The board results are out and the race to mission admission has begun. Students are prepared to hit the campus on May 28, the day Delhi University begins the admission procedure.
A well-done homework will help aspirants fill in the right information to get the best possible course and college.
Hindustan Times’ special ‘Campus Calling’ programme, which aims to help students throughout the admission season, held its first counselling session in the capital on Saturday at the FICCI Auditorium.
The session turned out to be a success as students from Delhi and other neighbouring towns turned up for this informative session chaired by S.K. Vij, Dean (Admissions), DU, and other faculty members.
Anxious students had all kinds of queries, from the Common Aptitude Test for English (CATE) to ECA trails to admissions based on quotas, which were effectively answered by the panelist.
“I feel such counselling sessions are a great help to students as they are very confused at this particular time. A thorough knowledge about the colleges and courses before filling in your admission forms is very important,” said Vij.
“Also, lots of students who apply through other quotas are generally not clear about the rules and regulation. So, a session clears their doubts.”
The first session was primarily on admissions, followed by a course-specific session, where faculty members from different DU colleges briefed students on the various courses and career prospects of these courses.
“I have scored 70% in my boards and I want to apply for B.Com (Hons.) But I’m very confused, as the cut-offs are really high. But after attending the session, I got information on all other courses offered at DU,” said Leena Verma, who had come from Faridabad to attend the session. The second session of the campus calling will be on Sunday, 10.30 a.m. at DPS, Sushant Lok, and Amity School, Noida.
