The second day of Open Days at Delhi University North Campus was a packed house with confused students and parents wanting to clear all their queries before filling the forms online.

“I had some questions about calculating the best of four for admission to BSc. I have not yet registered because I wanted to get answers to my queries first,” said Anupam Butola, an applicant. He had come from Gopeshwar in Uttarakhand and is living with a cousin in Delhi.

Like Butola there were many students who had queries on the certificates needed for admission under the extracurricular activities (ECA) category.

“Upload the national certificate if you have one, otherwise upload whichever holds a higher value,” said Gurpreet Singh Tuteja, Deputy Dean Students Welfare.

Delhi University started the online registration and Open Days from June 1.

Some students also wanted to know if they could change their college after getting admission in a college.

“Any student can withdraw admission from a college and then take admission in another college. But you will have to give an application for admission withdrawal and your certificates will be given back. But it will take some time for the fees to be refunded to you,” said Tuteja.

However, this time unlike previous years there is no help desk with interns to help the students at the conference centre. Many such Open Days are scheduled till June 11. The last day of application is June 19.

About 30,900 applicants registered online at the University admission portal within first six hours of the launch. About 5,600 students have already completed their registration form including online registration fee payment.
