The OMR admission form will allow students to apply for the maximum of 54 courses across 77 colleges of Delhi University. The option of selecting a college by the students has been removed from both online and offline admission forms, w.e.f the present academic year. Delhi University has also developed an Android based application- DU UG Admission 2014-2015, to help and guide students about the  DU admission process and online registration process.

Students aspiring for Jesus and Mary College and St. Stephen’s have to apply separately by visiting the campus, as they are not part of the centralized admission process of Delhi University.

DU Website Crash

On the first day June 2, 2014, of its admission process, the Delhi University Website crashed, leaving students disappointed regarding the online application form procedure. Colleges too went chaotic in handling the student rush.

Despite the Delhi University efforts for making the admission process simple for students , its initiative of filling the centralized admission form online was not executed well. Many students were left complaining about the crash in the official website of DU, which made them unable to apply online and rather visit the centers for sale and receipt of admission forms.

 

Amit, an UG aspirant for Philosophy said, “When I started with the online registration for admission into Delhi University at around 9:10a.m, the website at first was very slow and later crashed. I waited for an hour for the website to recover but in the end had to visit the North campus center to buy the application form and apply for my courses.” Due to the website crash, large number of student turnout was reported at various centers for purchasing the admission forms and applying for their preferred courses.

Among many other colleges, Daulat Ram College was chaotic in terms of students along with their parents rushing to the application window for buying the centralized OMR admission form.

Shruti, an applicant at Dualat Ram said, “It's so much rush here, everything is a chaos and it’s been an hour that we are standing in the sun, but can’t find any space near to the window”. In accordance with the students’ reaction and situations, Daulat Ram officials have planned to setup a ‘Shamiyana’ and a provision of another form window so that students in the queue can save themselves from the sun and chaos.

Few centers witnessed manageable crowd

Few of the centers witnessed a planned and uniform number of students on the first day of the DU UG Admissions.

Compared to Daulat Ram College situations, few other colleges witnessed a manageable amount of students. Indraprastha College for Women’s on its first day of DU UG Admission Procedure, observed a decent crowd of girl students for offline application process.

Sanskriti, a DU aspirant said, “Visiting the campus is important as general queries regarding the form, course and college are cleared.” Whereas, some of the students preferred online procedure for filling up the OMR admission form, but visited the IP College just to accompany their friends.

We asked students present at the IP College about their preference in between online and offline admission form. Rajni, a psychology aspirant said, “I prefer online procedure as it save us from the heat and long waiting queues. But I am here with my friends to have general insights about the campus and the course”.

 

The first day of the DU UG Admissions 2014-2015 left students stranded due to chaos at the centers, website getting crashed and long waiting queue.

The Delhi University will release its first cut-off list on June 24, 2014, giving students three days to complete the enrollment process. The university is also likely to release 10 cut-off lists until July 21, depending on the admission and seats availability.
