Delhi University may start registrations for candidates to take admission to its undergraduate (UG) and postgraduate courses on June 8 this year, only when a standing committee of the academic council will pass a tentative schedule prepared by the admissions department in its Friday meeting.
This will delay the admissions by almost a month from last year, when UG registrations started on May 15. According to the tentative schedule of the admission department, headed by Dean Admissions Shobha Bagai, the registration portal will open on June 8 and will be closed on June 30 for UG courses. The department proposes to reopen the portal from July 31 to August 9 for aspirants to update their Class XII marks.
According to the tentative schedule, the first cut-off list will be out on August 11. About five cut-offs will be announced, the last being on September 3, after which a “special cut-off” will be released on September 8.
Meanwhile, the document to be presented at the meeting of the standing committee’s agenda says more cut-offs may be released if seats are left vacant.
“The schedule will depend on the declaration of the Class XII results by CBSE. This is a tentative schedule. The dates may be modified, keeping in view the situation at the time of admission due to Covid-19,” it reads.
UG and PG bulletin of information will also be on Friday’s meeting agenda. It remains to be seen what changes the admission criteria, and how the Covid-19 pandemic will affect the DU admission process.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the CBSE board exams for Classes X and XII were postponed. They will be held from July 1 to 15.
