DU: off-campus colleges may relax cut-offs

Few complaints about technical glitches

The last day to secure admission under the first cut-off list ended with several on-campus colleges filling most of their seats.

However, off-campus colleges, which did not see much activity, are expected to announce a slight dip in cut-offs in the second list.

Unlike the first two days, the last day of admission under the first list saw very few complaints coming in about the university website.

Shreyanshi, an applicant, said, “I did not face any problem while filling the online form for Daulat Ram College. However, uploading documents gave me some trouble. I didn’t make it to SRCC, which was my dream college, as I was 1% short of the cut-off. I had submitted an application to the CBSE for re-evaluation but the results are not out yet. Had the result been declared sooner, I might have made it to SRCC.”

Online fee payment

Others, meanwhile, complained that they faced problems while making online fee payment.

“I paid the fee twice as I wasn’t notified about the first submission on the website,” said Jigyasa Chatterjee, who wants to pursue B.Sc. Zoology from Gargi College. She added that the extra fee was refunded.

Some others said they were unable to pick the course of their choice due to technical glitches on the website on the first and second day.

Smooth day at Gargi

Officials and faculty at Gargi College claimed to have had a smooth day on Wednesday. “Work was smooth on Wednesday, if you ignore the minor glitches on the web portal,” said Sheela Dubey, the coordinator of Commerce Department at the college.

“Even complaints about problems with online registration reduced on Wednesday compared to the first two days,” added Ms. Dubey.

Documents not returned

There were, however, complaints about colleges not returning original documents after verification.

Priya, an aspirant from Lucknow, said, “The college asked for original documents for verification. But they are not giving a clear answer about when these documents will be returned.”

Her father added, “Priya has a counselling session to attend at Lucknow University on Friday. We have to leave on Wednesday night, but we still don’t have the original documents.”
