College cutoff hysteria keeps helplines busy

New
 Delhi: Delhi University’s helplines have been buzzing with calls from
aspirants enquiring which college is better than the other. They are
also concerned if they should let go of a popular college to study a
better course elsewhere.
    DU officials say the aspirants need to
make an informed choice. While the old campus colleges have brand value,
 the newer colleges have got better courses and infrastructure. A right
choice at this stage, made without any peer or parental pressure, can go
 a log way in establishing a good career, they said.
    “All
 DU colleges teach the same syllabus and have equally qualified
teachers. They all provide good exposure to students in various fields,”
 said Dinesh Varshney, deputy dean, students’ welfare, South Campus. He
insisted that colleges now focus on an all-round development of students
 irrespective of their location.
    Often aspirants take up any
course just to be in a popular college when they could have been
studying a course of their choice in an upcoming college. Prateek Kalra,
 an aspiring commerce student, is worried that he would not get a seat
in Shri Ram College of Commerce. At 93% however, he can take up BCom (H)
 in an off-campus college. “I feel a little heart-broken. I wanted to be
 in SRCC but it’s not going to happen now. I am wondering whether to
take up a humanities course in another North Campus college,” he said.
    In
 such a case, Sunil Sondhi, principal of Maharaja Agrasen College,
advises that aspirants should spend a day exploring colleges in east and
 west Delhi too. “We have one of the biggest campuses, a new building,
big and well-equipped laboratories and cultural facilities. While the
off-campus colleges have better courses and administration, older
colleges are facing many internal problems,” Sondhi said.
    SRCC
principal P C Jain said, “College is important as it provides students
with a natural advantage. But even if aspirants can’t get into SRCC,
that’s not the end of life. Wherever they go, they should work hard
enough to beat even the best.”
