Delhi University has extended its last date of registration for DU admission to 18th July. It is one of those universities that opened its registration process for striving undergraduate students even before the Class 12th results. CBSE and CISCE have not published the Class 12th results as yet. However, several students who had previously made up their minds to study in Delhi are now in a dilemma due to the current COVID-19 pandemic situation in Delhi.
Garima, a resident of Hazra, stated that she planned to pursue BBA or Economic Honours from Delhi University. She was going to register for DU admission 2020, but the rising number of COVID-19 patients in the capital has made her reconsider her plans. As an alternative, she is now preparing to apply to colleges in Bengaluru.
An ISC candidate has also applied to the National Law University in Delhi, Dwaipayan Mukherjee also has to reconsider his options. As a secondary option, he may choose to study sports management in Mumbai. However, his first choice is still law school in Delhi. Ratnadeep Raha of Bansdroni is also in the same situation. He had previously planned to pursue law at NLU but is reconsidering his decision. If the situation does not improve in Delhi, he has planned to opt for other colleges as well. He might even go for colleges ranking lower than NLU Delhi. He may opt for them considering the rapid increase in the number of COVID-19 patients in the capital.
Striving students are waiting for the pandemic to subside, as they want to continue their studies at Delhi University. Students who were preparing for the DU admission since last year are now in a high dilemma. Another student from Jadavpur, Shneha Chakraborty, stated that she wants to study political science at Lady Sri Ram College for Women. But, she is in two minds for DU admission because of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic situation.
Abhishek Roy, from Alipore, plans to study History at Ashoka University. He has even found a seat there. He’s aware of the exceptional quality of the Liberal arts faculty in colleges and universities in the capital. He has planned to register for the DU UG programs in Liberal arts subjects too. As of now, he is pausing to comprehend the policies involved in online classes for the first few months. The first semester is scheduled to start in September.
