80 thousand more applications than last year
There has been an increase in the number of students applying for admission under CUET in DU for the academic session 2023-24. This number has received about 80 thousand more applications than last year. In 2021, where the number of applicants in DU was 2,29,264, in 2022 this number was just 1,65,473. The number of students applied this year is 2,45,235. DU officials say that there could be many reasons behind this. Improvement in the ranking of DU colleges, high quality education and study environment can be a major reason. A major reason for the low application last year could also be the situation arising out of Corona.
Applications came in eight years
Note: Application number is in lakhs.
Transparency in admission process
Rajpal Singh, a member of the executive committee in DU and a member of the teachers’ organization of the Aam Aadmi Party, has questioned the admission process. He says that under the previous system, Delhi University used to declare college-course cut-offs, giving a clear indication of the percentage students would need for admission, but today with the introduction of the common seat allocation system, transparency has become a major concern. The topic has become Due to direct allotment process no one is able to understand how these seats are allotted. What are the criteria used for selection. Students are confused about on what basis their names are being considered for admission. The lack of transparency erodes the trust and confidence of students that was earlier in the traditional admission process.
