Students’ wait for Delhi University’s first cut-off got over on Friday but the first day of the admission process was quite a slow affair. Not many students turned up on the first day of the admission process and out of those who did, there were many who could not confirm their seat even after meeting all the eligibility criteria due to delay in getting the printout of the college form.
Venkat Kumar, the admission convener of Sri Venkateswara College said, “There were problems in the portal till evening, due to which students had to face problems”.
Those applicants who have come from other cities are planning to extend their stay as their admission process could not be completed on the first day. Many applications could not be approved as the online link which needed principal’s approval was not working.
As per a report in Hindustan Time, Bindu Patnana who hails from Chhattisgarh came in the morning for the admission but could not manage to confirm her seat in the college. She wants to study BA (Hon) History from Sri Venkateswara College. Bindu said, “I will now have to extend my stay in Delhi for two more days to get admission on Tuesday”.
Even after the drop in the cut-offs from last year, not many students came on the first day of the admission process. Out of the total number of 624 seats, only 100 could be filed at Shri Ram College of Commerce till the evening. The situation was similar in other colleges too, there were only 86 students who got admitted to Miranda House on the first day, with 15 of them opting for the BA Programme. Kirori Mal College admitted only about 147 students against the 1,350 seats.
