This year, students applying for admission at Delhi University may be allowed to add courses in their forms even after the cutoffs have been released. Earlier, students used to complain about not being able to add subjects after making the mistake of not filing enough courses. Up till now, students were not allowed to edit their forms once they submitted it.
Every year, students make requests for adding courses because while filling the form they just select one or two subjects. The students facing trouble send representations to the university for being allowed to edit their forms.
Many college principals also said this is a problem mostly with outstation students and that the recommendation has been made for them. The admissions committee will soon take a decision on it. A member of this year‚Äôs admission committee stated that the proposal has come from a few members, who are principals of colleges. According to TOI, ‚ÄúThe proposal is that students should be given an opportunity to add at least one course in their form after cutoffs are released,‚Äù
‚ÄúLast year, we saw hundreds of students demanding that they be allowed to edit their forms to add another course whose cutoff they had managed to reach. We are discussing the viability of this option.‚Äù Pankaj Garg, former admissions committee member stated, “the plan could become a reality. Even last year this proposal had come from colleges, but it was not worked on. Later, when the cutoffs started being released, we saw students asking for a chance to edit their forms. But the DU administration didn‚Äôt allow it. This year, since there is time in hand, this option should be given to students.‚Äù a committee member was quoted as saying in the TOI report.
