Delhi University have lessened the trouble of students as well as colleges with it simple admission process this year. The university administration has taken away the responsibilities of the colleges from setting various additional eligibility criteria for courses that they offer.
Under its new admission process a uniform additional criteria will be maintained by all colleges while they enroll students from 24 June 2014 for academic session of 2014-15. Malay Neerav, joint dean of students’ welfare and media coordinator, DU confirmed the news.
Till last year colleges had the relaxation to introduce any kind of additional criteria for any of the courses. Students had to run from one college to another to search if they were capable to apply for any of their desired courses.
Some colleges admitted students in Economics courses without a Maths background, or they set an eligibility criterion in Maths as high as 60%. This year everything got a makeover and the university dragged an end to this process in consultation with the colleges. This year anyone applying for an honors course in economics will have to have the minimum qualifying marks in mathematics which will be applicable for all the other honors courses such as mathematics, statistics and non-bio science courses. Every course has been revisited and new norms are set for each.
If a student wants to pursue any subject in college and if they had studied that subject in their class 12 streams, then they will be benefited with 2% for college admissions. But if they opt for a new subject that they have not studied, then deduction of 2% will be granted. This system will bring relief to every student.
