DU fitness test leaves candidates disappointed

Delhi University (DU) fitness test has left many deserving candidates disappointed as they had to leave the ground even before they could participate in competitive trials on June 21, 2012. The trials concluded smoothly on Day 3 in all the colleges but many candidates at Indraprastha College (IP) had to leave disappointed.

Hansraj College began its trials from where it stopped on Wednesday, June 20, 2012. Maximum number of applications under ECA/sports quota was received by this college and thus it had to extend the trial timings in many cases. St Stephen’s also continued its trials after a gap of one day while trials at Janki Devi Memorial College began its trials on June 21, 2012.

The fitness test at Indraprastha College was in highlights on Thursday, June 21, 2012 where attendance was only one third of the total candidates applied as the IP trial timings clashed with some other college trial timings. Few students walked off the test after failing to pass the test. The fitness test included an endurance test of running 1000 meters in 6 minutes, jump of 1.5 meters and 50 meter sprint in 9 seconds. A candidate needs to clear the two tests.

An aggravated chess player at IP college fitness test expressed that he could not qualify the test just because he missed the 50 meter sprint by only few seconds and also it was difficult for him to run 1000 meters in 6 minutes in scorching sun. He stated that he is a chess player and not a physical sports player. Despite of being a national level certificate and experience holder he was rejected from trials. Now he is planning to attend the same test in other colleges.

Shooting and archery players at the fitness test of IP and Hansraj College also complained about such irrelevant criteria’s failing which they cannot perform in the sports field they actually had applied for.

 Though various college authorities are ready to accept the fitness test of other colleges too for their trials, none of them have done it till now quoting the admission guidelines given by the Delhi University.
