Offline v/s online modes of DU admission


With the admission process in Delhi University in full swing and over two lakh students already registered, both online and offline mode this time since to be doing their part. The registration began on May 28 through the online mode, while the offline mode started on June 5. For this, 8 centres have been listed from where students can collect the forms. The ones opting for online mode need to visit the official website.

Both of them vary in various degrees. While many students believe that offline mode is much more convenient owing to any support or help that they can receive. Such firsthand assistance is definitely not available online.

Also, online mode has often faced several technical glitches in the past causing depleting confidence among students. The website often crashed making it unsecure. The north eastern students have faced a specific problem as their roll numbers consist of 12 digits while the offline forms have space available for only 11 digits. This has created a need for informing such students, in particular about this glitch and has asked them to make an extra box themselves.

The offline applications have definitely proven to be time consuming than online process. Students travel from across the country and also spend considerable time in the colleges to fill the form.

The last date to register for the admission process is June 15 while, the cut-off will be announced by June 25.

DU adopts Choice based credit system


There had long been confusion regarding the adoption of the Choice Based Credit System (CBCS) which was finally removed with a formal announcement by the Delhi University of the decision to implement it starting academic session 2015-2016. Initially, there had been a number of disagreements by Abha Dev Habib, Ajay K Bhagi and court members Rajesh Gogna, Ajay Kumar and JL Gupta including stating undemocratic nature of implementation as the reason. Certain college authorities and staff also predicted its failure like the FYUP. The resolution for its implementation was, however, passed by an executive council.

According to the Government, implementing CBCS will allow seamless mobility across higher education institutions, choose multidisciplinary subjects and even let students transfer the credits earned in one institution. Choice Based Credit System will allow students to study core, elective and enhancement courses which will be marked on the basis of a grading system. This is will allow students to complete course from various institutions by just transferring credits.

This decision has not only saved the university from all the flak it received for its decisiveness, it shall also enable the colleges and students to devise a structure, syllabus and time tables accordingly.

This resolution is now subject to the directive by the University Grants Commission which had earlier pressed upon each college having its own set of guidelines to give a unique characteristic to it.

Delhi University Admission 2015-2016

The much sought after admissions for Delhi University has finally begun for the academic session 2015-2016. The process kicked off smoothly with the highest online registrations ever in the university. About 37,850 aspirants registered themselves with approximately 8800 of them having made payments already.

Unlike previous years, the online mode started much before the offline registrations that are to begin by June 5. The students are up for grabbing only 54000 seats across 61 colleges with St. Stephen’s College and Jesus and Mary College having separate admission processes.

Other things being smooth, a little glitch was faced when a mistake was found in the bulletin information on the website on the same day. This was concerning the eligibility requirements for BA(hons) Economics. Also, St. Stephen’s College, has made the sports quota forms available only through offline mode. St. Stephen’s College does not have the ECA quota this year. The open days conducted till now had not informed the students that which college has allotted sports quota seats to which sports. Due to this, students had to visit more colleges than the ones already on their agenda, just to find out if the college offers sports quota seats for their respective sports. Also, some of the overenthusiastic students reached the colleges and waited for hours even though being informed of the offline registrations to begin later on the website.
