There is a huge rush of students and parents braving the scorching sun to secure admission in courses and colleges of their choice.

Sonal Singh, seeking admission in Maths (Hons), says: “The faculty was quite helpful at every juncture.”

Filling the OMR forms has always been a puzzle. Says Ajay Malhotra: “The forms are slightly confusing in the beginning, but once you get the hang of it, it’s easy to fill."

Several students could be seen asking for help from student counsellors. Many preferred to take the forms home. Students had few problems with the OMR form, with most queries confined to the pin code clause.

Says Dean of Students’ Welfare S.K. Vij: “For the first time, we have added the column on pin code, which students, especially outstation ones, found a little bit confusing. The queries were on which pin code to write, of their home or temporary address. We told them to put in the pin code of contact address.”

In spite of these teething troubles, Delhi University is always popular among students.
