Ahead of the Tight Race for Admissions in Delhi University; Standing Committee proposed Several Substantial Changes

DU Admission 2019 | The result of Class 12th has already been announced and race for admission in the country’s most reputed University is about to begin. It is estimated that the registration process for the admission in Undergraduate and Post Graduate Courses of Delhi University will start on 24 May’19 and end on 4 June’19. This is the tentative date thrown by the standing committee of the Academic Council of DU. The first cut-off list will come out in public on 14th June, second list on June 19, third cut-off list on 24th June, fourth on June 28 and fifth list (the final one) on 3rd July’19 most probably.

This year students can expect 56,000 seats for Undergraduate Programme and 9,500 seats for Post-Graduate Programme under Non-EWS quota (Non-Economic Weaker Section) in Delhi University. The students can check the last year’s cut-off for top courses on the various websites.

Various Changes that are Expected to be implemented this Year in Delhi University:

  1. The standing committee has decided that only the sports which are listed in Asian Games, Commonwealth and Olympics would be taken into account for admission in sports quota. It means that about six games would be kicked out from sports trials.
  2. To ensure the safety of the female students and their family member living in distant locations or outside Delhi, the entrance formalities for evening classes will be done in the morning hours only.
  3. In order to maintain social equality, a relaxation of 1% could be given to the government school students and those coming from rural background. These students have enjoyed fewer facilities in comparison to modern private school students.
  4. The ‘Ward Quota’ for the children of teaching and non-teaching staffs of Delhi University would be increased. Right now, 6 seats are reserved in every college of University for ‘Ward Quota’.
  5. A suggestion in which it was stated that the entrance examinations in the colleges should be taken in both Hindi and English language, has been forwarded by the committee.
  6. A revolutionary system has been introduced in the admission process, in which if a student of the reserved category scores the marks required to meet the cut-off in successive lists, he or she will be transferred to the general category and a seat will be vacated for another deserving student from reserved category. All the reserved categories viz. SC, ST, OBC and EWS will take advantage of this formula.

At last, Wider academic committee will decide the implementation of these recommendations. If they approve, some will pass and if they decline other suggestions will not be implemented. The vice-chancellor reserves the emergency rights to convert any suggestion into implementation.
