The first major change 2012 could see is the fact that after the declaration of a cut-off list, only two days will be allotted for admission based on that cut-off list and a gap of one day after which the next cut-off is announced. Till the last year, four days were given for admissions based on each cut-off list.
To nullify this effect, the High-Powered Committee setup to review the undergraduate admission process, has suggested that colleges can come up with eight to ten cut-off lists in case they are not able to admit enough students.
Furthermore, the Committee has also suggested doing away the Migration System in which students can migrate to another college after completion of the first year. The Committee has also come up with some changes in the semester system. The proposal says that students who were not allowed to sit for the first semester exam, will have to go through the admission process again.
The committee further said that who were not allowed to sit for their exams for any number of reasons such as low attendance will not be allowed to take admission in the same class, rather they have to apply again as a fresher and take admission according to the cut-off marks put up by the varsity.
The chairman of the committee including the principal of Dyal Singh Evening College Deepak Malhotra said that, in the previous year, the college had to face a major problem of giving admissions to students more than its capacity. According to him, the main reason behind this problem was that the varsity did not issue any registration forms due to which the college authorities had to do some guessing work in order to come up with the cut-off lists.
