DU admission process to be revamped, high cut-offs may soon become history

Published On: 07 Mar 2012

 | Last Updated On: 07 Mar 2012

Last year, the DU colleges came out with cut-off lists based on Class XII board scores for reducing the burden of the students. DU authorities however claim that the burden on the students can be reduced even more by making significant changes in the DU admission procedure. For reviewing the undergraduate admission process, the university has now set up a high powered committee.

The committee of 16 members was set up in 2011 to review the DU admission procedure and make recommendations. The committee includes principals of different DU colleges such as Kamala Nehru, Miranda House, Lady Shri Ram College for Women and Shri Ram College of Commerce. The committee suggested quite a few changes. In case the changes are approved by the academic council, it may become a reality by 2013.

The following recommendations have been made by the committee:

Entrance test compulsory for all streams

The high cut-offs for admission in DU has been a controversial topic for quite some time now. The committee recommended that all admissions should be done on the basis on entrance exams. As per the committee this will give an equal chance to an average student who has scored in 70s-80s in the board exam. For the science students, students interested in pursuing biosciences will be admitted on the basis of centralized All India Pre Medical Test (AIPMT) scores and students intending to pursue physical sciences will be admitted on the basis of AIEEE (All India Engineering Entrance Examination). In addition, the committee further recommended that apart from English, journalism and BBE, which already are holding entrance exams for admission in the course, all other programs in commerce and humanities should also hold entrance tests.

Cut-Off lists to be released until all seats are filled 

In 2012, after declaration of a cut-off list only 2 days will be given for admissions based on the cut-offs. The next cut off will be announced after a gap of 1 day. Till 2011, 4 days were allotted for admission on the basis of each cut off list. The high powered committee has now suggested that colleges can come up with 8-10 cut off lists until all their seats are filled.

No migration will happen 

The committee also suggested that the whole process of students migrating from one college to another after completion of Ist year should be stopped.  

Changes in semester system  

Students who were not allowed to take the Ist semester exam due to any reason such as low attendance will have to apply again as a fresher and go through the entire admission process again.

The above mentioned recommendations will be applicable only once the academic council approves them.
