All students hoping to get into Delhi University under the extracurricular activity category will have to produce certificates, preferably from recognised national bodies, for admission.
“The certificates hold 25 marks out of 100. The remaining marks are for the trials,” said Suchitra Gupta, deputy dean, cultural affairs.
A number of students are interested in applying to colleges under the ECA quota which includes theatre, dance, music, debate and fine arts among others.
Unlike sports, however, not a lot of competitions are held in these fields at the national level.
Most of the certificates that the students have are from inter-school competitions.
“These students will not get the benefit from certificates they produce but if they are worthy, they will get good marks in the trials,” Gupta added.
