When Reema Mathur went for her Scholastic Language Aptitude Test (SLAT) on Friday at the Faculty of Social Sciences, she was in for a great surprise — the venue for her entrance was Hansraj College.
“Luckily, I arrived early at the exam venue and made it to the test on time,” she said.
Gayatri Mishra, too, faced a similar predicament. “I had applied for Hindu as my option for the CATE exam, and assumed it would be my exam centre. But the exam was being held at the Faculty of Arts,” she said.
When Hindu College held its basketball trials at the St Stephen’s grounds, quite a few students turned up at Hindu instead. “Quite often students make such mistakes,” said DN Gupta, professor, Hindu College.
“Though we had put up notifications that our grounds was taken over by the Commonwealth Games committee, and we would be holding our trials at St Stephen’s, students failed to check.
“It is clearly stated on the DU Bulletin of Information that students should check with individual colleges for sports and extracurricular activities (ECA) trials,” he said.
