Q:   Can I take admission to DU with 60% in Class 12?

A: 

DU is considered one of the most competitive universities in India for Commerce, Science and Arts education at the undergraduate level. The university and its affiliated colleges was attracting the cream layer of crowd till the time admission was subject to Class 12 scores. While reserved category candidates still had minor chances of getting into a not-so-popular course of DU with 60% in Class 12, a General category student with 60% had no chance of getting into any good college or course at DU. 

However, starting 2022, DU admission process has shifted to CUET-UG based admission process. Those with a valid score in CUET UG exam who have passed their Class 12 are eligible to take admission now. While the chances of getting into a good DU college are still low at this score, the chances of getting a seat have increased now (provided you score extremely well in CUET UG).

4Placements5Infrastructure5Faculty4Crowd & Campus Life5Value for Money
It's a good college with good infrastructure and all the facilities. Faculty members are very good.
Placements: Every year, the placement drive happens twice and the count of students that get selected from the course is 7 to 8 and this number keeps varying depending on the number of students who have registered themselves for the placement and, obviously, the skills. The starting package ranges from 4.5 to 7 lacs or it could be more than 7 lacs, depending on how good your skills are in that field and your experience. Packages can also vary depending on whether you are experienced or a fresher. There are numerous companies that recruit; some of them are TCS, Wipro, Amazon and others. A lot of students get internships at companies like Microsoft, Google, and other IT companies. Top roles offered are techie, HR, and teaching-related jobs.
Infrastructure: Our college is counted among the best colleges in DU with modern infrastructure. Our college has its own hostel, providing residence to around 1500 girls with all the other necessary facilities. There are 14 different departments in our college. Our department, the department of electronics, is the first department of the college. Our department has its own library for the students. All the labs are well maintained, have new and modern tools and devices and are all in very good condition. All the classrooms and labs have AC, proper chair and tables. There are digital analog labs, communication labs, electronics labs 1 and 2 and simulation labs 1 and 2 each with more than 52 systems and all with the latest software and features. Wi-Fi is available for the students. Overall, in terms of infrastructure and facilities, we get all the basics, or more than that.
Faculty: Faculty members of our college, whether they are from our own department or from other departments, are all very kind and helpful. They are always ready to help their students, whether you ask them in college or online. We are not the ones to judge their qualification level, which also has no point but yes, they are all very well qualified and most of them have either a doctorate or a master's in their paper. They always make sure that we are getting whatever they are teaching us. The teaching quality is very good. Yes, the course is relatively curriculum-based, and they do make the students ready for their work. Semesters exams are of moderate to high level. Generally, we have found that even semesters are a little bit difficult compared to the odd ones. But thanks to our faculty members, we don't face many difficulties.
Other: Ours batch was from 2021–24. I chose this course because I have interest in it and want to do higher studies in the same field. It's equivalent to B.Tech and it provides both theoretical and practical things that help you go into either the IT sector or do research in the same. Students in this course have a better future in the semiconductor field. As we all know, semiconductor industry is going to be built in India, which will provide lots of better jobs to students of this field. Still, there are fewer jobs in India as compared to other foreign countries but it's also there that India is working towards it and soon there will be a lot of scope for these students. Though it provides technical experience via seminars or other studies, there should still be more industrial visit and exposure to the students. Every year, our department organises its own events under the college technical festival. In it, students get the chance to show off their technical talents and get to know others, as students from other colleges also participate. We get chance to present our projects ( software and hardware ). Judges from different universities come to judges our projects. Coding competitions take place and lots of competitions are organized related to technical things. Talking about college fest KARVAN, its of another level; it's a two-day fest where different societies of the college organize different events and a lot of students participate in the same. Our college literally gets very crowded during the festival. There are lots of scholarship scheme which keep coming. Students also get negative feedback on their feelings.

Absolutely not satisfied with the placements but the experience at this college is quite nice.
Placements: No placements are provided by the college, you have to look for off-campus placements yourself. Placement fairs are held in the north campus of DU where you can apply for job interviews but there are no on-campus placements provided by the college for my course.
Infrastructure: Infrastructure is not that great. Earlier it was nothing and resembled a government school, but recently many things have changed in the college post renovation. There are no hostel facilities provided by the college. You need to look for PGs or flats outside the campus.
Faculty: Faculty is average, neither too bad nor too good. It majorly depends upon how involved you are with your studies. The end-semester exams are not that difficult if you have been consistent throughout the semester and have attended classes along with doing your studies and assignments properly.

Infrastructure: We don't have a hostel right now but overall infrastructure of the faculty is good and spacious for all three branches. It is present within the main campus of University of Delhi, which is the most reputed university of India and is known for conducting a wide array of courses which include arts, B.Com., B.Sc. medical, law, humanities, etc. And also, the faculty of technology offered courses in technology under it since 1960 to 2018.

Review of Atma Ram Sanatan Dharma College.
Placements: More than 70% of students are placed. According to last year's reports, the highest package is about 25 LPA and the lowest is 3.5 LPA for a Bachelor of Commerce. Companies like Accenture, Microsoft, and Amazon recruited students in my course and a maximum of 65% of students got internships at companies like Zomato, Microsoft, and Amazon.
Infrastructure: Coming to college or my course department's infrastructure, it is very planned and we will find the place peaceful, it looks simple, the furniture is available, and we will get many Wi-Fi's to use. The labs are well-equipped with advanced equipment; actually, there is no availability of hostel and there is no mess; there is only one canteen on the college premises and for the sports and games enthusiasts, there is good quality equipment .
Faculty: Yes, most of the teachers who are teaching in my college are well trained, and they came after doing a Ph.D. so we do not need to get stressed about them, and they are very helpful; they will clear up every doubt, they are well qualified, and they have enough knowledge to teach. The quality of teaching is enough to be understood because everyone can understand it properly, and the course curriculum is also simulated with a syllabus. Of course, it will be helpful for the students to get ready for the industry, and coming to the exams in college, if we prepare well before one month, we can perform well in the exams without any tension and the pass percentage was 80%.
Other: I chose this course because I took commerce course in 11th and 12th so to continue with that, I took B.Com. course and the best thing about my course is that it is flexible in nature, there is no need to take much stress and I don't think and don't want to any changes in my course coming to the events, there are much more events which will be conducted every year and through out the year for the benefit of students and there is a popular festival known as Tide, which is very popular and there will be many popular stars. When the campus crowd arrived, it was good enough from Monday to Thursday and the campus surroundings are well maintained. It is near to the metro station Coming to the scholarships, they give very few scholarships, and many clubs are there for extra curricular activities .

Up until 2021, only top scorers of Class 12 were able to get into Hindu, Hansraj, Miranada, SRCC, LSR and other reputed colleges for top courses such as BA (Hons) in Economics/ English/ Political Science, BSc (Hons) Physics/ Chemistry/ Mathematics and BCom (Hons) courses. However, the introduction of CUET has changed the game. Now, even if a student could not do well in Class 12 has a chance of getting into the cream colleges with a good score in CUET.

However, if the dream is just to study in a reputed DU college, there is a basic hack that can be followed by anyone and everyone. All the top colleges of DU offer short-duration certificate courses in Languages and other interest areas. Those who are not able to get into DU can witness the buzz of being a DU student by pursuing these courses. For details on the same, students are advised to visit the official website of the DU affiliated colleges.

Q:   I didn't apply for CUET. Can I still get admission to Delhi University?

A: 
Yes, you can still get admission to Delhi University even if you didn't apply for CUET. However, your chances of getting admission will be much lower. Here are some of the ways you can get admission to Delhi University without CUET: 1. Take a chance on the spot admission: You can try your luck at the spot admission process, which is conducted by Delhi University after the CUET results are announced. However, the number of seats available under the spot admission process is very limited, so your chances of getting admission are slim. 2. Apply for admission through the Delhi University School of Open Learning (SOL): The Delhi University School of Open Learning (SOL) offers a variety of undergraduate and postgraduate courses that do not require CUET scores. However, the admission process for SOL is more competitive than the regular admission process. 3. Apply for admission through a private college: There are a number of private colleges in Delhi that offer admission without CUET scores. However, the fees for these colleges are usually much higher than the fees for government colleges. I hope this helps! Let me know if you have any other questions.
