The long wait before admissions is drawing to a close as students will soon know if they have made it to the course and college of their choice with Delhi University declaring the first cut-off list on June 22.
Those who find their names on the list can visit the respective colleges for admission and payment of fees from June 23 to June 25.
However, students need not despair if they do not find their names on the first list as the cut-offs usually dip in the second and third lists. Though for some highly sought after courses such as B.Com (Honours), admissions for the course in a particular college may close after the first list itself.
Colleges will come out with a second list on June 26. Admission in respective colleges and fee payment for students in the second list will be from June 28 to June 30.
This will be followed by a third list on July 1. Those on the list can take admission and pay the fees from July 2 to July 5.
If some colleges still have vacant seats, there will be a fourth list too which will be declared on July 6, admissions for which will take place from July 7 to July 9.
Candidates with disabilities who have registered with DU for admission can visit the office of the Dean of Students’ Welfare on June 23 where the admission list will be put up and admission slips will be issued.
Most students have a clear idea about which college they want to enrol in and which course they wish to study. Theusual practice that students follow is that they enrol themselves in the college and course which they have made it to in the first cut-off list-as soon as they find that they have made it to the college and course of their preference in the following cut-off lists, they immediately cancel their admissions in the original college and switch to the preferred college and course.
The major part of the fees is refunded to the student.
Many though do not get their pick with regard to both college and course. While some pick the brand name of a college over course, others stick with their choice of course even if it means pursuing it in a relatively lesser known college.
