The Non-Collegiate Women's Education Board (NCWEB), after its first round of admission has managed to hold its students and witnessed lesser number of drop out this year as compared to the last year.
The board managed to achieve this, despite the announcement of two cut-off lists by Delhi University. The board officials said only one student had withdrawn her admission so far which was a surprising change compared to last year.
"We have received a number of queries on the procedure of admission withdrawal but till now, only one student has submitted her withdrawal application, which is a welcome change from the last year. Earlier, the scene was totally different and after the announcement of DU's cut-off lists, large sum of students changed their minds and withdrawal their admissions," says Aarti Saxena, Director, NCWEB.
The experts of the field believe that the major reason behind the lesser withdrawal would be the high cut-off list.
"I thought with 85% will get admission in any regular college at DU. But the cut-off list drained off my dreams, it was much higher than last year. NCWEB will give me a degree and I can pursue my other interests," says Shivani Rai, a student from Delhi.
