Students hoping to get admission to Delhi University (DU) this year will not have to run around to fill multiple forms. The university's decision to do away with pre-admission forms altogether is set to change the admission process drastically.
"The university will first declare the cut-off and only then will students have to go to colleges for admission," said Dinesh Singh, Vice-Chancellor, , DU.
Singh said reservations about over admission, expressed by some college principals, have no credibility. "The hysteria over a huge number of students asking for admission in a particular course is unfounded," he said.
Meanwhile, the university's decision to do away with OMR forms has garnered positive response from most principals.
"It's going to save time and resources," said VK Srivastava, principal, Hindu College.
Meera Ramchandran, principal, Gargi College said, "It is an applicant and environment-friendly initiative."
However, not all are happy. "The cut-offs can go really high and may prevent students from getting admission," said the principal of a north campus college.
