Every year, millions of budding youngsters get their hopes high and apply for the best colleges not only in Delhi, but all of the country. Students today have many, many options to choose from and sometimes, keeping up with all the colleges and their admission procedures can be a tedious chore in itself. The latest update in the DU admission scene is that now the date for commencement of admissions has been confirmed on May 1, 2019
Earlier, there was an update stating that the admissions for DU colleges would be postponed. Usually, the admissions begin around mid April, but this year, owing to several changes in the admission procedure, you can apply for colleges starting May 1.
This change in the date of admission process is a result of some of the major procedures that will be revamped. The academic department is gearing up for the changes and will ensure that the process is conducted in a seamless manner.
Some of the changes this year are that for ECA and sports quota admissions, the cut off list and the number of seats will no longer be linked to one another. Since admission of these students has nothing to do with the cut off lists, the authorities will begin trials for the same shortly.
A change that has been confirmed but is not directly related to the admission process, is that now, the penalty for switching streams will be 2% rather than the usual 5%. For example, if one wishes to change their stream from science to humanities, 2% of the marks will be deducted.
Also, to stay updated with the rules, regulations and procedures for admission in a DU college, you can check out the official DU website. It is regularly updated and has info on each of the colleges, how to apply and soon, even the cut off list.
As for the changes, we eagerly await the upcoming changes to see whether they actually make a difference in the admission procedure for better or for worse.
