The administration of the University of Delhi, is looking at various possible approaches to further simplify the process of admission, after receiving a plethora of suggestions from parents, teachers and from students all across the country.
According to Times Of India, the chairman of the 2019 admission committee and the dean of student’s welfare mentioned that some of the suggestions as received through the online survey, may be taken into consideration by the university’s admission committee.
Over a period of last one month, the online portal of university is flooded with the suggestions and views of different related parties on the admission mechanism. Some of the notable suggestions include, that the University should provide a disclaimer in the online form for provisional admission against forgery and unfair means. Some suggested the admission committee to consider both the means, the merit based and the entranced based means of admission. The teachers who are for sure overburdened throughout the admission process, suggested that students should be allowed to change their courses and the college only three times to avoid unnecessary cancellation and re-admission process. Among this plethora of suggestions, many were of the same view that the university should provide at least three days for the admission after the announcement and the release of the cut-off list. The concern was pointed out mostly by the non-Delhi residents who find the time period provided not enough to secure seats and to take decisions regarding admission.
Some demanded the centralized admission procedure for SC, ST and OBC students to save time. The special drives that are run by the university after the release of the main cut-offs lists, are asked to be removed. A senior member of the admissions committee stated that the committee has decided that a special drive will start after the third cut off list itself and it will not be delayed until the end of admissions procedure after the sixth cut off list.
However, the Admission Committee is not sure whether it will take into consideration, the one-to-one counselling for students who are confused about the course they want to pursue and the college that they re willing to join. The university has found out an alternate solution in the form of group counselling containing more sessions and bringing together parents and students having similar doubts.
