DU colleges begin admissions with fresh guidelines
Apratim Chatterjee, 03 Jul 2014, #DU

Delhi University Colleges began admitting students on July 1 amid cutoff for many subjects shooting over 99 %. The colleges, however, clarified that the high cutoff announced in the first list is only to avoid admissions beyond the seat limit.

Campus rush begins -

Different colleges witnessed admission rush after the first cutoff list was declared by DU colleges on June 30.

While some colleges conducted the admission process smoothly, a few others witnessed chaos and confusions on their respective admission criteria. Dr. Pratibha Jolly, Principal, Miranda House said that in the first few hours of the very first day of admissions, the college has been able to sold more than 200 admission prospectuses. “The first day of admissions is usually slow but 2014 admissions saw a lot of students getting enrolled in the colleges on the first day itself,” she added.

Fresh Admission guidelines -

The Central University also issued fresh guidelines to all its colleges after the FYUP was scrapped as per the UGC directives and UG structure was brought back into 3-year format.

Meanwhile the varsity has also issued fresh admission guidelines in which it has notified that the list of courses and the seats allotted to each course shall be same as it was in 2012-13 admission schedules.

The admission guideline also states that there shall be 8 cutoff lists as per the new admission date sheet. Moreover the central university has also asked its colleges to abide by the UGC’s guidelines on the additional eligibility criteria. The UGC had directed the DU colleges to adopt their own additional eligibility criteria as it was followed in pre-FYUP structure in 2012-13 academic year.

The registration options have also been opened for candidates who could not register before the earlier deadline of June 16. “All candidates who have not already registered will be required to fill the University Registration Form on payment of Rs. 100 (General/OBC) and Rs. 50 (SC/ST), along with the admission form, in case he/she meets the cut-off,” the DU notification said, adding, “The registration made in the college will be valid in case the candidate takes admission in another college/course in the subsequent cutoff lists.”


High Cutoff in first list -

The first cutoff list declared for a few subjects in DU colleges were over 99 percent.  The B.Sc Computer Science cutoff was as high as 100 in three colleges – Atma Ram Santan Dharam College (ARSD), Acharya Narendra Dev College (ANDC) and Shyama Prasad Mukherjee College (SPMC).

Several students after the declaration of cutoff realized that nothing but a perfect score of 100 can get them through these colleges. Payal Rohtagi, a student who wished to pursue B.Sc Computer Science from ANDC said, “I missed the shot as my best four were just 99.3%; I hope to get it in second list.” The University Colleges admitted that it was fear of admitting more than the sanctioned seats for the courses.

Savithri Singh, ANDC Principal, clarifying the 100% cutoff for the course, said that the cutoff for humanities and commerce streams should be five percent higher for courses such as B.Sc in Computer Science (H). “The decision has been made following the UGC and University guidelines on following 2012-13 admission procedure,” she further clarified.

Due to high cutoff, the DU colleges are not able to accommodate the high performers and toppers of the Class XII board exam. Sarthak Aggarwa, All India Topper of CBSE 2014, who scored overall 99.6%, could not make it for Economics in St. Stephen’s College.
