Welcome to a new journey, a journey called “College Hunting”. Given the elusive nature of Delhi University and the many myths and fads that tag long, doing that in a systematic manner and being fully prepared is the need of hour. The times ahead may seem hectic, however one should leave no stone unturned. Making the right choice is important as once you get through the best college, it is indeed going to make you stand above the rest and represent you for all your life. Being at the right place at the right time is all it takes. Here are a few pointers students need to keep in mind while going on their future college hunt.
THE BEST OF 4’s
The first and foremost thing is to calculate is your BEST OF FOUR percentage, without which one cannot begin their admission process. The best of four subject should include one language subject, and the subject one wants to opt for and the other two depending upon the best scores.
THE APPLICATION POLICY

FILLING THE OMR SHEET
Students need to be vigilant while filling the OMR sheet. It is advised to fill as many colleges and courses as possible as one never know which college may close admission depending on seat availability. Students should carefully read the instructions provided.
Before signing out I would say that it is going to be once in a lifetime experience so one should make the most out of it. While being optimistic about one’s percentage is good but reserving seat at the right time is as important. Enough CASH should be carried as it will be required during the time of admission (some colleges accept Demand Draft). Keep loads of “coins” and change handy which can be of major use at “photocopy shop wala bhaiiya to Rickshaw puller”. And last but not the least if possible accompany your friends or parents as they can be your “Knight in shining armor”.
Beside this Help desk are also provided for students in the colleges. For further information one can also visit Delhi University official website: www.du.ac.in
