Academic Session 2021-22: DU Issued Rules, Students Will Not Be Able to Change Courses and Colleges in Cutoff

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.

Expansion

Students enrolled in any cutoff in undergraduate courses in the academic session 2021-22 of Delhi University (DU) will not be able to change courses and colleges during the special cutoff and special drive. Only those students will be considered eligible for admission, who have not got admission in any of the earlier cut-offs. This arrangement has been made to bring stability in admission. If the number of applicants in the special drive is more than the number of seats, the colleges will take out a merit list and give admission.

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

in Bharat Bandh may get relief In fact, the DU administration has informed the National Testing Agency (NTA) about the problem of students who have missed the entrance examination. Now it is for NTA to decide to give relief.

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.

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.
