Admission season is soon going to hit the University of Delhi!
This year the University of Delhi (DU) has decided to release the admission forms in advance to make the admission process more student-friendly.
According to the Dean of admissions at DU, Mr Pankaj Arora, “The application forms will be available in the initial weekdays of April itself.”
The previous year, the admission form got delayed by over a month as the varsity came under scrutiny. The DU admission for the previous session began on 31st May 2019 though it opened on 15th May 2019 for the 2018-19 session. Mr Arora also made a statement, “The varsity is working to make the admission process more convenient, transparent, hassle-free and objective for both parents and students.”
DU had invited suggestions from stakeholders for the improvement in the admission process. Pankaj Arora also commented, “We are still analysing the feedback got based on what is applicable and what will give more to the admission process. Various other suggestions are under review but we are yet to finalise it, and that the University is also making efforts for the single admission form but it yet has to be finalized.”
The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) has preponed its examination and evaluation process to give more time for the admission process at the University of Delhi.
State boards will also follow the same suit.
It has been recorded during the admission year 2019, a total of 2,58,388 applications were received for 64,000 undergraduate seats available at the varsity. Of the total applications received by DU, 9091 applications were reserved under the EWS quota while 7100 seats were reserved for ST, 34262 were reserved for SC and 55457 were reserved for OBC applications.
The previous year was also the first time when the National Testing Agency was attached into for conducting entrance examination for the varsity in lines of JNU.
