University of Delhi has planned to conduct a round of open day. This is for the aspirants before the admissions in the colleges begin.
Earlier open days used to be conducted only at the time of the registration. But unlikely to that, the university administration has decided to conduct the event this time after October 5 as the admission process this year is entirely online and students are having a lot of doubts which need to be cleared.
Shobha Bagai, Dean of DU Admissions said that they would be having an open house before admissions begin. And also that they are planning an online webinar with an aim to help the candidates with several doubts such as calculation of cutoff percentage and other related doubts.
The Dean also stated that the Varsity might not have much time left in hand for multiple events, so this open day will be a one-time opportunity for the students to get their doubts clarified.
The first cutoff list of the University of Delhi is to be released on October 12, the varsity, and the undergraduate admissions will begin with that only.
The date for the new academic session for the new batch after admissions is scheduled to begin from November 18, 2020.
As per the Dean, an option has been initiated by the Delhi University to make the edits in their forms if any. This correction portal will be open from September 12 to 5 October 2020.
He further added that the open house will most likely be held only after the corrections are made. The open house meeting will be recorded and put on the social media so that the same can be used by other students as a guide.
An official from the department of admission shared that there are many students who have doubts regarding the concept of best-of-four subjects and how they should be calculated or if they do not have a certain subject in the best four. They can also clear their doubts about the percentage cut in several different cases.
Doubts related to the document verification will also be clarified in the open day session which will be conducted next week. After extending the period of registration process, Varsity has witnessed a shoot in the number of applications to 3,53,919 — which is the highest ever.
