In order to prevent the admission chaos which Delhi University witnessed last year, the university might restrict the students' applications to 10 colleges and six courses. Furthermore, the university is even planning to prevent the from switching from one college to another. If sources are to be believed, students can change their college only once, if new plans get implemented.
The university has come up with these new plans in order to curb down the admission mishap, which is a common story every year. The university's administration officials said that the university will not allow colleges to enroll students beyond the sanctioned strength.
The committee which was set up by the Delhi University last year, for improving the admission process, has come up with these ideas. One of the committee members opined on these new plans, he says "The committee has also recommended that the students coming in from other streams should have 2% higher cut-off".
The scene was totally different last year. Any candidate whose scores were higher than the cut-off list of any affiliated colleges, could easily get admission into that particular college. The students used to play this like a safe game, securing at least one seat in a college. And when their favourite colleges used to announce their cut-off lists, they used to switch over to them (if their scores are higher than that of the cut-off list), leaving the previous seat vacant. This time the Delhi University might turn the tables around with its new admission plans.
"The proposed changes will be considered by the university administration soon. Although online and offline centralised application process will continue, the proposal is to limit the number of applications and change in colleges. This will shorten the admission process. In the last two years, there were 10 cutoff lists for general candidates", says South Delhi College Principal, who was in the committee.
