ECA trials at DU begin today

Over 17,000 students have applied under Extra Curricular Activity quota

Over 17,000 students who have applied to undergraduate programmes at Delhi University (DU) under the Extra Curricular Activity (ECA) quota will face the first phase of a two-phase ECA trial from June 14.

The university has uploaded details of what students need to be ready for and the guidelines on the admission portal.

Students who qualify in the ECA trial will not be given more than 15% concession/relaxation in academic merit for the last relevant cut-off list. They will also have to fulfil the minimum eligibility criteria of the programme. There are up to 5% seats reserved by every college for ECA admissions.

In the first phase of the trial, students will not be required to submit any certificates but will have to carry a printout of their DU registration form. Students who have not registered themselves for ECA trials will not be allowed to perform.

Students have been asked to upload one “best certificate” while filling the application form. This certificate will only be verified if they qualify in the final trial.

Weightage

“Weightage of 75:25 will be given to trials and certificates respectively,” said the university.

The applicant must secure at least 50% marks in the final trials (38 marks out of 75) to be eligible for the final list of selected candidates.

The university said that more weightage is being given to the performance trial instead of marks for certificate so that they will be able to judge the students knowledge and skill level instead of relying on certificates.
