DU ad­mis­sion process from next week, 1st cut­off in June

The Times of India (New Delhi edition) - - TIMES CITY -

New Delhi: The reg­is­tra­tion process for un­der­grad­u­ate ad­mis­sions to Delhi Univer­sity for this aca­demic ses­sion is go­ing to start next week.

This year, there will be no sep­a­rate reg­is­tra­tion for en­trance-based un­der­grad­u­ate pro­grammes and as­pi­rants can reg­is­ter through the cen­tralised ad­mis­sion por­tal for all cour­ses. “Sin­gle-point reg­is­tra­tion will en­sure that all the data are cen­trally lo­cated and the ad­mis­sion com­mit­tee has ac­cess to them at one place”. The first cut­off is likely to come out in the sec­ond week of June.

Ear­lier, the en­trance-based un­der­grad­u­ate cour­ses usu­ally had a sep­a­rate reg­is­tra­tion process that started from the first week of April. How­ever, the change in the reg­is­tra­tion for­mat has de­layed the en­tire process by two weeks this time. Ac­cord­ing to DU of­fi­cials, the ad­mis­sion com­mit­tee took its time to en­sure the is­sues faced by as­pi­rants were re­solved. “Af­ter last year’s ex­pe­ri­ence, we are en­sur­ing that the ad­mis­sion por­tal is more stu­dent-friendly.”

As the state Board has al­ready started declar­ing re­sults, the DU ad­mis­sion com­mit­tee is also likely to start the reg­is­tra­tion process for merit-based cour­ses. “The reg­is­tra­tions for merit-based cour­ses will con­tinue till June...by then, all the ed­u­ca­tion Boards would have de­clared their re­sults. How­ever, the reg­is­tra­tion for the en­trance-based pro­grammes would get over by the third week of May. The dates for the en­trance exam are likely to be de­clared by the first week of May,” said the of­fi­cial.

A source in the DU ad­mis­sion com­mit­tee said, “The stu­dent can reg­is­ter first and can con­tact us in case she/he faces any is­sue. Since the reg­is­tra­tion pe­riod is pretty long, the as­pi­rant can wait till the is­sue is re­solved be­fore mak­ing pay­ment”. The ad­mis­sion por­tal will also al­low the com­mit­tee to track the num­ber of seats filled and with­drawals in real time.
