YouTube uploads, Instagram roles are not eligible for admission under ECA quota: DU

YouTube uploads, Instagram roles are not considered public appearances for admission under ECA quota: DU

Delhi University officials said on Thursday that YouTube uploads, Facebook and Instagram reels and “vlogs” will not be considered public performances for markings during admission under the “Extra Curricular Activities” (ECA) quota.

Admission through the ECA quota for the academic year 2022-23 will be made in 14 ECA categories, the officials said during a webinar, adding that candidates can apply for up to three ECA categories. However, the admission is only offered in one category.

“YouTube uploads, Facebook and Instagram reels, vlogs and other similar uploads on other non-peer-reviewed video streaming sites are not eligible to be flagged as part of public performances for admission under ECA categories,” said Deepti Taneja, Joint Dean , Cultural Council Office, during the webinar.

“Jigs in restaurants or other private platforms, without peer-reviewed mechanisms, are not eligible for flagging,” she said, adding public performance implies performance through a group or organization for mass public viewing.

“For admissions under the ECA’s supernumerary quota, a candidate’s combined ECA Merit (CEM) score is taken into account,” Taneja said.

A candidate’s CEM score is the sum of 25 percent of the highest degree-specific CUET percentage score from any program he/she has applied to and 75 percent of the highest ECA score obtained from the ECA categories for which the candidate is eligible coming.

The candidates must upload the relevant ECA certificates at the time of filling the Common Seat Allocation System-2022 application form.

“The uploaded certificates should also be taken along for the offline trials,” she said.

For an ECA score of 75 points, for all 12 categories (except NCC and NSS), 60 points are awarded based on physical tests and 15 points based on the submitted certificates. The certificates are divided into four categories: participation, prizes in competitions, training/examinations, workshops, public performance, published works and exhibition.

On Monday, the university had started the second phase of the undergraduate program admissions process, allowing candidates to choose their preferences for the combination of program and university.

Phase I, which began September 12, and Phase II will remain open until October 10. The Common University Entrance Test (CUET) scores are also required in both phases.
