results, DU’s admission process is long, spanning over a period of two months, which witness the students shifting from one college to another with the release of each cut-off.

On conditions of anonymity, a senior member of DU Admission Committee confirmed that this strategy was being adopted so that “the prolonged process of admission is cut short”. Various stakeholders, including college Principals, are to be consulted before coming up with a model for this strategy. The official added that this year, the application process will possibly start 10-15 days earlier as compared to last year. What implication this would have on the students from different boards, considering the lack of uniformity in the dates for the declaration of results, is a question to ponder upon.

In the midst of confusion and apprehension, this strategy, however, raises a glimmer of hope for a more desirable and effective admission process. There is scope for optimism as it is speculated that decreasing the number of cut-off lists may increase the time that a student gets for taking admission, and it is also expected to decrease the overall time of the admission process. In a bid to test waters through this strategy, DU’s admission committee has convened a press-conference regarding the admission processes of undergraduates.

Students aspiring for the B. Com (Programme) course in the University of Delhi recently endured a massive shock when they were told that Shaheed Bhagat Singh Evening College (SBSEC) had mistakenly declared its cut-off for the general category as 80%. Students rushed to colleges this morning to cancel their admission and gain entry into SBSEC. However, around 10:00 am, the college revealed that there was an error and that the cut-off was actually 90%.

In response to the chaos, parents and students staged protests outside the college, demanding that the candidates be allowed to get admission in the course. Consequently, the police was called to control the masses.

Upon speaking to DU Beat, Dr. P.K. Khurana, the college’s Principal, stated that students are anyway advised to go to the college personally to see if they meet all the criteria before withdrawing their admission from other colleges. He also defended his stance by saying that “corrective action” had already been taken in the morning and that the admission procedure in evening colleges does not start before 4:00 pm, meaning that students should have checked the revised cut-off in the morning before rushing to college.

The college announced in the evening that it would not be taking any more candidates into the course and that students should retain their seats in the colleges in which they were previously enrolled. The admission of these candidates has therefore not been cancelled.

In another case of carelessness on the part of college administrators, a 17 year old champion cricketer Ajay Guliya was denied admission into the college of his choice due to carelessness of the authorities. Ajay scored 79 out of 100 in the varsity’s sports trials, which was claimed to be the highest for a left arm spinner. However, the student was shocked to know that he was not shortlisted by the top college of his choice, Shri Guru Tegh Bahadur Khalsa College, in the first merit list which was released by the college on Sunday.

The reason behind his name not being in the merit list, as given by the college authorities stated that his form was misplaced. This new came as a shock to Ajay and his family because hundreds of students compete to get into University of Delhi from across the country and the university admits about 54,000 undergraduates every year. Five percent of all college seats are reserved for students under the sports and extracurricular activities quota. Ajay was confident about his chances as he had displayed his talent as an all rounder cricketer in the Under 19 team at the national level, as well as the Under 14 and Under 16 teams from Delhi state.  He was surprised to know that students who scored lower than him were selected, in place of him. Now Ajay has been asked to wait for the second merit list, even though he has easily made the cut in the first list.

Ajay Guliya was later contacted by Anil Kalkal, the Sports Council Director, assuring him that a seat would be given to him in the second list of SGTB Khalsa College.
An official of the sports admission committee at Khalsa College admitted that the form was misplaced. On conditions on anonymity, he stated that the action was an unintentional mistake and the college has not denied him admission. They have assured him that a seat would be given in the second admission list, but he is adamant to rake the issue. It was further on added that SGTB Khalsa College holds the reputation of sending the maximum number of cricket players on the University level, hence the mistake is unintentional.

Rakesh Guliya, Ajay Guliya’s father believes that this is no way to treat a national level player who is trying to mould his future. He believes that his son’s admission process has been full of hurdles, and now Khalsa College is taking his son’s future for granted.

On Monday, Guliya finally secured admission in Hindu College. However, this incident threw light upon the faulty mechanisms of college administrations. Does this call for more transparency in the field of admissions under the sports and ECA quota?

After having delayed the start of the admissions process for postgraduate candidates more than twice, the University of Delhi is finally ready to open its registration for the same. The University offers a whopping number of 72 courses at the postgraduate level, the details of which can be found at the online portal. All candidates wishing to apply for a Masters, M.Phil, or Ph.D. degree must first register at http://admission.du.ac.in/pg2017.

Unlike the undergraduate admissions portal, the postgraduate one requires all candidates to fill out separate forms for each course they apply to, thereby also paying multiple fees for multiple courses. However, the same login details will be used for all the registration forms. Candidates applying under the SC, ST, and PwD categories must pay a non-refundable fee of INR 250 for each course, while students under all other categories are required to pay INR 500.

Apart from faculties offering interdisciplinary and professional courses, all departments have two modes of admission – merit and entrance. Students from the University of Delhi who have performed well at the undergraduate level will take up 50% of the seats. This mode of direct admission is not available to students of other universities. The other 50% of seats will be filled through entrance tests and interviews or group discussions.

The entrance exams will take place in six cities across the nation – Chennai, Delhi, Guwahati, Kolkata, Nagpur, and Varanasi. The applicant must choose one of these on the registration form, after which no changes will be made. The admit card will be made available on the online portal itself.

The reservation of seats is as per the national policy for SCs, STs, and non creamy layer OBCs. There is a reservation of 5% each for students belonging to the PwD, CW, sports, and foreign national categories.

Candidates applying to the Non-Collegiate Women’s Educational Board (NCWEB) or the School of Open Learning (SOL) can opt for the same through the common registration portal. However, the remaining procedure will be carried out by the NCWEB and SOL. Candidates applying under the sports quota must appear in the entrance test for the relevant department.

Students wishing to apply for hostel accommodation should check the individual guidelines for each residence.


Here is a run-down of the postgraduate admissions procedure:

  1. Register on the PG admission portal and update personal details.
  2. If applying under the merit category, your application will only be considered if your qualifying examination results are uploaded on the portal.If applying under the entrance category, your application will be considered even if your qualifying examination results are still awaited.
  1. The departments will declare the First Admission List, for both the merit and entrance categories, on 16 July. The allotment of seats is based on the rank of the applicant and the availability of seats in the department. The name in the admission list alone does not guarantee a seat. The admission shall be considered complete only when all the documents have been verified and the fee has been paid.
  2. Once you are selected, download the Admission Form and take a printout of the same. It will have the name of the Reporting Centre and the Place of Admission on it.
  3. If you are present at the Reporting Centre on the allotted day with your Admission Form and your original documents, including your qualifying examination marksheet, your Admission Form will be marked as Verified. You shall then proceed to the Place of Admission (the college/department/faculty) and submit your original documents. The Place of Admission will then mark your application Approved on the online portal. Finally, you are required to make the fee payment online within the prescribed time limit.If you are present at the Reporting Centre on the allotted day with your Admission Form and your original documents, but without your qualifying examination marksheet, your Admission Form will be marked as Reported. You shall then proceed to the Place of Admission (the college/department/faculty) and submit your original documents. The Place of Admission will then mark your application Reported on the online portal. You will be allowed to submit your remaining documents within 20 days from the announcement of the Admission List. Once you do so and your online application status is changed to Approved, you must pay the fee within the prescribed time limit to gain admission.If you do not report at the prescribed time to the Reporting Centre, you will not be considered in the subsequent lists for admission regardless of whether you meet all other eligibility criteria.
  1. The documents will remain with the Place of Admission throughout the admissions process. They will be returned if you wish to withdraw or cancel your admission, or appear for counselling at another institute. If you have been given the 20-day window to submit your remaining documents and fail to do so, your other documents will be returned to you.
  2. If candidates score the same marks in the entrance exam, those with the higher qualifying examination marks will be allotted the seat first.


Here is a list of all the important dates to keep in mind in the upcoming weeks:

  • June 12 – Online registration starts
  • June 22 – Online registration ends
  • July 1-6 – Entrance examinations conducted
