Till now 59,401 students have been admitted to undergraduate programmes across Delhi University colleges, a senior official said on Sunday.
The third round of seat allocation in the university ended on Thursday. While over 2,000 students withdrew their admission, more than 14,000 seats are vacant, DU Dean of Admission Haneet Gandhi said.
These seats will be filled up through spot rounds of seat allocation.
“As many as 59,401 students have been admitted to Delhi University colleges. Over 14,000 seats are vacant. Over 2,000 students have withdrawn their admission. We have also issued a list of vacant seats for the first spot allocation round of CSAS (Common Seat Allocation System)," Gandhi told PTI over the phone.
There are 70,000 seats in the university’s undergraduate programmes.
In the third round of the CSAS, students were also admitted to all supernumerary quotas, including Extra Curricular Activities (ECA), sports, Children/Widows of Personnel of the Armed Forces (CW) and Kashmiri migrants.
“As many as 1,001 students have been admitted through sports quota, 438 students in ECA and 1,372 in CW," Gandhi added said.
Candidates can apply for the first round of spot allocation from November 21 to November 22. The first spot allocation list will be released on November 23.
The candidates can accept the allocated seats between November 24 and 26.
The last date for online payment of admission fees is November 27.
Unlike regular CSAS rounds, seats allocated in a spot admission round will be final. They will not be upgraded in any subsequent round of the spot admission system, Gandhi said. The university will put out information about vacant seats under each programme and a candidate will be able to select only one programme, he said.
The allocations will be done according to availability of seats, programme-specific merit, order of preference of college and category.
DU’s admission process, which began on September 12, is being conducted in three phases – application process, preference filling and seat allotment-cum-admission.
This year, the university is admitting students through the Common University Entrance Test (CUET) instead of their Class 12 marks.
