first_imgColleges would be announcing cut-offs on the basis of their past experiences.Admission to Delhi University’s (DU) undergraduate courses will change drastically this year.The university – after consultation with college principals in a three hour-long meeting on Monday – has decided to discontinue the process of filling application forms for seeking admission to any of its affiliated colleges.Till last year, a DU aspirant had the option of either filling a common admission form or applying individually to colleges.”No forms will be sold by the university or the colleges. Colleges will decide on their cut-offs (qualifying marks) based on their previous years’ experience. Students will directly take admission in whichever course they qualify as per the cut-off declared,” said a senior official of the university.This idea, proposed by Vice Chancellor Dinesh Singh at Monday’s meeting, received a positive response from all present.However, students seeking admission through sports, SC/ST and ECA quota will have to submit application forms.”Students were earlier applying to all programmes irrespective of what they really wanted to study,” said Meera Ramachandran, principal of Gargi College, who was present at the meeting.By filling just one common form (which was later available in OMR format), students could apply to as many as 63 undergraduate programmes in 63 colleges.last_img
