More than 4 lakh candidates applied
This year, 4,38,696 students applied for admission to undergraduate courses. The number of applicants is almost double as compared to last year. There has also been an increase in the number of students securing more than 95 percent marks due to the cancellation of the exam due to Corona and the preparation of results based on the evaluation policy.
As per the data, most of the DU applicants are from CBSE. The number of students who have secured 95% marks in the CBSE 12th Board is 70,000. This means more students will be competing for seats this year.
Other cut off lists will be released only if seats remain vacant
Delhi University officials have said that there is a possibility that the seats will fill up fast this year due to the increase in the number of applicants. If seats remain vacant then a more cut-off list will be released. Last year the cut-off list for 10 seats was released. Once the cut-off list is out, students will have around three days to apply.
The number of seats will increase, new courses will be added
It is also planned to accommodate more students by introducing new courses in line with the New National Education Policy (NEP) 2020 for both undergraduate (UG) and postgraduate (PG) programs in the affiliated colleges of Delhi University.
The number of seats in Hansraj College’s BA program is likely to be increased from 50 to 80. Its intake will also be increased from 15 to 40 in DU’s Zakir Hussain College (Evening). Janki Devi Memorial College, Shyam Lal College, Dyal Singh College (Evening), and Bharti College are planning to start BSc Computer Science in the new academic year. Ramanujan College will start BSc in Operational Research course.
