So far, more than 1.10 thousand students have registered for undergraduate courses on the University of Delhi admission portal, which was launched on August 2, according to official data.
The registration process for approximately 70,000 places for UG courses will close on August 31. As of 7:00 PM on Thursday, 1,10,494 applicants were registered on the portal for UG courses, while 87,912 were registered for graduate courses and 12,539 for Masters and Ph.D. courses.
The Delhi university held its first virtual “open day” on Thursday, in which officials responded to students’ inquiries and asked them to be careful when filling out the form, as they would not be able to modify it at later stages.
Be careful when choosing categories. It is not necessary to complete the form at once. There is enough time to fill out the form. There is a separate tab for entrance exams, and you can choose the courses for which you are eligible.
“While choosing the ECA and Sports categories, please be careful,” said Sanjeev Singh, director, Delhi University Computer Centre.
Officials also received inquiries from students about the various boards recognized by the university.
“We recognize all the boards that are recognized by the University Grants Commission, Council of Boards of School Education in India (COBSE), and the Education Ministry. You can check whether your board is acceptable or not on the COBSE portal,” said Professor Anand Sonkar.
“In due course of time, an equivalence table will be uploaded on the website. The Equivalence Committee of the university will decide which subjects from other boards will be equivalent to which subjects in CBSE and it will help the students when they have to calculate the marks,” he added.
The faculty member also said that the online calculator on the portal will calculate theoretically and applied scores with a ratio of 70:30 in case the boards do not give scores in this ratio.
“For subjects like drawing, the ratio of theory and practice will be the reverse that is 30:70. Accordingly, it will be calculated,” he added.
