If you got a high score in Financial Market Management in class 12 and are banking on those marks to get into B.Com (Honours) in Delhi University, you’ll be disappointed. The subject is considered non-academic.
With an aim to address such admission-related issues, Delhi University, for the first time, organised a counseling session for school principals and teachers of the Capital on Saturday.
Principals, teachers and counselors of about 30 public schools discussed a range of admission-related queries including the subjects considered non-academic and are not considered during admission, the facilities for children with special needs and the subjects students should choose in class 11.
“Such an exercise helps bridge the gap between the schools and university and makes the transition from school to college smooth for the students,” said Meenakshi Verma, a counselor at Army Public School, Dhaula Kuan.
“Students often choose subjects that may not help them get admission to their preferred undergraduate course. Such sessions make the admission criteria clearer and help us guide the students,” she added
“It will definitely help students choose the right subjects, if they know which subject will be taken into account during admissions,” said Rajni Arora, principal, Ramjas School, Anand Parbat.
Gurpreet Singh Tuteja, Deputy Dean, Students’ Welfare, said, “This is to guide the students and make the admission process simpler. Next Saturday, we will have a session with teachers from Kendriya Vidyalayas, Delhi government schools and Rajkiya Pratibha Vikas Vidyalayas.”
The most frequently asked questions during the sessions and their answers will be put up at firstname.lastname@example.org so that those not from Delhi can also avail the help of these sessions.
