The Delhi University on Tuesday announced that the online registration for the admission for postgraduate, MPhil and PhD programme will start from June 7 rather than from May 31 as it was scheduled earlier. The postponement by seven days will further delay the admission process of the postgraduate, MPhil and PhD programme.
Registration for the programmes will begin June 7, and not on May 31 as announced earlier, according to a release from the university. Last date for registration will be June 20.
“The University of Delhi announces the revised admission schedule of PhD, MPhil., Postgraduate and Undergraduate (entrance based) Programmes for the academic session 2017-2018. The eligible applicants are informed that the registration process of all the programmes will be completely online from June 7 and the last date from registration will be June 20,” the varsity said in the statement o its website.
The university did not announce the starting date for registration of undergraduate entrance based programmes. Aspirants for some subjects, such as Bachelor of Management Studies (BMS), Bachelor of Business Administration (Financial Investment Analysis), BA (H) Business Economics, Humanities and Social Sciences, Multimedia and Mass Communication, and BTech (Information Technology and Mathematical Innovations), have to appear for an entrance test.
These nine UG courses will have an online entrance test whereas the offline entrance for postgraduate courses will be held across in six centres across the country.
The admission process has seen various delays, with the online registration form frozen at some tabs. This has led to massive registrations but not one form has been submitted. It’s been eight days since the start of the online registration for DU colleges, but not a single form has been completed. Of the nine tabs on the online portal, three are still not functional, including the crucial academic details tab.
It is believed that this move is directed towards reducing the traffic on the site. This has also created an obstacle in the application process of St. Stephen’s and Jesus and Mary, which requires students to submit the registration number generated once the centralised form is completed.
