With the Delhi University undergraduate admissions already running behind schedule, aspirants and parents have more to worry about as the varsity is yet to come out with its admission policy for the upcoming academic session.
Every year the admissions to over 54,000 undergraduate seats in various courses across over 60 DU colleges begin days after declaration of CBSE Class XII results.
The university notifies a detailed policy at least two weeks in advance so the students have a fair idea of the admission norms to be followed for the year.
The policy notification is followed by “Open Days”-counselling sessions to give prospective applicants and their parents an idea about what awaits them.
However, the entire process seems to be in doldrums.
“The only clarity provided by the university so far is that the application process is going to be completely online for the first time. How are students going to do that? What will be the arrangements? Now that the process is not offline how will supplementary documents be submitted? I have no idea about that,” said Ruchika Bhatt, an aspirant.
Another admission seeker Kanica Tyagi said, “What subjects can I count in my best-four percentage, whether girls will get some concession, how will sports quota or extracurricular activities (ECA) admissions proceed? All these questions remain unanswered. So how are we going to straightaway apply without clarity on these points”.
