The second day of the Delhi University admission process on Thursday saw more students and parents attending the Open House to get answers to their queries.

Their queries were about the admission process, the cut-off calculation, sports ECA quota and several others issues.

On Wednesday, the first day of the varsity’s online application process, more than 30,000 students registered to take admissions in undergraduate courses offered by the university.

“About 30,900 applicants registered online at the university admission portal within first six hours of the process being launched. Of the registered applicants, about 5,600 have completed their registration form, including online registration fee payment,” said Tarun Das, registrar.

This is for the first time that the university has introduced completely online admission procedure for UG admissions unlike previous years when it used to be both online and offline.

The online registration process began at 12 pm on Wednesday and will continue till June 19. Few students complained of the admission portal being slow especially from 5 pm to 6 pm but the varsity authorities maintained that they had arranged for servers keeping in mind the expected traffic on the website and the students should check after some time in case of any problems.

The first cut-off list will be announced on June 27 and unlike previous years, the varsity will release only five cut-off lists.
