New Delhi: In spite of the glitch on a first day, Delhi University online admission forms have been a hit â€“ 68,000 admission seekers filled the forms online.
Apart from this, DU Students’ Union (DUSU) put up helpdesk to entertain queries of aspirants, which received an overwhelming response. Students from across the country are thronging the helpdesk at the district library to get DU offline forms and to find out the names of colleges where they could do the honours course in their favourite subjects.
Online facility also helps students to avoid the scorching heat. An admission seeker, Hiya Sahariah who is an ex-student of Delhi Public School, said, “I want to take honours in mathematics. The helpdesk was a great help.” Â
A continuous drop in selling of offline form was witnessed till fifth day, but selling of online forms is continuous at a good pace, according to official data, about 240,000 (online and offline) forms have been sold by the varsity till the fifth day.
