Delhi university began its admission process from Saturday 5 PM onwards today. Following the declaration of the results by CBSE, the admission portal will reopen at a later date for the students. The admission process would be for undergraduate programs in 63 colleges, postgraduate, M.Phil., and Ph.D. courses. The applicants can register until July 4. Once the Central Board of Secondary Education announces the results (CBSE), students will be given a second chance to update their marks. Around ten entrance-based admission courses registration process would also begin on Saturday.
CBSE had rescheduled all its remaining Class 12 exams due to the COVID-19 crisis. Between July 1 and 15, 12 significant subjects are now scheduled to take place. It has been the latest decision so far. The Supreme Court, however, has asked the board to consider alternatives like marking students based on internal assessments instead of exams during the pandemic while hearing a plea. According to reports, the tentative plan by the Delhi University administration is to allow the students to enter their marks for ten days following CBSE results.
There is no particular date as of now to release the cut-off dates as there is no clarity when the results of the CBSE results will be declared. As per the tentative plans, students will get about ten days to enter their marks following CBSE results.
It is the first time that the DU would be following the “contactless admission” where students will not be required to visit colleges to complete the process. The entire admission process would be online.
The cut off process would be similar to that of the last year. The university would be releasing five cut off lists. After that, a particular cut off would be released for general category students to fill the seats, and a particular drive for reserve category would be conducted. The session in all colleges is likely to begin from September 1.
National Testing Agency would be notifying the entrance schedule. According to the new rules, there would be a 10% increase under the economically weaker section (EWS) category quota from 15%, which was implemented last year, to 25%.
Students who wish to study philosophy and social work will not face a 2.5% reduction in their best of four marks. It has been a demand for a long time as these subjects were not offered at the school level. Also, standard mathematics and applied mathematics would be considered for admission to BCom and Economics (Hons) courses.
