New Delhi: Delhi University servers are groaning under pressure during the admission season with anxious students generating multiple applications and in some cases even more than 300 to secure a seat after the first cut-offs were announced.
DU aspirants might have the option of studying only one course at the university but that does not, in any way, deter them from generating as many applications as they want, which many a times puts pressure on the server, leading to it even crashing on the first day of admissions after the cut-offs are announced, an official said.
This year was no different. As soon as the first cut-offs were announced on June 19, the server became active from 9.30 am onwards with students logging in frantically to start applying.
According to admission rules, applicants need to study the cut-off list, select courses and colleges on the university website, take printout of the admission slip and finally approach respective colleges with the slip and required documents.
“However, candidates, who are probably undecided or unsure, generate more than one admission slip, thereby putting severe pressure on the server,” said an official.
