No Major Changes in DU Admission Process

New Delhi:  The University of Delhi has decided not to make major changes in the admission procedure for the upcoming academic session 2013-14. The expert committee of DU has recommended a centralized application process and on that basis, admission will be carried out for Discipline 1 (Honors) course.
Similarly to the previous year, the online application procedure will remain same as the committee has not touched upon it. The only major change that has been recommended by the committee is that SC / ST candidates will now have to choose their college and courses, like those of General and OBC category. The colleges are allowed to follow their course specific criteria and cutoffs for selecting candidates.
As per sources, the expert committee working on the admission blueprint is likely to submit its recommendation to the University by March 31, after which it will be placed before the Academic Council for the approval. The admission procedure except Bachelor of Business Studies (BBS), Bachelor of Business Economics (BBE) and Bachelor of Financial and Investment Analysis (BFIA), is expected to start from the last week of May or first week of June.
Explaining the changes for SC / ST candidates in admission procedure, Virender Bhardwaj, a member of DU expert committee said that after the application process and verification of the category certificates, candidates will be allowed to choose their favorite colleges and courses. At present, the students are allocated a college and course and if they want to change, they have to undergo the complete process once again to generate a new slip. 

Moreover, the expert committee has also recommended the distribution of the seats in BA / B Sc / B Com programmes as these courses will no longer be available in the new admission scheme. The colleges can distribute the seats in the existing programmes on the basis of faculty strength. If a college finds certain course popular in terms of faculty strength, it can start honors course in the same, Mr Bhardwaj also added.
