It has been four days since the registration portal for Delhi University admission became functional. However, not even a single registration has been completely concluded so far. Students are facing various technical issues, due to which they are not able to register and submit the fee amount.
One of the most common problems reported by the students is that they are not able to go beyond personal details section, i.e. tab 1. When candidates are clicking on the next button, the below mentioned status is appearing.
While some are considering this as a glitch in the DU registration system, the other believe that the University has not opened the complete registration portal because it wants students to take their time, think, and then apply.
Even during the open house the University of Delhi asked the students to not apply in rush,”There is no need to apply in a rush. Students can wait for their CBSE results and then apply accordingly,” said Gurpreet Singh Tuteja.
Also, the option to make the payment of has also been put on hold because of the ongoing hearing on the scrapping of moderation policy for the current CBSE class 10 and 12 result. “We had taken the decision of not opening the payment gateway before a decision is taken by Delhi High Court on moderation policy. However, the option will be made available within this week,” said Dr. Ashutosh Bharadwaj, OSD admissions.
The stall in the registration process may seem thoughtful on one end. However, on the flip side, it is creating anxiousness among the students, as well as the colleges. St Stephen’s College and Jesus and Mary College are the latest addition to the DU centralized admission process. The institutes are clueless about the potential audience.
“So far, we do not know how many students want to come to St Stephen’s in particular. This will be stalled until the centralised process does not allow the applicants to make payment,” said an admission committee official of St Stephen’s.
The registration started on May 22, 2107, and on day one almost 40,000 registered, in hope to receive admission in any of the 62 college, which offered around 54,000 seats. The number of candidates in these four days has definitely hiked up. More than 400 students are daily contacting the helpline regarding the registration process.
The students are already apprehensive about the soon to be announced class 12 and 10 result and adding heat to the situation is the CBSE’s decision to remove grace marks from this year. Now that even DU registration is having such glitches, the troubles of the students are only increasing.
What we will suggest is that students do not panic. The last date to apply as per DU Admission Schedule is June 12, 2017. The registration will for sure open completely in few days. The time period between class 12 and college is only actual free time. Focus on the upcoming entrance examination, if any, else distract yourself from this chaos by learning a new form of art.
