Nervous about the admission season? Want to know more about Delhi University courses and colleges?
Just pick up the phone and dial 27662507, 27662508 or 24119832. Starting on Monday, the University's tele-counselling helplines will begin taking queries from students applying to undergraduate courses for 2009-10.
"The admission helplines will answer queries that students might have about the University, admission procedure and other questions," said SK Vij, Dean Students Welfare (DSW).
Applicants can contact the DSW office at the three numbers (mentioned above) between 10 am and 5 pm on working days, for any admission related queries. Students and parents can also email their queries to email@example.com.
"Queries will be answered by faculty members and specially trained senior students. Aspirants can get information on colleges, courses offered, cut-off list/percentage for a particular course in a college, important dates and entrance test to particular course, if any," said Vij.
The common pre-admission forms along with the information bulletin 2009-10 for Delhi University colleges will also be available from June 1 to June 15. Open Day, where parents and applicants can meet faculty and current students, will be held from May 24-31.
"The admission procedure is almost the same as last year. But, we have attempted to make SC/ST admissions more transparent this year," Vij said.
"We will be publishing a detailed booklet on the admission procedure so that SC/ST students do not face problems," he said.
There will also be an 18 per cent overall increase in the number of seats due to OBC expansion. During 2008-09 academic session, the undergraduate seats at DU went up from 35,000 to 42,000 after implementing approximately 9 per cent OBC quota.
