The online admission process for the Delhi University's undergraduate courses kick started yesterday, 1st June and the number of applicants highlighted the fact that the country's premier University hasn't lost its sheen among the students.
As many as 39,000 applied on the very first day for the 60,000 seats on offer at the DU.
An official from the University was quoted saying, "39,000 candidates have registered on day 1 and 5,600 have completed the process including fee payment,"
While admission process in the previous years was both online and offline, this is the first time ever that the University has opted for a completely online process, thus saving the candidates from coming to the national capital from all parts of the country.
The process that began at 12 in the noon yesterday would go on till 19th June. There were a few complaints from the students about the portal running slow between 5 and 6 pm but the University managed to buff up its servers in time to ensure that the portal is running fine again. The DU has issued a directive asking the students to check the portal after a short while in case they are facing certain low speed issues at the first instance.
The first cut off list for all the colleges and courses would be declared on 27th June. Also, in a change of trend as compared to the last year, the University would only come out with 5 cut offs this year.
