With the motive to ease the DU admission process, everything is now online for the students. This is the first time anything like this has happened. But apart from all the perks of this decision, the newly adopted admission process has got many students confused. But uploading documents online have put many applicants in a fix. From the process of uploading these documents to what documents are to be uploaded, students are confused with the online admission process.
For example, many students ended up uploading birth certificate as a proof of birth instead of uploading their class 10th marksheet.
“I have uploaded the birth certificate issued by the municipal corporation. I do not know what to do. I think I will have to fill a new form,” said Kirti Singh, an aspirant. She along with her mother attended the Open day organised by Sri Venkateswara College on Tuesday to get answers to all her queries related to this year’s admission process. Zakir Hussain College will be organising the Open house for the next two days.
The University has also made uploading of certain documents mandatory from this year. These documents include board certificate of class 10th, class 12 mark sheets, reserved category certificate and income certificate for the OBC non- creamy layer.
“I just have a class 10 mark sheet and no board certificate. I am in a fix in what to do. I am trying to find out about this certificate from my school,” said Vidhi Tiwari, a resident of south Delhi.
In case a student had made an error or uploaded any wrong document, he/ she will have to refill a new form according to the University officials.
Other point of concern for the students is the income certificate for OBC non-creamy layer (NCL). “I have the OBC certificate of 2014. I have been told a fresh certificate would require time. Will I be able to apply?,” said Pawan Shokeen of Pitampura.
According to the University this should not be a matter of concern for students.
“They can upload the OBC certificate and apply for an endorsement from the district magistrate -level which will help them get admission. Till then they can submit other proofs of income to show their income has remained unchanged,” said Gurpreet Singh Tuteja, deputy dean, students welfare.
