DU Admissions 2022: Registrar Vikas Gupta said that university authorities will hold one webinar every day but also asked colleges toconduct their own open sessions at the college level to help address all the queries of students.
Delhi University will be hosting a series of webinars next week to help students with the process of registering for undergraduate admissions, including how to list their college preferences.
Registrar Vikas Gupta said that one webinar will be conducted each day by university authorities but added that colleges should also hold open sessions at the college level to further help address student queries.
On Friday, Haneet Gandhi and Vikas Gupta from Dean Admissions explained the new admissions procedures to all colleges. In the past, colleges played a more active role in admissions as each college would set their own cut-offs for various programs. Now, colleges only have the power to accept or reject applications after checking the candidate’s documents. The university will allocate seats based on the centralised merit lists, which will be prepared using students’ CUET scores and preferences for programme and college.
The university authorities have emphasised that this year, DU will not admit any candidates to any programme based on undertakings in place of requisite certificates, such as EWS or caste certificates.
“This year, we are not going to give any admissions on the basis of undertakings because we can’t waste a seat if the candidate turns out to be ineligible later. This is a very timebound system which has to move quickly,” said HaneetGandhi.
Vikas Gupta said that the university is working on developing a “simulated list” for students to understand where they stand so they can make an informed selection of programme-college combinations. “Once candidates fill up all their preferences, we will try to take out a simulated list with which candidates can see what their situation is, what is their rank in their category, Once they see that, there will be a window for them to make changes to their preferences. Once that closes, we will release the final merit lists,” said Vikas Gupta.
