DU Admissions 2021 HIGHLIGHTS: The much-awaited admissions for the University of Delhi (DU) will begin soon. This year too the admission process will be held digitally. Taking a cue from last year, this year the varsity has launched a new website altogether for online registrations. Further, there will be a single registration-cum-application form for all departments, campuses, and colleges.

After much debate, the varsity has decided to do away with the CUCET or common entrance exam and admissions will be held on the basis of class 12 marks. The merit as usual will be calculated based on the best of four marks obtained in class 12. After last years’ 100% cut-off, Delhi University says it will “stabilize” cut-offs this year.

The varsity has released its admission brochure and the online registration programme will begin from July 26 for postgraduate, MPhil, and PhD courses. For undergraduate courses, the application process will open from August 2 and will remain open till August 31. There will be only a single form called “registration-cum-application form” for admission to all colleges, campuses, and departments.

Delhi University usually counts cut-off on the basis of the ‘best of four’ marks obtained in class 12. As a thumb rule it is any four courses including one language, however, for certain courses, having specific subjects in class 12 is a requirement. For instance for economics, class 12 marks of language (any), math, and economics will be considered.
