Rush for online forms peters out

| | New Delhi

The rate of registration on the online Undergraduate (UG) admission portal of Delhi University (DU) witnessed a "decline" after the frenetic filing up of forms by more than 5000 applicants getting registered within an hour of its opening.

According to available information, only 52,513 applicants registered themselves on the UG admission portal of DU which shows that initial pace was not maintained.

Experts opined that the decline in the initial rate of registrations can be attributed to several factors that include late night hours when applicants usually avoid visiting the site for registration, initial enthusiasm to visit site soon after opening of registration portal which fades gradually among others.

Fractioned data revealed that out of total 52513 registrations, total applications for merit-based UG courses are 22510 while total applications for entrance based applications are 9341. According to data provided by DU official's total male applicants are 16793 and total female applicants are 13535 while those who have registered under other categories are only 7.

However, no soon the online UG portal got opened applicants throng the DU website for registration. However, the initial rate of registration witnessed a decline within 24 hours. The UG registration will continue till 7 June.

The online admission process of DU is being handled by a team of experts under the supervision of Deputy Dean (Students Welfare) Gurpreet Singh Tuteja who is also acting as Officer on Special Duty (OSD) Admissions. This year DU has ensured "glitch-free" online admission process by working on plugging the loopholes in online admission process.

 "Applicants are advised to exercise caution while filling their forms as after making payment no changes can be made in the form. Thus a student cannot revisit his form to include some changes in the entry made by him or her if he/ she had already made the payment. However, academic details can be filled even after the payment but a candidate cannot change the details in "academic Details" column after filling it once" said a DU official.
