NEW DELHI: The centralised trial for the extra-curricular activities (ECA) have left colleges unsure of the steps to follow after the trials.
They say they are not sure what should be done if there are more candidates than seats in a college for a particular activity.
“We have sent DU the number of seats available for each society. We still have not received any clear guidelines as to what the selection process and the subsequent admission procedure will be,” said the principal of a college who did not wish to be named.
Keval Arora, staff advisor of Players, the theatre society of Kirori Mal College, said, “This ‘one size fits all’ system is unfair to candidates with particular sets of skills. For instance, an actor who plays an instrument will not be known.”
Till last year, colleges used to conduct their own trials and select students. This year a particular college has been selected to conduct different activities.
University officials said a detailed guideline will be issued soon.
