Trials to be held over six days

22.5 per cent seats for SC/ST candidates

NEW DELHI: Admissions through the sports category in DU will now follow a new format. Instead of applicants individually applying to colleges, there would be centralised sports trials.

Individuals who are experts in particular games would be judging the respective games at the sports trials. To be held over six days, there would be trials for six or seven games each day at different venues.

The university has outlined the admission procedure for all categories of students.

Counselling sessions would be held for candidates from the SCS and STs from May 28 to June 11 (10 a.m. to 1 p.m.) barring Sundays on the North and South Campus. Information regarding availability of seats, medium of instruction, subject combinations, available courses and centralised registration for admissions would be given.

SC/ST candidates should get themselves registered at one of the following centres: North Campus Arts Faculty, Office of the Deputy Dean of Students' Welfare at South campus, Rajdhani College and Shyam Lal College.

The university has reserved 22.5 per cent seats for SC/ST candidates.

The total number of seats in each course has increased by 54 per cent taking 2006-2007 as the base year. The SC and ST quota would be calculated on the basis of the enhanced number of seats. The unreserved seats would remain unchanged. The number of reserved seats for the Other Backward Classes would be arrived at by deducting the seats under the SC and ST quota and the number of unreserved seats from the total increased number of seats.

Five per cent of seats have been reserved for children/widows/wives of armed forces personnel killed or disabled in action. Candidates in this category can visit DU's New Administrative Block and Faculty of Science for centralised registration.

Up to five per cent of seats in the first year of each course in colleges would be made available to foreign students. Such students must apply to the Deputy Dean, Foreign Students.

Three per cent of seats in all courses have been reserved for persons with disabilities. Such candidates must register themselves at the office of the Dean of Students' Welfare, North Campus.
