This year the Delhi university experienced an unusual silence at times of online admissions. The campuses which were flooded with students submitting forms, curiously roaming in the college, have a blanket of silence on it. As everything is online, no student visited the campus.
Delhi University has never witnessed such a state. More than 20 lakh students enroll here every year and student organizations pose as a helping hand. It seems like the student organizations are sitting back thinking the students don’t need their help this year. However, the reality seems the opposite.
Due to a lack of clarity, the students made many mistakes in filling the application form in the online admission process. Delhi University’s administration has looked into the matter and is working on a method to give the students a second chance. It will give students a second chance to solve technical issues or any issue.
If for example the students are not able to upload their documents but they are given in the form, the students will be allowed the admission. The students should note that they must rectify this mistake at the time of verification.
In times of uncertainty and utter confusion, students are making a lot of mistakes while filling the application form. Many students haven’t even checked the cut-off and without completing all the stages, they are applying on the portal. Without being aware of the procedure, these students are complaining to the university.
The students are advised to visit the Delhi University website to check the admission procedure and the instructions to fill the admission form. The University is requesting the interested applicants to carefully read the instructions. Directions like not applying before 10 am are listed on the website. The students will be given admission if their form is filled correctly.
Moreover, Delhi University has released its first cut-off on Saturday and kickstarted the online admissions. The admission under it will start from October 16th, 2020. The university is inviting applications for 70,000 seats of undergraduate courses. The admission to the 65 colleges will be completely online to the coronavirus pandemic.
The year witnessed a rare cut-off when Lady Shri Ram college released its 100 percent cut-off. The political science, economics, and psychology courses released 100 % cut-off.
The Delhi Teachers Association (DTA), teacher association of the Aam Aadmi Party, the student organization called CYSS, they are appointed to solve the queries related to admissions. Hansraj Suman, DTA Convenor appealed to the students to fill the form from their home only. The committee is comprised of senior and experienced members.
The students are requested to contact the following numbers for any assistance. Contact numbers are 9873898728, 9873709394, 9810119138, 9810584409.
Unlike earlier times, when the colleges were filled with welcome posters and the student organizations welcome the students will utmost enthusiasm. This year no posters are allowed at the gate of campuses. The whole process has shifted online.
Organizations like Akhil Bhartiya Vidyarthi and NSUI have issued phone numbers to assist the students and their parents. They will act as helpline numbers. NSUI has announced 6 phone numbers mentioning their leaders. ABVP on the other hand has issued 2 helpline numbers, one for each department to help the students in online admissions.
