Students under the disabled category are not able to get a certificate issued by government hospitals. While some students who want to get admission for music courses are not able to upload the video on YouTube.
Delhi University is moving ahead towards the next academic session. As the admission portal is already open and just five days are left for the admission portal to shut down. Still, students are facing many problems while filling up the admission form. There are two webinars conducted by Delhi University on 23 June and 29 June respectively to clear off some queries of DU aspirants related to the admission criteria. But, students are facing some other problems as well. Those students who are applying under the disabled category have to attach a certificate issued by the government hospital along with the admission form.
DU DO NOT ACCEPT CERTIFICATION BY PRIVATE HOSPITALS
Due to the coronavirus pandemic, OPD at most government hospitals have been shut down. Moreover, they are scared to go to the hospital nowadays due to COVID-19. That is why students under disable category are facing problems in getting a disability certificate. Some students asked whether DU accepts certification issued by the private hospitals but certificates issued by government hospitals are only acceptable. A webinar was held on Monday in which some students asked how to procure a disability certificate for admission under persons with disabled categories?
STUDENTS CAN ATTACH AN ACKNOWLEDGMENT SLIP ON THE ADMISSION PORTAL
Professor Bipin Tiwari of DU’s Equal Opportunity Cell said that students can apply for certificates online and can attach an acknowledgment slip on the admission portal. He said that students would definitely need a certificate during admission time. He further said that students should apply for the certificate online as certificates from district hospitals are allowed. Certificates issued by private hospitals are not allowed in Delhi University. They must be having some proof which they had shown during their class 12th board. The University will check whether AIIMS could help them in issuing the certificates of disabled category students.
STUDENTS APPLYING FOR MUSIC COURSE HAVE TO UPLOAD A SEVEN MINUTE VIDEO ON YOUTUBE
Students have to upload a seven-minute video on YouTube and mark it unlisted for their music course. Then the admission committee of music will shortlist students based on the video uploaded and online interviews will be taken of those students. So, students applying for music courses are not able to upload the video for admission to music courses. The dean of admission agreed to this issue and said that there were some issues on the admission portal but it has been resolved now. Students can fill up their form and share the link on the Registration form. Some students said that there are differences in the names mentioned on the OBC certificate and class 10th certificate. Shobha Bagai, dean of admission said that everybody is requested to attach their correct certificate. If there are some discrepancies, students have to attach an affidavit of correct information. It is difficult for the administration to know the correct details without any affidavit. Some queries are also pertaining to the National Institute of Open Schooling. CBSE has canceled the remaining exams of class 12th students.
NIOS WILL CONDUCT EXAMS FROM JULY 17 TO AUGUST 13
NIOS would be conducting exams from 17 July to August 13. They asked the administration whether they would miss the admission to the varsity. Bagai said that whatever decision would be taken by the University Grants Commission will be accepted and followed. The admission of students depends upon the class 12th result. When results would be out, the varsity would release the cut off list. Those students who are eligible may apply for the respective course and college. Students will face problems if results are delayed. There was 1000 registration for the second webinar and 1200 doubts are received on Facebook. Due to the coronavirus pandemic, admission procedure would be conducted online. Varsity has released the admission form on June 20 and the admission portal will be opened by July 4. 2.18 lakh students have registered for admission and 98000 students have completed the admission process by paying the fee.
