Registration for DU admissions likely to start from May 27
New Delhi: Delhi University's online registration process for the undergraduate courses likely to start from May 27 and continue till June 9, whereas the first cut-off will be released on June 19, according to a varsity official. The university was intended to open the registration window for the undergraduate admission a bit earlier but could not make it because of some technical issues, especially to make association with the National Testing Agency for the entrance tests.
Addressing the continued grievance over the single payment gateway, and to ease out the admission fee submission process, the standing committee has taken a step to include multiple payment gateways. The varsity official also said that the aspirants can also use mobile payment applications to pay their fees. "To facilitate students and ease out the admission process, the standing committee has decided to open multiple payment gateways. This will ensure hassle free and timely completion of the admission procedure," said Dr Rasal Singh, Member, Academic Council. He elaborated further that standing committee feels that promotion and protection of Modern Indian Languages and weaker disciplines is utmost important, so several measures have taken many.
After receiving many suggestions from the concerned teachers and detailed feedback from stakeholders, the standing committee has not accepted the proposal to hold auditions and trials for BA programme ( Music) and BA programme (physical education). The DU official said that the standing committee has taken decision to stop the shifting of students from the undergraduate combination courses ( like shifting from BA political science to BA Economics). "And for changing the undergraduate course, students need to cancel their admissions from the respective curriculum, later they can jump into the combination course," he added.
Eearlier, it was observed that many students had been into a practice to first secure the admission in the DU at modern language while gaining the 10 per cent benefit and later, they jumped into the different regular courses. To stop this practice, the standing committee has taken decision, so that none of the students could jump from one course to another without cancelling their admission from the certain course. The official added that due to this practice most of the seats allotted to students under the MIL course remain empty for entire admission session.
Moreover, admission process for most UG courses will be on merit basis, the university will conduct entrance tests for courses such as BA (Hons) Business Economics, Bachelor of Management Studies, Bachelor of Business Administration (Financial Investment Analysis), B.Tech. (IT and Mathematical Innovations), Bachelor of Science in Physical Education, Health Education and Sports, BA (Hons) Multimedia and Mass Communication, the 5-year journalism program among others.
