Registrations for DU admission 2021 (undergraduates) will start from tomorrow.

For undergraduate courses, admissions are mostly based on merit – Class 12 board exam result – with some programmes admitting students on the basis of entrance exam. Registrations for UG merit based admission will be from August 2 to 31.
This year, DU cut off marks for UG courses are likely to go higher, with many students scoring over 95 percent marks in CBSE Class 12 board results.
Here are five points on all you need to know about DU Admission 2021:
- DU admission 2021 will be conducted in many rounds and it will release cut off lists at the end of each round. Last year, the top colleges closed admissions in the first and second rounds, with many setting 100 as cut off marks for the most sought-after courses. The total number of UG seats in the university is 65,000 and the total number of PG seats is 20,000. The first cut-off list will be released between September 7 and 10.
DU admission brunch is holding webinars to help students in the admission process. One such session has been conducted already and students can find dates for the upcoming webinars on the DU website. “In addition, computer-based help desks in the form of chat-bots and emails will also be available 24*7 to answer queries of the candidates,” DU had said.
The admission to undergraduate courses will be merit-based, like the previous year. There will be no change in the eligibility criteria and registration fee this year. In addition, the university has increased the number of courses for which the Delhi University Entrance Test (DUET) 2021 to be held to 13 from nine last year. The four new courses for which entrances will be held from this year are Bachelor in Physiotherapy, Bachelor in Occupational Therapy, Bachelor of Prosthetics and Orthotics, and Masters of Physiotherapy. The National Testing Agency (NTA) conducts the entrance exam.
At least one percent of the total intake capacity of a college will be represented by students joining through the Extracurricular Activities (ECA) and Sports quotas. A college may admit students up to 5 percent of its total intake strength using ECA and Sports quotas, the university said.
DU said it may not conduct trials for ECA and Sports quota admissions this year in view of the COVID-19 situation in the country. “Admissions under these supernumerary seats will be done based on the Merit/Participation certificates of the applicants. Only for this year, the applicants will be allowed to upload certificates of the preceding four years (1st May 2017 – 30th April 2021),” the university said.
