With students gearing up for DU’s admission season, minority colleges, like Jesus and Mary and St. Stephen’s, have set aside separate admission guidelines for themselves.
“Since JMC is a minority institution, students seeking admission to the college will be required to fill pre-admission forms this year too,” said Amita Tiwari, Associate Professor, Jesus and Mary College.Unlike other colleges in Delhi University which have done away with pre-admission forms this year, JMC — like St. Stephen’s College — has decided to sell its own prospectus and forms. These forms will then decide a student’s chances to get admission in the various courses the college offers.
“JMC will soon be flagging off its admission process for all its courses. We are starting with the sale of prospectus and forms on May 30, which will continue till June 8, including Saturdays,” said Tiwari.
“We will then put up the list of the selected candidates based on the admission criteria of the college and DU guidelines,” she added. The prospectus can be purchased from the college.
For those who don’t meet the required percentage of marks for admission to a course, there is the option of applying through Extra Curricular Activities (ECA) and Sports quotas.
“Students applying through the same must have a strong background in either to be considered under the quota,” said Tiwari.
“JMC has an active debating, dramatics, choreography and western music societies, which provide students ample scope to showcase their talent for admission. For those applying through the sports quota, proficiency in any sport at state and national levels will be taken into account,” she added.
The college offers football, athletics, basketball, hockey and shot-put in terms of sporting options.
“The students applying under the sports quota can apply for any sport, based on which trials will be held to gauge their expertise in the same,” said Tiwari.
While the sports trials will be held between June 9 and 11, ECA trials will be held between June 11 and 13. Prior to this, however, the list of students shortlisted for ECA trials will be put up on the college notice board on June 10.
