Delhi University(DU) on Sunday said ECA admissions will be held on the basis of certificates.
This year, the varsity had decided to not hold the extra-curricular activities (ECA) admissions, barring those having NCC and NSS certificates within the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic.
But it had been decided last week that the varsity will revisit its decision and on Sunday, the varsity said admissions under 12 categories, including music, dance, divinity, yoga, are going to be held this year on the idea of certificates.
“The registration for admission to all or any courses (UG, PG, M.Phil./ Ph.D) through entrance shall close on July 31. However, the registration for admission through merit shall remain open till August 31,” it said.
Earlier, the last date for registration was Independence Day but it had been later extended to July 18 and subsequently to July 31 for both merit-based and entrance-based courses. Now, the date for merit-based courses has been extended to August 31. The cut-offs are likely to be announced in September.
The applicants willing to register under the ECA can do so from Lammas to 31. Applicants who have already registered and need to use under the ECA category also can do so from Lammas to 31 after paying a further fee of ₹100.
Applicants may register for a maximum of three ECA categories, it said.
“Admissions under ECA are going to be done supported merit/participation certificates of applicants. Applicants would be required to upload a maximum of best five certificates of preceding three years (May 1, 2017 to April 30, 2020). Undated certificates won’t be considered for marking,” the varsity said.
Certificates uploaded by an applicant shall be scrutinised and evaluated out of a maximum of 100 marks. Applicants scoring 20 marks and above in uploaded certificates shall be eligible for final merit list of admission on the idea of ECA.
The marks under the ECA category are going to be awarded supported the sum of the entire marks awarded within the three best certificates uploaded by a candidate.
Forensic examination of certificates of all admitted candidates under the ECA category are going to be done, it said.
The varsity said editing of forms won’t be allowed in their registered email ID, category and gender, within the number of courses an applicant has chosen for entrance test within the undergraduate courses, entrance test centre chosen by the applicants at the time of registration.
Applicants would be allowed to exchange or update documents — caste certificate, EWS certificate, mark-sheet, minority certificate, medical certificate, supporting documents for ECA and sports.
The window for editing is probably going to be announced in between the third week of August to the second week of September this year.
