Those applying for admissions to the Bachelor's with honours course in management studies - which is turning out to be the most sought-after programme this year - are faced with a unique problem.

The problem stems from the Delhi University decision to make the admission process for this programme wholly online and separate it from that for other courses.

A section of applicants have complained that they have been unable to upload digital copies of their signatures and photographs to the application web page. Without these, the form is rejected automatically.

The application procedure started on May 21 and thousands of students have already registered. The last date of submitting application is Monday.

"I managed to upload my photograph and signature only after several attempts despite them being in the correct format. I called the varsity help desk after a number of unsuccessful attempts. They were of help but the whole process was time consuming," said Arushi Govil, an aspirant.

Other applicants ended up going to the DU campus to seek a solution to their problem.

"I have been trying to upload the documents for a week now. I finally decided to come here to solve my problem," said Kartik Aggarwal, another aspirant.

The Faculty of Management Studies, which is handling the admission process for the course, has offered to complete the process for those students who are facing this problem.

Applicants can attach the two specified documents in an email and send it to

The Faculty of Management Studies will be steering the course, which will be offered in six colleges. The entrance exam for admissions to this course will be held on June 26 in Delhi, Ahmedabad, Allahabad, Chandigarh, Hyderabad and Kolkata. The application forms are available on
