St. Stephen’s has decided to take no account of the recently released Delhi University’s notification, which concerned with the matter of centralized process of admissions under the extra- curricular activities and sports quota for the upcoming academic session.
Given the stiff competition of winning a seat in the prestigious university of the country, 5% of the total seats are reserved for the sports and ECA quota and thus holds a lot of importance for the aspiring candidates. The candidates are supposed to go through the centralized sports trials which are starting from June 24 for getting a seat under the sport they have filled in. Making it easier for the students, if a student succeeds at clearing a particular sport or ECA trial it would be approved by all other colleges as well.
As per the sources, St. Stephen’s has already conducted it first sports test on Monday before DU notification was put up which led to the chaos between the college and varsity.
However, finally the issue was put to rest by a meeting between the two which came to a conclusion that the college can hold trials independently but under the presence of a DU expert who will grade the student accordingly.
As per Prof CS Dubey, member of the admissions committee, “Officials from the university will be present at the trials that will be conducted at St. Stephen’s. But for those students who have not applied to St. Stephen’s, they will have to go through centralized trials which will be conducted by the university.”
The centralized rule has been put into practice from this year due to the prior year’s complaints of prejudice faced by the students during the evaluation process. This new rule will save students from multiple rounds of tests from this academic session.
