DU Admission 2011-12 Process changed

Delhi Universiy(DU) has made changes in Admission process of year 2011-12 for admission in various college of Delhi under DU. From this year, there will be no forms for applying to the various courses and colleges in Delhi University. The admission process is set to go through a sea-change from 2011-12 session as DU is doing away with the current application process. Instead colleges would be announcing cutoffs on the basis of their past experiences and students who have made the cutoff would be applying to the college of their choice. The university is likely to notify the new system within next two days while the cutoffs may be released only after June 15.
Although the process appears simple at first look, several college principles visualised further complications. They said cutoffs would now be done on guesswork and if a college didn’t guess right, it would have to take in many more students than it can accommodate. The new system is to save time and the time saved would be used to finish semester teaching in colleges. DU had received around 1.2 lakh OMR (centralised) forms last year for a total of 54,000 undergraduate seats. DU officials announced this decision to the principals of its constituent colleges in a three-hour-long meeting held on the north campus on Monday. DU vice-chancellor Dinesh Singh said after the meeting, “We are actively engaged in shortly announcing a new process for applying to colleges which has been designed to ensure greater transparency and efficiency. Students will be put through far less trouble. Our decision will be notified in a couple of days. Proposals for up gradation of laboratories and classrooms were also discussed in the meeting. Introduction of research facilities was also on the agenda.
