Officials involved in the Delhi University admission process said that admissions to colleges in Delhi University are likely to be delayed by a few months due to the second COVID-19 wave raging across the country.
The university will wait for the majority of the education boards in the country to complete their class 12 exams before starting the Delhi University admission process, said officials. The registration process began in June last year and the first cut-off was announced in October because of the lockdown.
The session of Delhi University that generally begins in July, started in November last year.
With the COVID cases rising across the country, officials said that the Delhi University admission process is likely to get delayed. Rajeev Gupta, chairman of DU’s admission panel said that Delhi University was the biggest central university in the country, and students from all over the country apply there. A close eye was being kept by the university on how different state and national boards were planning to conduct class 12 exams. By deciding early admission dates, they cannot exclude students from Maharashtra. Therefore, one thing is sure that the Delhi University admission process will get delayed once again.
Acting Vice-Chancellor PC Joshi said that they have to take care of all the boards. There is still some uncertainty about the board exams of CBSE.
On Monday, the class 10 and 12 board exams of the Maharashtra board were postponed. In view of the spike of cases, a similar demand has been put up in other states.
For admission on 5% supernumerary seats reserved for the sports and extracurricular activities categories in each course, trials will be skipped.
