Rush at DU for final counseling session

The last of the nine open day sessions organised by Delhi University on Wednesday to counsel students and parents about the admission procedures saw an overwhelming number of university aspirants inquiring about cutoffs, said officials. The counseling programme of the final open day was held at the Acharya Narendra Dev College in the university's south Delhi campus. Students and parents poured in for all the three scheduled sessions – resulting in a jam-packed auditorium each time, said counselors. The sessions even had to be extended by additional two hours to accommodate the massive turnout.

 

'There were a lot of students because of which we had to go beyond the session timings. Usually we have the open day session from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. But today it went on till three in the afternoon,' told DU student counsellor Angad Singh Kalra. 'Most students were inquiring about how high the cut offs would go and which were the best colleges for them. However, students must remember that they should put the course above college,' said Kalra. Although the open day sessions culminated here on Wednesday, the student counselors have a tough task ahead – keep counselling sessions going till the second and third cut off lists are announced in mid-June. Akanksha Arora, another counselor said, 'We will keep on guiding students till the third cut off list is out. We will now divide ourselves into two groups of eight and continue to counsel students at two centres – students can contact us at the DSW (Deputy Dean Students Welfare) office in the north and south campuses.'
