It has been 10 days since the online application procedure of Delhi University Admissions began on June 1. Over 2 lakh applications have already been received within this short span of time.
According to the statistics as of June 8, the number of candidates registered with the university touched 2,05,710. According to university sources, the number of female and male applicants is 53,814 and 51,662 respectively. Six candidates from ‘others’ category and 533 from PwD category have also applied.
This is the first time that DU has organized the entire admission process online, starting from applying for courses to seek admission in colleges after the announcement of the cut offs. The university has even asked the aspirants to upload all the required relevant documents online and the students have to be visiting only for the confirmation of admission and verification of the documents.
Aspirants need to log into the DU portal http://www.du.ac.in/, register and fill the application form. Students can select the courses in the form but not colleges. Only after the payment will the application be accepted. Apart from filling the form students will also have to upload copy of self-attested class 10th and 12th mark sheets and reserved category certificate. The size of the file should not be more than 200 KB. Similarly, the photograph and signature should also not be more than 50 KB each.
For students who need assistance for online application, help-centers have been arranged in 24 colleges to make your work easier. Also, DU has been organizing open house sessions, uploading YouTube videos and setting up a call facility at the Dean of Students’ Welfare Office.
For those applying under the PwD (persons with disability) category, two centers, namely, Equal Opportunity Cell in North Campus and Joint Dean Students’ Welfare Office in South campus have been set up until the last day of applications.
Other Things To Follow:
Delhi University has made it easier for students to take admission in Honors (Discipline I) courses even if they have not studied the subject in school.
1. If any candidate has not studied the subject he/she is seeking admission in as honors course, then he/she would have a disadvantage of 2% in the calculated ‘best of four’.
2. If a candidate has not studied the language in school and is seeking admission in honors in that language, the student will have to bear a disadvantage of 5%. Those who have studied the functional language will have disadvantage of 2%.
3. Vocational subjects have now been included in the calculation of the aggregate. Up to 3 vocational subjects can be included but 10% marks would be deducted from each of the subject
4. 5% reservation for the sports quota has been included but unlike last year, the reservation has been extended to post graduation admissions as well. Students who have done well in the sports category can expect a confirm seat in the university.
The last date of registration is 19th of June. This year, only 5 cut off lists will be released and afterwards, colleges will follow their own admission criterion based on the availability of seats. The first list will be released on 27th of June, following which 4 more will be released on 1st, 7th, 12th and 16th of July respectively.
