Welcome to Lady Shri Ram College For Women. Thank you for your interest in our college.

Requirements For Admission To LSR
  • Candidates who have passed the Senior School Certificate Examination (Class 12) of the Central Board of Secondary Education or a recognised equivalent examination are eligible to apply. The list of equivalent examinations may be seen on the Delhi University website
  • Since the medium of instruction for all courses except for Hindi and Sanskrit is English, the aggregate required for admission will be calculated on the basis of marks secured in English and three other elective subjects. For admission in Sanskrit and Hindi, a student has the option of including any language other than English in her ‘best four’ total.
  • For admission to Commerce or Economics, one of the subjects in Class 12 must be Mathematics in which students must attain the minimum required marks as indicated in the ‘Guidelines for Evaluation of Merit’.
  • Apart from these general criteria, different departments have evolved their specific criteria. These details are available in the ‘Guidelines for Evaluation of Merit’.
  • Meeting the above requirements does not automatically guarantee the applicant’s admission to the course of her choice. Canvassing of any kind will disqualify the candidate. The decision of the Admission Committee and the Principal in this regard will be final.
Pre-Admission Counselling
A Pre-Admission Counselling unit will be set up in the college from the 3rd to 14th June, 2013 to answer queries and explain the guidelines and criteria for admission. Students are advised to visit the unit between 10:00 a.m. and 1:00 p.m. (Monday to Friday) between the above mentioned dates. This interaction will help them understand the process and facilitate their admission.
Four Year Undergraduate Programme

The four year undergraduate programme is a new initiative by the University of Delhi that aims:
  • To bring in reform in the higher education stage.
  • To create international standards of teaching & learning.
  • To encourage multidisciplinarity at the under graduate level.
  • To provide for mobility and credit transfers both within India and abroad.
  • To enable students to transit easily for post graduate students abroad, especially in the United States.
  • To enhance equity and access by allowing multiple exit points for students from a diversity of background learning capacities and employment/ academic aspirations.
  • To provide for continued renewal and revitalization of courses.
  • To encourage the use of contemporary information technology tools in teaching learning.
  • To replace old methodologies of rote learning and blackboard based pedagogy.
  • To engage in processes of collaboration and educative learning.

The four year undergraduate programme is an integrated programme that includes a combination of courses:

1. Foundation Courses (FC)
2. Discipline Courses-I (DC-I) (Major Discipline)
3. Discipline Courses-II (DC-II) (Minor Discipline)
4. Applied Courses (AC)

6. Cultural Activities including NCC, Sports, NSS etc. (CA)

Multiple Exit Options

At LSR, we encourage all our students to complete the four year undergraduate programme and graduate with a B. A. Honours/B. Tech degree. However, if for some exceptional reason, a student wishes to leave College after two years, she will be awarded a Diploma and will have the option of returning to the University of Delhi within the next ten years to complete her graduation. If a student opts to leave after three years, she will be awarded a B. A. degree with a Major.
Attendance Requirements

Attendance requirements are very strictly adhered to at LSR. Students of professional courses such as Journalism and Mass Communication and Elementary Education are required to attend 75% of the total lectures and tutorials separately in theory and practical to appear for the University Examination. Students of all other courses are required to complete 66.6% of the total lectures and tutorials separately in theory and practical to appear for the University Examination.
Calculating Eligibility And Admission Possibilities

Marks are calculated on the basis of a language (English) and three best elective subjects. (Only one vocational course can be considered and will carry a negative weightage).
  • Along with English, a second language can be considered as one of the other three elective subjects provided that the mark sheet states that this other language is an elective course.
  • To calculate the aggregate, candidates must read the Lady Shri Ram College ‘Guidelines for Evaluation of Merit’ carefully. It is important to be familiar with these as there are different requirements and special criteria for individual courses that have to be kept in mind while calculating the aggregate for consideration for admission.
  • Admission to the four year undergraduate degree course will be based on Discipline-1 (Major Discipline).
For example, if a student wishes to choose Economics as her Discipline-1 course, her marks should fall within the ‘cut-off’ of that course.
