The coronavirus pandemic has changed everything. In this situation, will there be any change in the DU admission this year? Let us see the changes that have been brought in the DU admission process for this year.
Dean (Admissions) Shobha Bagai said that for the first time, the entire admission process has been made online. They named this admission process as ‘contactless admission.’ This means that the students will not have to visit either the college or the department to confirm their admission.
The entire DU admission process will be online. This year, when the students are registering themselves on the admission portal, they are being registered for all the courses in all the colleges. Once the cutoff releases, the students can decide which course and what college are they eligible for according to their marks.
Bagai said that initially, they felt that students outside of Delhi might not apply, but once the registration process started and the results were announced, the number of outstation students’ applications did not change.
Last year, around 2 lakh students had done the paid registration. This year, the number has already crossed 3 lakhs. Therefore, now the University feels that they are ready to adopt a new method of admission because of the COVID-19 situation.
Devesh Tiwari, a student of DU, said that he wanted to take admission in the postgraduate course, but he is not clear because of the uncertainty around the exams.
Sandeep Singh, an MA student of DU said that the uncertainty of the beginning of a new session is also demotivating for the students. The final year exams have already been postponed thrice. This is why the students have lost interest in studies.
