From this academic year, Delhi University (DU) will put an end to multiple registrations by a candidate seeking admission to an undergraduate program. Why is this sudden change by the DU? The move will help colleges to arrive at a "reasonable" cutoff, said DU officials while announcing the dates for UG admissions on Saturday.
"Once a roll number of the Class XII Board is fed into the system, the candidate will not be able to register for the second time using the same.This will put an end to the practice of multiple registrations by a candidate," said Gurpreet Singh Tuteja, deputy dean, students' welfare.
In the case of any error, while filling up the centralized online registration form, candidates can edit it till the admission process is underway.
About the registration process and dates:
- The registration process will begin on Monday and close on June 12, 2017. The first cutoff list will be released on June 20, 2017.
More On the DU Admission process:
- Barring this, the admission policy remains the same. This year, the focus will make the online platform "more user-friendly".
- Several new initiatives have been taken this year to make the admission process hassle-free. For instance, in the online application form, candidates will just have to fill their Board roll number and their marks will be automatically added to it. This is applicable to students of national Boards such as CBSE and ICSE.
- The entire procedure has been made online, including the payment of fees. The students have to furnish their bank account details at the time of filling the admission form, so that refund requests or transfer of fee on account of changes in college can be facilitated easily.
- The application will be deemed complete only when the fees has been made. Officials said no extra fees would be charged in case students apply to multiple colleges and courses.
- This year, women applicants from the NCT need not register separately for admission to the Non-Collegiate Women's Education Board (NCWEB). They need to click gender as female and area of residence as Delhi on the centralized online registration form and they will be automatically registered for admission under NCWEB.
- The first cutoff for NCWEB will be issued on June 24, 2017, and the list will be displayed on the website as well as at all the centers.
