DU ADMISSION 2020: UNIVERSITY RECORDS OVER 1.04 LAKH REGISTRATIONS WITHIN 2 DAYS
One of the most prestigious institutions of India, Delhi University has started his admission process of undergraduate courses. The applicants have to visit the official website of the Delhi University, du.ac.in to fill the admission form. Delhi University has decided this year to make the entire process right from registration to verification of documents online, due to the outbreak of a pandemic.
The DU admission process was started on 20 June 2020. Over 1.04 lakh candidates have registered for DU admission within 2 days. From the total registration, 25,889 candidates had enrolled on day one and 78,220 students enrolled themselves on day two. Most of the admission form has been received by undergraduate courses with 76,855 students. The registration portal will remain open for the next 15 days till 4th July.
The admission form is valid for both merit-based and entrance-based courses. After the registration process is over, the candidates (merit-based) will have to check the cut-offs to know whether they are eligible to take admission in colleges of their choice or not. Moreover, Delhi University will announce the dates for entrance tests soon, separately by the colleges. The cut-offs will be announced on the centralized admission portal admission.du.ac. Although the authorities have provisioned for five cut-offs in total, the number of cut-offs can be increased depending on the availability of vacant seats.
This will happen for the first time when University will not hold any Interviews or Group discussions for the candidates seeking admission in postgraduate courses. As per till now, the interview procedure used to hold 15 marks out of the total marking scheme. Delhi University has resorted to this conclusion in order to maintain the norms of social distancing.
No sports trial in Delhi university this year for ECA admissions. Instead, the admission will be given on the basis of the certificates which can verify the achievements of the candidates. The applicants who wish to take admission to music courses, instead of appearing for a trial they have to upload their videos which will be accessed by a panel. Admissions to ECA this year will be granted to NCC and NSS students only.
The university has decided not to deduct marks on changing streams. There is always a mark deduction on changing streams. But this year the varsity has decided to withdraw the policy of deducting 5 percent marks for students who changed their stream to apply for BA courses. Shobha Bagai clarified that The principle was based on the belief that science students score more than humanities and would put up with a major fragment of seats in BA programs which are meant for humanities students. Nonetheless, now that all inspections are going interdisciplinary, the law does not hold any ground. We also wish to make the entire admission procedure smooth. Thus, we have proposed colleges to not deduct any marks, most of the colleges have approved this.
