The admission process in Delhi University is on.Thousands of aspirants are waiting for the second and third cut-off lists to get a seat in DU. Amid this,there is a written suggestion by Deputy Chief Minister and Delhi Education Minister Manish Sisodia to Human Rights Development Minister Smiti Irani saying that the DU cut-offs system should be replaced by entrance tests.He referred to the cut-offs as “anomalies” to the admission process. He also asked for extra weightage for the Delhi students in the 28 colleges run by Delhi Government.

He said, “Due to anomalies in admission process of DU which is based on cut-offs, lakhs of Delhi students are suffering as applicants from state boards have more marks than them. Recently the scams behind Gujarat and Bihar toppers have also come to light and because of such practices students here are suffering,” and also that ¬†“This will ensure that students from all areas get equal opportunity of admission in DU.

He also stated that “Delhi Government is giving Rs. 300 crore annually for 28 DU colleges run by it. So at least in these colleges, Delhi students should get weightage of five percent from the current session to ensure no injustice is done to city students

This will definitely give a fairer chance to all applicants to get into DU and will prove beneficiary to the ones from Delhi.But,the question is, will the students be willing to give another exam after the class 12th boards for every course they wish to study in DU?

If these provisions are accepted,like entrances for certain courses like BBA, B.A (H) Business Economics and BMS,Delhi University will have to come up with a common entrance procedure for other courses as well.
