Delhi University's ten-day counselling session or 'Open Days' began on Monday with around 600 students flocking the North Campus with a bag full of questions.
Some of the questions were on the functioning of online portals, courses that the varsity offers, new courses introduced, eligibility criteria and criteria to fall in the OBC non-creamy layer.
“The response was good, despite the results being undeclared yet,” Gurpreet Singh Tuteja, deputy dean of students' welfare, said.
Mistaken for a grandfather, a sexagenarian named Nagesh Chadha, who had secured distinction (229/300) in Urdu diploma last year from the varsity, amused fellow participants in the session with his interest in taking up a new course.
“I am inclined on taking up BA in German language from DU,” Chadha said after attending the session.
There were two sessions with a short break from 10 AM to around 1.30 PM. The sessions included one-on-one counselling for around 50 to 60 participants who wanted more clarifications.
The sessions will continue till May 31 at the Conference Centre, gate no 4 of North Campus from 10 am to 1 pm.
“We are expecting more crowd and more specific questions as the days pass. We can see a dip in number of general questions asked,” said Tuteja.
Every year before the admission process begins for its undergraduate courses, Delhi University conducts 'Open Days', or sessions for which students and parents are invited to get their admission-related queries addressed by the DU staff.
