After a year of no application forms, Delhi University is set to bring back centralised OMR forms for the admission process that begins on June 4.
The only difference is that this year the forms can be filled out online as well.
“We made this change so that students will not be forced to travel long distances to buy and submit forms,” said JM Khurana, dean, Students’ Welfare, Delhi University.
For those who still want to submit hard copies, they can get the forms at the 12 head post offices in the city, besides the 10 Delhi University centres.
The university hopes that the new admission policy will make the admission process more student-friendly.
Hindustan Times’ Campus Calling — an initiative that helps aspirants make a choice about the college and the course they want to choose — has been helping students with the admission process.
Campus Calling is helping guide students through the new process and arm them with information about cut-offs, eligibility criteria, important dates and changes in the procedure.
Campus Calling also offers information about various colleges of the university, their unique selling points, courses they offer and about college life.
Delhi University will release the first admission cut-off list on June 26 and students will have to seek admission within three days.
Admission will not be on first-come-first-serve basis and all students who fulfil the eligibility criteria for a course in a college will get admission.
Since the syllabi of most courses will be changed under the semester system, Campus Calling also bring students information about the structure of these courses.
Only two colleges under DU — St Stephen’s College and Jesus and Mary College — will come out with their forms this year.
Admission to all other colleges and courses can be sought through centralised forms alone.
While St Stephen’s College has already started its online admission process, it will start selling over-the-counter forms from Monday.
