New Delhi, June 23: Now the confusion is whether Delhi University colleges will be able to declare the first cutoff list for undergraduate admissions as per schedule-the entire programme appears to have changed in the 10 days since the application process ended.
The first cutoff list for 2014-15 was to be declared on June 24.
The latest University Grants Commission's letter has complicated the process, leaving principals and admission committee members confused. Colleges are now looking for clarity from the standing committee set up by UGC on Saturday, reported media.
Colleges are also unsure whether they have to admit students in few programmes as UGC has directed that admissions for 2014-15 have to be as per the three-year structure
"When these courses were scrapped, the university had told us the methodology for redistribution of seats. Now if they are to be restored, the university is obliged to tell us how," says a senior official from Ram Lal Anand College, conceding that they are "totally confused."
"If the previous system and courses are restored, it's almost like doing everything afresh," observes Rajendra Prasad, principal, Ramjas College, "We will need more time to reorganize as a lot of work is involved. I hope the university will define the policies."
SRCC principal P C Jain said, "We will continue with the cutoff meeting. We are awaiting further instructions though SRCC will not have any problem in deciding cutoffs as, even in the three-year system, we had just two courses."
However, it will be colleges that used to offer BCom, BSc and BA programmes in the three-year scheme and where BTech courses were introduced under FYUP that will face complications in deciding cutoffs.
