As the students from various parts of the nation stood in the queue on the very first day of Admissions in the Delhi University affiliated colleges, Mixed reactions came from the students on the common application portal of Delhi University.
The new admission portal allows students to opt for colleges as per their preference. This process was done previously by appearing physically in the colleges. Students who travelled a long way for admissions said that the admission portal still needs some improvements, however, some students seemed satisfied with the admission portal. The Delhi University officials informed that the portal has recently incorporated the facility for payment of fees using a payment portal.
A former student of DU’s Zakir Hussain College, Shivangi Mishra remembered the tough days when a student had to physically visit the institutes and verify the documents and fee payments as there was no facility of admission portal before.
The concern raised by the students regarding the portal was mainly the crashing of the portal due to high traffic in the application session. The university did not make any comment on the issue.
One student named Esha Agarwal, who was standing in the queue outside Ramjas College expressed that she thought she would take a printout of the application form but the website is mostly slow or not responding.
Except for the admission portal, the major admission issue was the calculation of best four subjects in the portal. Students from all over India reported that they faced issue adding the subjects as a problem persisted which obstructed the portal from adding certain subjects which are accepted as per the DU eligibility criteria.
One student seeking Maitreyi College’s B.Com Honours admissions, Tanvi Mishra said that she calculated Physical and Health Education in the best four criteria but then she was informed that the course cannot be added into the calculation of Best four for DU admissions.
