Everyone knows about sky high ‘cut-off’ of Delhi University which is due to the popularity of few courses. But this year chances are there will be a little relief in the cut-off lists as from this year nearly 2000 more seats will be provided in the courses that are in demand.
Delhi University presently offers 54,000 seats in over 60 colleges. It is decided that 2,000 undergraduate seats in various courses will be provided from the upcoming academic session.This year, 19 colleges will begin courses that were approved by the academic and executive council last year. These 19 colleges have received the requisite proposal to start 35 new courses from this year. Now DU colleges are waiting for financial approval for funding of existing courses so that they can admit more eligible students for upcoming session.
The new courses will be introduced in certain colleges and in other colleges, seats will be increased for existing courses. Hence in total 2,000 UG seats will be added thereafter. It is also decided that 32 seats will be added in science courses and 40 seats in art courses.
Courses introduced in various colleges are:
1. Political science Honors at St. Stephen’s College
2. Mathematics Honors in Gargi College and Delhi College of Arts and Commerce
3. Bachelors in Geography (Hons) and Bachelors in Sociology (Hons) in Indraprastha College for Women. It is also decided to provide 46 seats each in both the liberal arts courses.
4. B.Sc. Forensic Science in SGTB Khalsa College
5. Computer Science, History, Psychology and Mathematics Honors in Aryabhatta College
6. In Dyal Singh College seats will be added in courses like B.A. (Hons) in Punjabi, Urdu, Sanskrit, B. Sc. (Hons) in Computer Science and B.A. (Hons) in Philosophy.
7. In Shaheed Rajguru College of applied science for women, six new courses will be offered and 248 more seats will be provided to candidates interested in courses like bachelor of science in biochemistry , microbiology, psychology, statistics(hons.), bachelor of management studies and bachelor of financial investment and analysis this year.
Bharati College, Ramanujan College and Daulat Ram College will also introduce certain courses soon.About 40,143 online registrations for merit-based courses were recorded by DU’s admission committee on Tuesday evening. In which, 8,661 registrations were for English (hons.), 8,420 registrations were for B.com programme followed by almost 7,000 registrations for B.com (hons.) making most sought after courses of the year.
This decision can prove to be really helpful for students. It raises a hope for 2000 admission seekers in Delhi University. Every year, most of students are not able to get admission in course of their choice, especially in course that remain in demand among students. This decision will really help them
