DU Aspirants to Choose College after Cut-off List

New Delhi: University of Delhi has cleared the confusion about the selection of college for admission 2013 by introducing a new scheme, which will give freedom to the students for selecting their choice of college after cut-off list. Earlier, aspirants had to mention their choice of college during the pre-registration process.
From now, they have to just fill the marks and indicate their choice of courses in the pre-registration form. Talking about the University's decision, Dinesh Singh, Vice Chancellor, DU, has said that the new system would help students to get admission into their favorite college rather than choosing from the pre selected one. He also said that the University has come up with this scheme to simplify the admission procedure as there is a state of confusion in student's mind with respect to this year’s admission.
As per the new scheme, every student will get opportunity to study honors courses. And for that, they will have to mark their choice of honors course (Discipline 1) during registration process. Similarly to the previous year, the University will issue the cut-off list for the colleges on the basis of Class XII marks. Students who fall in the cut-off list and fulfill the eligibility criteria for admission into a college would be able to get admission into that. Choice of colleges at DU is redundant so students will have plenty of colleges to opt for.
Under the old system, students had not options to select their choice of college after the cut-off list and they either had to get admission in their pre-selected college or left without a college. During the academic year 2011-12, the first cut-off of the University was high and admission was low. This prompted DU to revert to the centralized registration method in 2012-13 admissions.

Zubin Malhotra, a career counselor, has said that this is a new system and promises for smooth admission procedure but students need to be cautious. Before applying for the admission, read out all the instructions and guidelines prescribed by the University as a single mistakes can be costly.
