Extended Schedule of Online Registration Dates:
Many students wrote about various complications and issues they are facing while registration. Some of them include failure of the site to handle heavy traffic, because of which the website was loading very slowly. In some cases, students also complained that the university server was crashing every time they were filling the form. Some students faced problems while uploading the result as several results still haven’t been announced.
The university claims that the last date of registration is extending because of the delay in the results of CBSE class 12 exams and postponement of JEE and NEET exams. The varsity has so far received 3,26,000 registrations for undergraduate courses alone. As many as 1,29,433 applicants have registered for admission in postgraduate courses and 22,700 registrations have been received for the admission in MPhil and PhD courses.
The Secretary of Delhi University Students’ Union (DUSU), Ashish Lamba, wrote a letter to the Vice-Chancellor of University of Delhi, highlighting the above mentioned issues.
Further, few candidates from the PwD category were facing issues with the creation of certificates, which posed as a hindrance at the time of filling the registration form. Such candidates are unable to upload the disability certificates, as OPDs in most government hospitals are shut down due to the COVID19 pandemic. Some students also asked the administration whether they can upload certificates issued by private hospitals, but the varsity has not approved such certificates.
Another issue faced by candidates mainly from Jammu & Kashmir region, was regarding the Prime Minister Special Scholarship Scheme (PMSSS), whose forms had not been released by the authorities yet. Some candidates are also worried about how they were supposed to apply for admission when the forms for the scholarship hadn’t been released yet.
Considering the pandemic, there was a huge reduction in the number of candidates applying for admission. Thus, to increase those numbers, the date was extended to give applicants another opportunity to fill the form.
