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.

In the month of September, every year for the last 4 decades, the Students Union of AIIMS organises ‘Pulse’, their annual fest that can be easily considered as one of the most magnanimous fest in India. Also called as “Annual South Asian Socio-Cultural, Literary and Sports meet”, the fest this year was held from the 16th to the 22nd September and witnessed participation from 90 colleges and around 6000 students. The fest is like a seven day carnival taking you through the vivid aspects of music, dance, literature, knowledge, drama and culture.

In Pulse 2012, from the very first day till the last, one was busy enjoying various events in the fest.  The fest definitely offered students a lot to savour on. Beginning with the P-wave – a musical drama, the first day saw a variety of events like quizzes, debates, painting competitions etc being organised at various places within the institute. Classical Night took place on the first eve where the great Sarod players, Ayaan and Amaan Ali Khan mesmerised the audience with their splendid performance. One of the best fragments of the fest was the MRC (with the DJ) which continued late into the night for all the seven days. Here the loud and sizzling music surely made even the non -dancers hit the floor.

Events like western dance, light vocal music, street plays, one act plays, girls arm wrestling, Mehndi Competition, Make a Proposal were held in the subsequent days which showcased huge amounts of talent and enthusiasm. There were many teams from DU as well. The Battle of the Bands and the fashion competition displayed emerging talent of the youth. Hogathon – another unique competition – gave an opportunity to all the gluttons to eat the maximum amount of Baskin-Robbins ice cream and drink unlimited cold drink as fast as possible and win fabulous prizes.

The most popular event was undoubtedly the pop- night where Sunidhi Chauhan rocked the stage with her magnificent performance, singing popular Bollywood numbers. The Laughter Night saw the old and the young sitting together and enjoying hilarious anecdotes and jokes by many popular TV artists. Rock Night took place on the last day where an amazing performance by Suraj Jagan made everyone run around on the beats of Bhaag-DK Bose.

All in all pulse 2012 was a rollercoaster ride for anyone who got a chance to be a part of it. It was undoubtedly a journey full of fun, drama and joy, a fest that surely enunciates life.
