- Complete online admission process likely at Delhi university
- New criteria likely for sports, ECA and other quota categories
Delhi University (DU) has announced that there will be a delay in the admissions to the new academic year, due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Parting ways with the usual admission calendar, DU’s academic council is also reported to be contemplating changes to the eligibility criteria, admission process and matters related to online classes.
There has been no official word from the university regarding the new dates for admission. Various reports had previously speculated that the UG and PG admission process would begin on June 8th.
Admission Process to Change
Till last year, the DU aspirants were required to fill online application forms on the university website. Following the publishing of the cut off ranks, eligible students could pay the fee online. However, the document verification process has always been held offline and students were required to travel to their respective colleges to secure their seats. The COVID-19 outbreak has forced the academic council of DU to consider systemic changes to the admission process. The council is expected to recommend that the process be made completely online. Additionally, the council will also decide on the new process of admission to seats under Sports, ECA and other quota categories. These admissions were previously conducted through offline interviews and trials. Admissions procedures to Delhi University are likely to begin before the publication of the board exams results. Full-fledged admission procedures are expected to resume later this year.
