Day two of the open day organised by Delhi University which was held at the SP Jain Auditorium in South Campus was attended by around 1,000 students and parents. Vice-Chancellor Deepak Pental addressed the queries of the students seeking admission to the varsity. Some of the questions that were asked during the sessions were:
What is the criteria for best of four subjects?
The best of four subjects has to include one language and three best relevant subjects. For example, a student applying for Economics (H) has to have maths and accounts as his subjects in class XII. If he/she has fine arts it will not be counted as a relevant subject for this stream.
How can we know about the cut-offs for various colleges? Should we wait for the second list to come out?
The university website will provide cut-offs for various colleges and courses. It is advisable to take admission to the courses one has applied too in the first list, even if it is not in a college of one’s choice.
How does one prepare for the Common Aptitude Test for English?
There are two parts to the test, objective and subjective. The class XII marks are given 30 per cent weightage while the test carries 70 per cent weightage.
