Delhi University on Monday said the Registration for UG admissions process for undergraduate admissions will begin from late July rather than July 15 as stated earlier as Class 12 board results are still awaited.
Rajeev Gupta, Chairperson of DU’s admissions, told The Hindu: “The Registration for UG admissions process for the undergraduate admissions is probably going to start from the third or fourth week of July. it’ll not begin on July 15 because the results won’t be out by then. The Supreme Court has given a deadline of July 31 for the results to be declared therefore the process also will begin a couple of days before the results are announced.”
“It are going to be started a couple of days before the results are declared in order that aspirants can refill basic details then update other details once the results are declared,” said Mr. Gupta.
Reacting to concerns from DU aspirants regarding the standards to be used for admissions, Mr. Gupta said no decision was taken regarding the doorway test because it was to be decided by the Ministry of Education. Several students had earlier, taken to social media expressing concerns about the likelihood of an entrance test this year.
“For now, we are going ahead with the merit-based admissions, and that we are preparing accordingly like previous years. As for the CUCET, it’s the Ministry’s call, Registration for UG admissions and therefore the decision will come from there. If they provide the nod then DU will decide accordingly,” said Mr. Gupta.
First-year classes for the new batch are likely to start in November, the university said.
