‘Trials’ of sports quota aspirants continue

In a bid to make admission through the sports quota transparent and hassle free, the Delhi University had, for the first time this year, announced centralised sports trials.

But the confusion reigning over the trials has defeated the whole purpose of a centralised trial.

The dissociation of teachers from the trials, citing an unfair marking scheme and the lack of information about the admission process has left students confused and uncertain about their chances of admission.

On Wednesday, the Delhi University Sports Council (DUSC) had declared marks of those students who had appeared for the centralised sports trials.

However, it did not specify any admission dates.

The list, which has been sent to all colleges by the DUSC, has left students and teachers confused.

“We don't know when we have to come over for the admissions. It's difficult to visit each college and ask about admission dates. They should have announced it in the list of eligible candidates that appeared on the website,” said a visibly-tense Vaibhavi Mishra, a DU aspirant who was present at the Kirori Mal College to enquire about the dates.

Teachers said not declaring the dates has caused a lot of anxiety and confusion among students.

“There are a lot of students coming to us to ask about admissions. The DUSC should have mentioned the last dates for the students,” said Arti Dhankar, associate professor, Department of Physical Education, Ramjas College.

DUSC has washed its hands off the matter and passed on the buck to the colleges. “We have sent the list.

Now, they should decide the dates according to their schedules. But, the admission process should be completed before July 21, when the new session begins,” said Sudarshan Pathak, coordinating director, DUSC.
