Delhi University’s first Open Day saw around 300 students and parents waiting eagerly to get their questions regarding admission to the varsity answered.
Questions about this year’s admission process and centralised forms were also asked.
With the CBSE Class 12 results expected on Monday and the DU application process starting the following week, students were anxious to know about the colleges and the courses.
The questions were answered by Hansraj College principal VK Kwatra and SGBT Khalsa College principal Jaswinder Singh.
Most questions were about migration from one college to another and changing your college in subsequent cut-off lists.
“I am very nervous about my marks and DU’s cut-offs. I was wondering if I could change my college after the second cut-off list is announced,” said Samina Hoon, a DU aspirant.
Students are allowed to change the college after subsequent cut-off lists are declared.
Those who had come from out of town were happy with the process.
“I was very worried about how and where my daughter would study but the professors and principals have cleared all my doubts. We got to know everything about the application process and the courses and colleges too,” said Meena Khanna, who had come to Delhi from Chandigarh with her daughter.
The Open Day also had a presentation prepared by trained student counsellors on the university, application and admission process.
