As announced by the University of Delhi (DU), there will not be entrance based admission for any new course.

Pankaj Arora, the dean of admissions said, “We are trying to reschedule the admission process in order to complete it within the set timeline and avoid further clashes with the classes. Also, no new courses will be introduced for entrance based admissions and the entrance tests will continue to be conducted by the National Testing Agency (NTA) itself.‚ÄĚ

Also, NTA and DU will jointly announce the new complete admission schedule for the year 2020 soon.

Every year, DU conducts Delhi University Entrance Test (DUET) to enrol students in some UG courses including, B.A. (Honours) Business Economics, Bachelor of Management Studies (BMS), Bachelor of Business Administration (Financial Investment Analysis), B.TECH (Information Technology and Mathematical Innovations), B.A. (Honours) Humanities & Social Sciences, Bachelor of Elementary Education and Five-Year Integrated Programme in Journalism.

Earlier, DU was thinking of making entrance exams mandatory for all the courses at the UG level. But as the official has confirmed, previous pattern will be followed for entrance-based admissions.

In fact, in December 2019, the varsity released an online form seeking suggestions to improve the admission process and make it more student-friendly. And so, as many as 210 responses were received in the first round and the suggestions were majorly about the requirement of one-time document verification to single forms for admissions in the esteemed  university.

Regarding the admission process for the year 2020, Arora said, ‚ÄúWe are currently analysing the proposed suggestions and will incorporate the shortlisted ones in the upcoming admission process. On the basis of response received from the people, we have also extended the process and new suggestions can now be submitted till January 31.‚ÄĚ

He also mentioned that, ‚ÄúIntroducing¬†a single form for admission in different courses is under consideration as every college has a separate requirement and introducing a single form will be a challenge. Though, we¬†are trying to reduce documentation and exhaustive process of filling several forms during the admission time.‚ÄĚ

It is believed that the registrations for admissions in undergraduate (UG) courses can start from the first week of April.
