The University of Delhi is likely to commence the admission process to various undergraduate (UG) courses for the academic session 2021-22 in July, Rajeev Gupta, Chairman DU Admission said. In view of the coronavirus crisis, the entire admission process will be online and the candidates will be given sufficient time to complete the formalities.
Announcing the tentative date for DU admission, Mr. Gupta further said that there are about 70,000 seats for UG courses in 60 colleges affiliated with DU. The admission process will begin after the CBSE and the state boards announce Class 12 results, Mr. Gupta added.
In normal circumstances, DU also conducts entrance tests for admissions to nine UG courses. The tests are administered by the National Testing Agency (NTA). Delhi University, earlier today, also said that it will adjust its admission process to the extraordinary situation without compromising on merit and added that the Central Universities Common Entrance Test (CUCET) can be a good method.
After the CBSE and the CISCE announced canceling Class 12 board examinations in view of the ongoing Covid pandemic, PC Joshi, Acting Vice-Chancellor, said discussions will be held with the admission committee and the academic council of the university to finalize the process of admission to undergraduate courses.
The university last year, as a first, admitted the students to the first-year UG programs through the online admission process. The DU admission process in 2020 was completely online due to the onslaught of the Covid pandemic and the university had also advised students not to visit colleges in person. To accustom the students and the parents to the online application process and the details of documents required, the university also conducted several seminars in virtual mode.
