Delhi University is all set to take undergraduate admission from the next academic session based on the Common University Entrance Test (CUET). However, as per the officials, St Stephen’s College sent a request to continue the practice of holding interviews as before.

St Stephen’s College and Jesus and Mary College hold interviews for admission to undergraduate courses. That’s why the authorities have received the request for the same. Considering that, DU Vice-Chancellor Yogesh Singh said that the decision on this issue is in the process of discussion with the college. 

Going back to 22 March, that day the Academic Council approved the UG admission for the next academic session based on CUET. On 17 March, the Standing Committee approved and stated, “It is being decided that UG admission be done by CUET of all minority colleges which also includes St Stephen’s College and Jesus Mary College (both are affiliated with the University of Delhi). Though, a separate merit list will be announced for unreserved and minority students.”

Except for St Stephen’s College, other DU colleges conduct UG admissions through cut-offs. Moreover, St Stephen’s College’s release cut off keeping in the mind to accommodate the remaining percentage for online interviews. To clarify the cut-off of 85% and left 15% for online interviews. However, the college split the 15% into a written test and an interview. And again in 2020, the written test system was removed. Most importantly, it has a reservation of 50 percent seats for Christian students. 

Will students get more time to appear for DU exams?

Registrar Vikas Gupta said, “St Stephen’s College has sent requests for conducting interviews in all seats. We have approved the remaining unreserved 50 percent of seats to be filled by CUET. And, other reserved seats through both interviews and CUET.

Furthermore, college principal John Varghese stated that I have asked for clarification on the UG admission process through email. They completely agree with the CUET. After all, if the university has already said so, then they are fine with it.
