The second day of the “Open Days” counselling session at Delhi University saw maximum queries and complaints about the newly launched online process being “too technical”.

Admissions to over 60,000 seats in DU’s various undergraduate courses began yesterday and the online registration will conclude on June 19.

Every year before the admission process begins for its undergraduate courses, Delhi University conducts “Open Days”, or sessions to which students and parents are invited to get their admission-related queries addressed by DU staff.

However, while in recent years the maximum queries used to be about courses, colleges, relaxation, cut-offs and best-four percentage among others, this year the focus is only on the online process.


“The university did not announce the rules before hand, the information in the admission bulletin is just too complicated and the slow website is making it even worse,” said Shruti Juneja, an SRCC aspirant.

Another admission seeker said, “there are certain processes, you register and make payment later, chose options and then select the required subject..all these things used to be much easier when my elder brother studied at Ramjas”.

Queries about upgradation of marks, the criteria for those who are applying after a gap year, deduction in marks because of stream change, choice of academics and electives, were among few other queries raised during a packed session.

The sessions will be held in two batches from 10 AM to 1 PM and 4-7 PM from June 1 to 4 at the University’s conference centre. The venue for the same on June 6 will be SGTB Khalsa College followed by Sri Venketeshwara College next day.

On June 8-9, open days will be held at Zakir Hussain College and at South Campus on June 10-11.

The first cut-off list will be announced on June 27 and the varsity will release only five cut-off lists.
