Delhi University’s Non-Collegiate Women’s Education Board (NCWEB) enrolled about 450 students on the first day of admission under the first cutoff list.
The board is emerging as a popular choice among students with around 20 students having more than 93% enrolling themselves at various NCWEB centres.
The admissions under the first cutoff list started on July 1 and will end on July 4.
Anju Gupta, officiating director NCWEB, said that the centre is observing a trend in which students scoring good percentages have chosen non collegiate board over regular DU colleges.
“These students have chosen non collegiate board for their graduation studies as they wish to devote more time to pursue different professional courses. We have had around 20 students with a score of above 90%, taking admission at NCWEB,” she said.
NCWEB has two courses at the undergraduate level. BCom and BA Programme.
Both are among the most popular courses in DU according to the number of applications received. As per the university, they received about 1.4 lakh applications for BA Programme and around one lakh applications for BCom.
The total number of seats available at NCWEB is 12,200.
There are 25 NCWEB college centres in DU.
This year, for the first time, the university linked the registration process for NCWEB with the central registration form of regular colleges.
Any female candidate from Delhi was directly registered for admission to NCWEB if she opted for BA Programme or BCom.
Many women in Delhi opt for Sunday classes for their graduation from NCWEB to hone their professional skills on weekdays, a university official said.
No full-time course from another institution is allowed while a student pursues a non-collegiate degree.
Only part-time courses such as language courses among others are allowed, provided the minimum attendance criteria of non-collegiate is duly fulfilled, as per NCWEB rules.
The permissible time for completing graduation from non-collegiate board is six years and the classes for UG courses commence from August 1.
