Delhi University commenced its registration process for undergraduate students on August 2, 2021. Till now, over 3.18 lakh candidates have registered on the University’s portal for admissions to various courses. Approximately, 3,18,158 aspirants have registered on the admission portal till now. Out of the total number of candidates, 1,47,435 have successfully made the payment as well.
Delhi University is likely to release its first cut-off for undergraduate courses on 1st October 2021. The admission process for undergraduate and postgraduate courses is currently in progress. Like previous years, the admission will be done on the basis of cut-off that is released by various colleges. However, as of now, the schedule has not been confirmed.
As per the PTI, Dean of Admissions, Professor Pinki Sharma said, “We are planning to start by October 1. With October 2 and 3 being holidays, we will start the admission process by October 4”.
Currently, DU is receiving applications for undergraduate, postgraduate and PhD courses offered by the varsity. The registration process for the same will end on August 31, 2021.
Earlier, the University had planned to announce the 1st cut-off list between 8th to 10th September. However, the varsity had considered the chance of offline CBSE exams while setting the date. Furthermore, with October 1 as the date, CBSE Compartment exams, optional exams, NEET and JEE exams would also be complete.
The Sky-High Cut-offs
For UG courses, DU cut-offs have been constantly increasing for the past few years. Last year, the cut-offs were as high as 100% for some colleges. The Lady Sri Ram College for Commerce had released its cut off-list at 100% for some honours UG courses in 2020.
Therefore, this year students are anticipating high cut-offs for obvious reasons.
DU colleges set very high cut-offs to prevent “over admissions”. According to the rules, no college cannot turn away a student who has made the cut-off. There is no first-come, first-serve rule. Due to a high number of registrations, this year colleges will increase the number of seats to accommodate all eligible students.

The university is expected to release at least a minimum of 6 cut-offs every year. The 2021 cut-off marks will be determined on the basis of the best of four marks in the qualifying exam, i.e., class 12th.
Last year, Delhi University’s academic session started on October 18. However, this year’s planner has not yet been made official.
