The admission process will for Delhi University is set to begin from October 12.
As a one-time preventive measure, the entire admission process will be conducted online. This situation has arisen due to the COVID-19 ensued pandemic situation.
“A meeting was held with the admission committee of the university where we offered our support to the committee,” said Akshat Dahiya, the President of Delhi University Students’ Union (DUSU). An admissions cell has been formed of student volunteers who will assist in the undergraduate admission process alongside administration.
The student volunteers will have to undergo a mock training session before becoming an active member in the admission cell. The training session of the volunteers has already begun and a mock trial will be conducted for the volunteers on Friday and Saturday. In the training session the students will be guided on how to assist not only aspiring students but members of the admission committee as well.
Moreover, phone numbers and personal email-IDs of all student volunteers will be uploaded on the Delhi University’s website- du.ac.in. Students can directly submit their queries to the cell volunteers if they find themselves stuck somewhere in the process. Meanwhile, DUSU has also formally made a request to the administration to extend the last date of uploading mark-sheets and other admissions related documents. To ensure a flawless process, students’ union has also asked the authorities to conduct a proper webinar in which all types of queries could be answered.
