DU First Cut-Off Out, Admissions Begin: Key Things To Keep In Mind
The Delhi University will release first cut-off list on Friday which will initiate the admissions in the university. The university will come out with five cut-offs this year. The second, third, fourth and fifth lists will be announced on July 4, July 9, July 15 and July 20, respectively.
Few points to be kept in mind before students go to college and hunt the course:
How to proceed:-
Applicants should log in to the admission portal to choose a college and course from a list of colleges and courses they are eligible for, after
the first list is declared. After meeting the cutoff requirement, applicant proceeds to the respective colleges for admission with original copies of all requisite documents.
The principal approves the admission after the applicant presents the documents to the college for verification. The provisional admission will be given in case documents cannot be verified online.
Admitted students have to produce originals of mandatory documents within a week of the last day of undergraduate admissions for forensic verification, failing the provisional admission may be cancelled.
A link will be received by the applicants on their portal to pay the fee online. Students should pay up within 24 hours after the approval of
admission by the head of institution and save the acknowledgement slip bearing transaction ID, credit card/ debit card/ net banking details and date of transaction as a proof for future reference. The applicant is granted the provisional admission to the said college after successful payment of fees.
Documents to carry:-
The Students are required to carry a printout of the form from the admissions portal, the required supporting original documents along with their photocopies and three recent passport-size photographs.
The applicants are required to produce the following documents in original with two sets of self-attested photocopies at the time of admission — class 10 and 12 mark sheets, SC/ST/OBC/EWS/CW/KM certificate issued by the competent authority, OBC (non-creamy layer) certificate wherein the caste is in the OBC central list and EWS certificate or acknowledgement slips from competent authority certifying the applicant can claim reservation under this category
Prefer course over college:-
Candidates should prefer course over college. Even principals of many north campus colleges advised students to choose course over college and take admission wherever meets with the eligibility criterion.
It is important to take admission in preferred course as their career depends on that and
should not compromise with it. According to Manoj Khanna , the principal of Ramjas College, “The students should think their entire career is dependent on what course they choose for graduation. If they go for a college and not the course, they might end up choosing an unsuitable course for themselves”.
The students should understand that they will get a similar degree irrespective of the college they graduated from. All Delhi University colleges offer similar courses and students will get similar education everywhere. Even the degrees do not mention the name of the college students graduated from. For Delhi residents, in order to save time, efforts and energy, try to opt a college near your residence.
Options other than regular DU Colleges:-
Options such as the School of Open Learning (SOL) and Non-Collegiate Women Education Board (NCWEB) can be opted by students if not able to secure the seat in Delhi University in midst of soaring cut-offs. While the former invites the applications from all students, the is reserved for female candidates in Delhi.
SOL offers five undergraduate correspondence programmes: BA Programme, BCom, BCom (Hons), BA English (Hons) and BA Political Science (Hons). The online registration for these courses began on June 1 and would continue till July 31. Classes are likely to begin in September.
Candidates applying for these courses should keep in mind that the examinations are held in Delhi and they would attend a few classes held
on weekends. Various skill-oriented professional courses in private universities can be opted by the students where they can study human resource management, retail management, hotel management, and fashion designing among other things.
NCWEB is another option for female residents of Delhi. It has over 24,000 students studying BA, BCom and MA programme at its 26 centres. Since its classes are held on Sundays, the women’s education board allows students to pursue a degree who cannot join regular college for various reasons. The board has also been conducting sessions on many employment opportunities in order to address placement concerns.
