NEW DELHI: The undergraduate admissions at Delhi University will begin with the release of the first cutoff list on October 12. In a notification on the admission dates for merit- and entrance-based admissions, DU has also announced that the next academic session will begin on November 18.
Admissions against each of the five cutoffs will take place in three days and continue till the beginning of the session. The university will conduct a special cutoff drive for reserved-category candidates from November 18 to 20.
The entrance-based UG admissions will begin on October 19 and continue till November 13. Classes for postgraduate students will also begin on November 18, while the PG admissions will be held from October 26 to November 13.
The university has been allowing applicants to edit their forms since September 12 and it will go on till October 5. In the wake of Covid-19, the admission process will be entirely online this year. Even the verification of the documents will be done remotely.
So far DU has decided to release only five cutoffs, but there may be more lists to accommodate the high number of applicants. This year, with an extended period for registration, DU has got the highest-ever number of applicants at 3,53,919.
TOI earlier reported that the DU administration had told the college principals that it was keen to start the process from October 12. “The administration asked us to prepare for the admission process as it will be completely online this year,” a principal had said.
So far only St Stephen’s College has released its first list on September 16, with 99.25% being the highest cutoff for economics (honours) for Class XII commerce students. The high percentage has prompted many principals to opine that initial cutoffs will be higher than usual this year.
