A special drive will be conducted after the fifth cutoff. Provision has been made in the special cutoff and campaign that no movement of students (change of courses and colleges) will be allowed in these.
This time a total of five cutoffs are to be drawn for admission to DU. After three cutoffs, a special cutoff will come. A special drive will be conducted after the fifth cutoff. Provision has been made in the special cutoff and campaign that no movement of students (change of courses and colleges) will be allowed in these.
Students who have secured admission in any of the earlier three cut-offs will not be allowed to participate in the special cut-offs. Only those students who will be deprived of admission will be given a chance in this so that more and more students can become eligible for admission. Every year students change colleges and courses in each cutoff.
This does not lead to stability in admissions. In this case, the admission process also gets lengthy. At the same time, during the special drive in a college, the number of applicants is more than the available seats, then the college will prepare the merit list according to the course. In this merit, colleges will sanction the candidature only on the basis of merit and availability of seats.
Students who missed the examination
Only NTA will see whether students can be given relief or not. On Monday, the students could not reach the centers built around the Delhi border due to the blockade of the metro rail service and jam, some students had reached late.
DU Dean Student Welfare and Admission Committee Chairman Prof Rajeev Gupta said that NTA has been apprised of the problems of the students. Since the exam conducting agency is NTA, it will take the decision regarding relief. It is the effort of the DU administration that no student should be harmed. Only NTA will see how many students have been affected by the bandh. The agency will make a decision on that basis.
The entrance examinations for admission to 12 professional courses at DU’s undergraduate level and all postgraduate and Ph.D. courses have started from Sunday 26 September, which will continue till October 1.
