Shobha Bagai had earlier said that it is likely that the university will conduct the admission procedure online because of the ongoing COVID -19 situation. She had also said that the University is devising a plan which will enable them to reach out to all the students. This might need measures beyond making the procedure online and it is the reason why the admission process is getting delayed.
The official website reads that the registration process will begin soon. But the dates for the exams have not been announced yet.

As per the High Court, the University cannot release the cut-off list before the CBSE result is out. As per the Ministry of HRD, the CBSE class 12 results are expected by the end of July or the beginning of August. This ensures that the application form will be released in the month of June itself to provide enough time to the students for the filling of application forms along with merit processing.
According to experts, the cut-offs for the merit-based undergraduate admissions is expected to be higher this year. This is because all those students who were applying for foreign universities will consider studying in their country because of this pandemic.
There were 2.58 lakh applications were received for the 64,000 available undergraduate seats in the University. DU has also started conducting its entrance examinations through NTA since last year. The dates for the entrance exams are also awaited.
The admission procedure has already been delayed for so long. The students are worried about their future. Many students of CBSE and ICSE are still waiting for the dates of the exams which were canceled because of coronavirus.
