Those students who have continued with a particular ECA quota even after receiving certificates and awards will get four extra marks for admission into the University. If there is a tie between two students, the students with higher marks in his/her best certificates will be awarded the seat.
On Saturday, these additional guidelines were issued by the University when the process for the admission under the ECA quota began. The admission under this category will be based on the best three certificates out of the five which will be uploaded by the candidates.
The Delhi University had recently decided to hold ECA admission following the intervention of artistes, a petition at Delhi High Court, and the intervention of the Vice-President of India.
Earlier, the university has decided to skip the admissions under the ECA quota because of the coronavirus pandemic. Up to 5% of seats are reserved under the ECA and Sports quota in the University.
There are marks on prizes/participation of competition, performance/published works, workshops based on certificates. Except for published work/performance, four extra marks will be given to the students for sustained activity. These marks will be given to those students who have continued with activity even after they received certificates and awards.
An additional advantage will be given to those students who have done solo performances. Four marks will be deducted for group activities.
If someone has received training in multiple activities, they will be followed the same marking scheme for each training activity and the marks will be added.
The highest level of examination passed by a student in that particular system of exams will be considered for the evaluation of examination certificates.
In case there is a candidate who secures the same total marks in ECA certificates in the same ECA category and becomes eligible for admission in the same college and in the same course, the candidate who secures the higher marks in his/her best certificates will be awarded admission.
Still, if the tie cannot be broken then an applicant with a higher percentage of marks on the qualifying examination will be given preference for admission/allotment.
