NEW DELHI: Admission season at Delhi University finally took off today after week-long uncertainty due to the fracas over the four-year undergraduate programme (FYUP) with students queueing up at various colleges in large numbers.

DU announced a high cut-off list post midnight for admission to undergraduate courses under three-year format with three rank outsider colleges setting the maximum bar of 100 per cent for B.Sc (Honours) Computer Science course.

With admissions a week behind schedule, students seemed eager to get themselves enrolled to the colleges of their choice and quite relieved that the row between University Grants Commission and the varsity over FYUP had ended.

"I am glad that the chaos over four-year undergraduate programme (FYUP) has ended. It was unnecessarily being stretched. I am more than happy that FYUP has been rolled back as a lot of my seniors had been dissatisfied by the curriculum under the programme," said Aishani Wadhva, a DU aspirant.

There were some who said that even though they would not have mind studying under the four-year structure, they were glad that the controversy had ended paving way for the admissions to begin.

"I would have preferred to study the four-year programme. The multi-disciplinary foundation courses would have been extremely helpful while the applied courses would have provided us with job skills. But am I glad that at least the uncertainty is over," said Disha Sethi, an SRCC aspirant.

Another student Chaitanya Vaishnav said, "I made it to the first cut off list to SRCC. Be it three years or four...I wanted to pursue my undergraduate studies at SRCC. I believe the delay caused due to the FYUP controversy, will not impact the students because the session will anyway begin as scheduled," says Chaitanya Vaishnav.

It is expected that a sudden switch from FYUP to the previous three-year format will lead to some hiccups and delays in the admission process.

DU aspirant Arman Kukreti, however, gave positive feedback on the management saying he did not face much hassle.

"I guess the chaos is over now since the FYUP has been rolled back," he said.
