Delhi: Putting an end to all the confusion and chaos, the Delhi University Admission Season for the academic year 2016-17 will begin officially on 1st June 2016. The DU Admissions for undergraduate level programmes have suffered a delay of over a week from the regular academic schedule followed by the university this time around. Initially, the Delhi University admissions to the academic session commencing in 2016 were to start from 25th May.
The key culprit behind the DU undergraduate admissions running behind schedule is due to the university taking the admission process completely online this year for the first time. The move has also left several DU Aspirants and their parents in a limbo, as it is yet to announce the admission policy for the upcoming academic session.
This year, nearly 54,000 undergraduate seats in a host of different academic programmes in over 60 DU colleges are up for grabs through the online registration process for DU Admission.
DU Registrar Tarun Das through an official statement has only notified that the DU Admission process for PG and entrance examination based programmes would be completed on 31st May, following this, the online registration of UG courses immediately after that on June 1. Further elaborating on the topic, Mr Das informed that admission process for UG courses would be completely online including registrations for sports, Extra Curricular Activities (ECA), Kashmiri Migrants and Defence category students.
Apart from this, all other information about admission norms for the session, which are generally announced earlier every year; have been kept under the wraps by the Delhi University. Students will be able to check this vital information only through DU admission bulletin of information on June 1 from the official website of the varsity www.du.ac.in.
Students and parents have been worried about some common concerns that are yet to be answered by the Delhi University with respect to the admission season 2016-17. The most pressing ones include:
- Concession to girl candidates by some colleges
- Formula for calculation of best four percentage
- Centralised trials for sports / ECA quota
- Number of cut-offs to be announced this year
- Centralized admission to minority institutions
On June 1, when the online information bulletin for Delhi University Admissions is issued, students will be able to get answers to all these questions and begin registration for undergraduate courses.
