The university has identified
a  specific set of problems that students
face during admission. Selecting the right subject and the right college are
the most common problems. “We feel that there is a need to counsel students at
the school level. Although the university used to arrange periodic career
counseling sessions in schools, it was not enough,” informed SK Vij, dean,
students’ welfare, DU. “To counter this deficit the university has planned to
set up a career-counseling cell for school teachers and principals,” he added.
 
The university will organise information sessions on various
colleges, the courses they offer and the admission procedure. “CBSE has started
offering many new subjects in class XI. However, some of these subjects are not
accepted at the university level for a particular course. Financial markets and
marketing is one such subject. In fact, last year students had opted for this
subject to ensure eligibility for a BCom course. However, we do not consider
this subject for offering BCom admission. Hence, we lost many bright students
last year,” shared Vij. He added that the career-counseling cell shall take
cognisance of this and similar issues.
 
Incidentally, many colleges have different criteria for
calculating percentage or for selecting the best four subjects. The counseling
cell will train school teachers in all these aspects so that they have a clear
idea of the Delhi
UniversityÂ’s admission process.
 
As to the number of schools that will be participating,
Gurpreet Singh Tuteja, deputy dean, students’ welfare, DU, said, “We have
started the process of inviting teachers from Kendriya Vidyalayas, public and
government schools.”
