New Delhi: The rush for admissions at the prestigious Delhi University begins today with the common pre-admission forms being made available for aspiring students both online and over the counter.

The University offers 54,000 seats in over 60 colleges spread across the capital but the spectacularly high cut off rates in recent years tend to make the students nervous.

The common pre-admission forms can be availed both online and offline from today till June 18 for General and OBC candidates, following which the students will wait for the college's announcement of cut-off lists.

The forms will be available at head post offices and at 10 colleges of the University and can be submitted back at them.

For SC/ST candidates, meanwhile, four centres have been marked to accept their registrations during this period. The aspiring candidates in the reserved category are required to register themselves at the Arts Faculty in the North and South campuses or Rajdhani College or Shyam Lal College from 9.30 AM to 2.00 PM.

The candidates in the Physically Handicapped category have also been given 15 days from June 4 to 18 to register at the office of the Dean, Students Welfare.

Before the beginning of the process, the University has already held a series of counselling sessions for students to clear their doubts and start the exercise on an informed note.

The first cut off list will be displayed by the colleges on 26 June followed by similar lists on 29 June, 3 July, 6 July and 10 July. Further lists and conversions of OBC seats, if required, will be notified later, the University said.

The 100 percent cut off percentage announced last year by SRCC had set off a major debate in the country, but University officials have sought to assure students that there were plenty of seats and colleges in the varsity.

"We always tell students that they should not be obsessed by a few colleges. They should rather go for the subjects of their choice and the college that is locationally convenient for them. All colleges of the University have same syllabi and the teachers too are of comparable calibre," said an official.
