Delhi University’s admission committee has criticised the sports council for not following its suggestions while conducting the sports quota trials.

“We had suggested that the sports council divide all applicants in small batches and then call them for fitness test on each day. We had suggested conducting the test in two slabs — one in morning and the other in evening. This would have made things smoother,” said AK Bhagi, a member of the admission committee.

The committee had advised the Sports Council to prepare a schedule for six sessions for three days and notify students on the website. “We had advised them to either make batches of students according to the alphabetical order or the discipline of sport they had applied for. This way, the first day would have been smoother because only a limited number of students would have come,” Bhagi said.

Day One of the centralised fitness test on Thursday for admission under sports quota was marred by chaos as hundreds of students turned up at the venue only to be turned away.

The fitness tests will continue till Saturday.
