PG admissions


The fervour for postgraduate admissions under the University of Delhi is all set to hit full swing, with the varsity announcing the admissions schedule and process on its technical-snag prone website.

Under PG admissions, 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 timeline for the admission process dates July 17th-19th for the release of the first admission list and the subsequent steps to secure a seat in the desired college. Entrance for a plethora of courses was conducted in the first week of July; with reports of an assortment of cheating tactics surfacing across different colleges. The varsity announced the results for these entrances over the last two days.

The schedule for admissions, as well as the list of documents required at the Reporting Centres, are as follows:

Here’s a rundown of the admissions process of the applicants:

  1. All the registered applicants should have successfully updated the details of their qualifying exams on the portals (which were reopened till July 14th).
  2. For the ‘merit category,’ it is mandatory for the candidates to upload the aforementioned marks on the portal to be considered for inclusion in the Admissions List. For the ‘entrance category,’ there is no such clause.
  3. Departments who announce the results will declare the First Admissions List on their websites on July 17th, 2017. The list will be comprehensive in terms of both the mode of admissions and for all categories. The allotment of the applicants has been calculated on the basis of the rank and availability of seats in the desired college. The applicant will have to visit the college to verify the documents and pay the fees to complete the admissions process.
  4. Having met the allotment list, the applicants is required to log on to the PG portal, and download and fill the Admission Form. The Form will distinctly mention the Reporting Centre (where the applicant will report) and the Place of Admission (where the applicant will be admitted).
  5. The applicant can then proceed to the Reporting Centre with the Admission Form and the required documents for the verification process. The applicant will then be marked ‘verified’ or ‘reported’ depending on whether he/she has the mark-sheet of the qualifying examination; with the former category possessing the said document. These applicants will then move to the Place of Admission for allotting the original documents, and certificates will be retained at these colleges.
  6. The applicants can then log on to their portals to make the online fee payment within the stipulated period, which would watermark their admission in a particular college.

As the new session inches closer and the admission procedure is about to begin, University of Delhi has introduced a few changes in the admission procedure for Post Graduate courses. The University will be opening five new admission centres outside Delhi for the convenience of outstation candidates. These centres will be conducting entrance exams and will be set up in Jammu, Ahmedabad, Varanasi, Kolkata, and Nagpur.

The Admission process, along with submission of fees will also be conducted online, on the suggestion of an 18 member committee that formulates rules for Post Graduate admissions. The suggestions will be sent to the Vice Chancellor for approval.
DU has reserved 50% of the seats for direct admissions when the aspirants have graduated from DU. The remaining 50% seats will be filled through entrance tests and interviews.

The University will also be giving a cutoff relaxation to OBC aspirants. The cutoff will be upto 10% lower than the cutoff for students from the General category. It is also likely that the subjective entrance tests will be replaced by objective tests. The committee is thinking about replacing the subjective tests with multiple choice questions. This is to ensure transparency in the evaluation of these tests. 

The admission process is expected to begin towards the end of April and the registrations will be winded up by mid May. The Entrance tests will be held in the beginning of June.

report published in the Times of India (TOI), students will be able to get their master’s degree based on a new credit based system. This move is expected to give more flexibility to students while picking a suitable course for themselves. DU Vice Chancellor Dinesh Singh stated that few reforms will be seen effective from the approaching session itself, whereas the full set of changes will be brought and visible from 2015-16 onward. He added that the work on the PG course reforms and proposal was going on and that he may like to call it a credit based system. Students will not only have to pass in the examinations, but also may have to attain a certain minimum number of credits to clear the examination. “The expectation is that a DU student will be able to gain the credits in about a year’s time”, he was quoted saying to TOI. Singh also hinted at some changes at the FYUP level. Trans-disciplinary programmes will enable students to gain extra points during the last year of their undergraduate course, the benefits of which can be availed at the postgraduate level. He explained that re-mixing of courses would bring about more flexibility to the system and enable students to reach their higher potential. However, the basic format of the FYUP, especially the foundation courses will not be altered. Projects might be merged and more changes will be announced which will hopefully be approved by regulatory bodies. Project areas like population and internet  have been identified. The complete information is expected to be declared soon. However, this proposal for a one year PG reforms is yet to be approved by the University’s Academic and Executive Councils. Talking about the success of the FYUP, Singh admitted that there was positive feedback from the economically and socially disadvantaged strata. Girls who get married during their college years and as a result ended up wasting their studies, are now given a chance to complete their studies in the given time period of 10-years. “Trans-disciplinary knowledge has definitely gone up tremendously,” he added.]]>
