For the academic year 2020, DU sports quota witnessed the enrollment of many state-level and national level medalists. Hence, this observation was made in the first sports list itself. One of the candidates is an international Spokesperson. Hence, the DU officials stated that the absence of trials and easy online method attracted these students.
The procedure of DU Sports Quota Admission:
The first Sports Quota Admission list was out on 19th December 2020. Students were given time until 23rd December to take admissions against it. A new software was developed by DU for seat allotment. Hence, with the help of this software, students were allotted colleges as per their certificate marks. However, the students were given the freedom to decide their course.
Some DU affiliated colleges complained that the new portal made for the details of sports students was inaccessible. However, the DUSC denied any sort of foul play. They remarked, ”The whole procedure is carried online with zero human intervention.”
The prime reason behind the enrollment of many medalists in DU Sports Quota:
Pankaj Sinha, the Chairperson of DUSC (Delhi University Sports Council) says, “The huge number of state and national level medalists are because of the elimination of trials.” Hence, before 2020, a long and tiresome process of sports trial took place in DU. It went on for long days with multiple trials for admissions. However, this year, students have to simply submit their certificates on the online portal.
The varsity has also offered the students, freedom in selecting the course of their own choice. Hence, all this has encouraged and attracted many national level and state level sportspeople to apply in DU Sports Quota.
However, the DUSC (Delhi University Sports Council) will check the forensic details of all the documents submitted. They will also ask the students to bring the documents after reopening.
