The changes in the admission process have sparked excitement and disappointment among the student community.
Students are all the more confused after the announcement of Delhi University to launch an online common seat allocation mechanism. It will deploy the portal in the first week of September. The window will be open for three weeks for registration.
The University has issued a notification which explains the admission process. The admission process will consist of three phases. In the first phase, the students will submit the application form for their choice of subjects.
After the CUET results, phase two will begin. The candidate will be given the option to select the program in which they wish to secure admission. The candidate must confirm the program-specific merit score.
In the third phase, the candidate will be chosen for the program they have registered for through a merit list. If more than one candidate has the same CUET score, then the marks scored in Class 12 will be considered.
The marks of the best three subjects will be considered. Similarly, the University will consider marks for the best four and five subjects. If the issue persists, the University will allot seat to the older candidate. The University will completely deal with the admission portal.
Delhi University welcomes students every year through a merit system based on Class 12 marks. This year, the University will welcome students through the entrance exam. This has given a level playing field to the students.
The exam encountered technical glitches throughout the debut session. Many students complained that they left the exam due to last-minute changes in the exam centres. Students also faced the problem of submitting their answer sheets and other technical difficulties.
Students and parents stated that the last-minute confusion was due to the NTA\’s notification regarding the change in exam locations. However, students claim that the notification did not mention the relocation of the centre.
Students move to SOL, IGNOU
Some parents plan to send their children to the School of Open Learning as they could not take CUET. Due to the uncertainty in admissions and the importance to save the academic year, students are ready to take admission to the SOL. This system has impacted the future of students who aspire for an affordable education at the best university.
