Thinking what to do next? Here are a few tips:
- If you haven't been able to bag a seat in your favourite college, don't give up! Apply for the course of your choice and wait for the second list. Once the second list is out for your selected course, you can apply again at your favourite college. So, pick a course and hope that you get through in the second list. The second list is expected to come out within a week.
- It is suggested that you book your hostel along the admissions. It saves many and that extra ten-minute in the morning. You will need them both during your graduation
- Try to look for colleges that have active and reputed extra-curricular. That can be the most important takeaway from your three-year stint at Delhi University.
