For admission under ECA, candidates won’t be rejected on the basis of certificates
NEW DELHI: Those who have applied under the extracurricular activities (ECA) category at Delhi University may not be considered ineligible on the basis of the certificate. Under the sports quota, candidates with the wrong certificates were rejected.
The university will release the final guidelines and schedule for the ECA trials on July 1. For the first time, students applying under the sports and ECA categories had to fill the centralised form and upload three certificates of merit this year.
Every college of the university reserves not more than 5% under the sports and ECA categories.
The students, who had applied under the sports category, were screened on the basis of the certificates. Only those who had uploaded the appropriate certificates were eligible for the sports fitness test and trial.
As many as 4,017 people were found ineligible out of the 10,382 applicants under the sports category.
“This may not be so for the students applying under the ECA quota. Under this quota, two sets of trials are held. Students will be screened in the preliminary trial,” said a senior official of the admission committee.
Dance, choreography, vocal, instrumental, theatre, creative writing, debate, fine arts, digital media, quiz, NSS and NCC are activities under the ECA. A total of 8,273 students have applied under the category. The colleges identified by the Culture Council of University of Delhi will conduct the preliminary and final trials.
A source said the decision was taken for the ECA category as the weightage given to certificates in the category was less compared to sports.
Under the ECA, certificates get 25% weightage and trials 75%. Only the certificates of winners/participants at international, national, state, zonal and school level are considered.
However, for the sports category admission, 50 marks are allotted for the certificates.
The committee identified by the Culture Council of the university will conduct the trials. The ECA admission committee will be nominated by the staff council of the college consisting of the principal, culture committee in-charge, nominee of the culture council and at least two experts in a specific field.
The candidates will be allowed to appear at the preliminary level only once in an event. The list of the shortlisted candidates for final trials will be notified on the university and college websites.
