The erstwhile popular 4-year B.Tech courses which are now reversed to 3-year programme as per UGC directives to Delhi University, is witnessing few takers this admissions year in the central varsity.
With B.Tech programmes of 2013 academic year reversed to 3-year B.Sc. programmes, these courses have witnessed a sharp decline in admission preferences of DU aspirants. Different colleges reported very low number of admissions this year despite the second round of admissions announced with much lower cut-off as compared to last year.
Dr. Gyantosh Kumar Jha, Principal Atma Ram Santan Dharam College (ARSD), said “Last year, we saw long queues for admissions in B.Tech Computer Science. But this year when the programme has been converted to B.Sc, only a few admissions have taken place till date.” Even though the college has lowered the cutoff of B.Sc in Computer Science Programme in second list by 6%, placing it at 94%, the course have not been able to seek as much admissions like it did last year, he told. “Till July 3, 2014 only 5 students have taken admissions for Electronics course and 7 in Computer Science programmes,” he added.
With the introduction of FYUP in 2013, courses like Computer Science, Food Technology, Electronics, Instrumentation and Psychological Sciences were branded as B.Tech programmes. However, after the recent UGC directions to Delhi University on UG programme structure, the FYUP was scrapped and all courses including the B.Tech were reversed to three year format. With this transition, the courses lost B.Tech tag, an apparent reason for weakening interest in these courses.
Another example is Maharaja Agrasen College which also reported low number of admissions so far for 46 seats in B.Sc (H) Programme in Electronics. “Last year, we had admitted 120 students for 60 seats in B.Tech Electronics programme, in the first day,” Dr. Suni Sondhi, Principal, Maharaja Agrasen College informed. He further said that interest to pursue the honours programme instead of B.Tech has dipped significantly. The students rather prefer private universities to pursue the B.Tech courses, he added.
Similarly, Acharya Narendra Dev College (ANDC) reported that the admissions in B.Sc Programmes like Electronics have shown a very poor response. “For the very first time in the history of this college, we have been forced to lower the cutoff for Electronics below that fro Physics (H) programme,” added Savithri Singh, Principal, ANDC.

Hello Anurag, Yes these three subjects are fine but you need to add one more subject in order to complete the best of four percentage. The rule is that you need one subject related to the course you are applying for, one language course(most of the students have english) and other two courses you can select as any two subjects with maximum marks.
