DU admissions: What’s Next
Once a seat has been allotted to a candidate in a particular round, he or she has to click on ‘accept’ within the specified date and time if they want to go ahead with the same. Those who accept the seat will have to go through a document verification round. The college will either ‘approve’ or ‘reject’ the provisionally allocated seat of the candidate.
If a candidate doesn’t accept the seat, s/he will no longer be allowed to take part in the subsequent round of allocations. “Only the candidates who are admitted to a Program in a College will be able to opt for upgradation in subsequent round/s," reads the official statement. The upgrade option will not be available for a candidate who has been offered his/her first preferences. Candidates whose seats have been approved will have to pay the admission fee to reserve the seat.
Approximately 70,000 seats in 91 affiliated universities are available each year through the DU admissions procedure 2022. Candidates will only be taken into consideration if they have achieved the DU first cut-off 2022 marks for any undergraduate programme in their desired college.
