The first day of admissions at Delhi University was chaotic and confusing to say the least. From The Quint’s experience on the ground, students and parents alike were not up to speed with the new online procedure.

The varsity was in no position to handle the pressure of so many perplexed students arriving for admissions.

It turned out that undergraduate applicants weren’t aware that they were supposed to ‘block their seats’ before coming in to take admissions.

While admissions started at 9 am, and ended promptly 1 pm, DU servers were down all day. Many who had been waiting in line since morning, went back home empty-handed.

If you were unsuccessful in securing your college seat on the first day, or if you are going to the campus for the first time on Friday, you need to read on.

The Quint has some advice.

How Do You Block Your Seat?

  • At the time of the online registration, you will have used a unique email id and password.
  • Log on to the Delhi University portal using that ID.
  • Select the colleges you have registered for, and for which you have cleared the cut-off.
  • Upon doing so, a form will appear.
  • Print that form out and bring it along for admissions.

Other (Self-Attested) Documents Required

  • Class X Board Examination Certificate.
  • Class X Marks Sheet (In case it is not combined with certificate).
  • Class XII Marks Sheet.
  • Class XII Provisional Certificate/original certificate.
  • Character Certificate (recent).
  • Transfer Certificate from school/college as well as Migration Certificate from Board/University, from students who have passed their senior secondary exam from outside Delhi.
  • Recent passport size photographs.
  • Scanned copy of signature.

Documents Required to Apply Through Various Quotas

  • SC/ST/PWD Certificate (in the name of the candidate) issued by a competent authority.
  • (a) OBC (Non-Creamy Layer) Certificate (in the name of the candidate) issued by competent authority (b) Income Proof.
  • For Kashmiri Migrant Quota: Kashmiri Migrant Certificate issued by Divisional Commissioner/ Relief Commissioner.
  • For CW Quota: Educational Concession Certificate issued by a competent authority.
  • Sports/ECA Distinction Certificates for the last three years in descending order (1st April, 2013 to 31st March, 2016).

Apart from this, be sure to carry some water and snacks. You’re in for a long haul.

The admission procedure will begin at 9 am and go on till 1 pm for day colleges and will resume at 4 pm for evening colleges.

Admissions for the first cut-off list will end on 2 July, Saturday.
