For lakhs of students around the country and world, the beginning of Delhi university admissions comes as a major respite. The registrations for undergraduate courses will start from 5 pm onwards today, even as the date for admissions stays undecided.
In a sigh of relief for students, Delhi University started admission to its undergraduate courses today. The admissions which were to start in mid or later part of April were postponed due to official glitches. The process was to start before announcement of board results so that students could fill all other categories and till the result came.
The varsity is starting the admission process at least two weeks earlier than previous years to avoid the rush and give students a good amount of time for the registration process. The last date for registration is yet to be finalized.
Different dates for postgraduation and courses requiring entrance exam
The courses which require students to pass an entrance test will start registrations on May 31. DU conducts entrance tests for courses such as Bachelor of Management Studies, BA (Hons) Business Economics, Bachelor of Business Administration (financial investment analysis) and the number of these undergraduate students goes up to 1600. Admission to PhD, MPhil and postgraduation courses will also start on May 31.
The admission process for all the courses will be online, including Sports, Extra Curricular Activities (ECA), Kashmiri Migrants, CW (Defence), and PwD categories. The students, after registering themselves on DU's admission portal, will be required to upload self-attested and scanned copies of their documents after following the instructions and then make the payment online.
DU JAT 2017
The DU admission committee members have introduced 12 new centres for conducting DU Joint Admission Test (DU-JAT) across the country for the upcoming academic session this year.
The DU JAT is conducted every year for short-listing students for admissions to undergraduate programmes at Delhi University’s affiliated institutes. DU JAT 2017 is conducted for admissions to six colleges, offering Bachelor of Management Studies (BMS), and eight other colleges which offer B.A (Hons) Business Economics and BBA (FIA) programmes.
Increasing the number of centres which stood at six, namely: Bengaluru, Nagpur, Delhi, Jammu, Varanasi and Kolkata, last year, the students will now be allowed to appear in cities like Ahmedabad, Bhopal, Bhubaneshwar, Chandigarh, NCR, Guwahati, Hyderabad, Jaipur, Mumbai, Patna, Ranchi, Thiruvananthapuram.
Admission criteria still undecided
The varsity has still not decided whether it will conduct an online entrance test for post graduate courses since the proposal got substantial back lashing from students. The Delhi university authorities will hold a standing committee meeting to finalise the admission criteria for various courses on May 16.
