The application process for admission to undergraduate (UG), postgraduate, and doctorate courses in the University of Delhi (DU) will be closed on August 31. Those willing to apply at the university can do so at the official portal, du.ac.in till 5 pm. This is only the application process for the merit-based courses. The application process has been closed for entrance exam-based admissions.
This year, the university has adopted a single-form application form which means, any application will be eligible for every course and college. Once colleges release their cut-offs, students can apply anywhere, if they match the cut-off and other criteria. Cut-off for Delhi University is calculated based on the best four marks obtained in class 12 board exams.
Experts, however, believe that the cut-off is still expected to go high due to two reasons – much higher applications for Delhi University and a huge jump in 95 per cent scorers in board exams. Last year, 2.5 lakh students had applied for undergraduate courses at DU. This year, as on August 31, 7 am, a total of 3,49,541 applications were received by the university.
