The admission process for undergraduate courses at Delhi University is going to begin in a few months. For the first time, a student will have to clear the CUET (Common University Entrance Test) to be eligible for admission to one of India’s premier universities.
According to the latest guidelines, there will be no cutoffs to get admission in DU as students only need to clear Class 12 and CUET to be eligible for admissions.
The proposal to conduct CUET for admissions instead of cutoffs was passed by the varsity’s executive council during their 1st meeting on Friday.
“Merit will be calculated based on a combination of subjects in which a candidate has appeared in CUET as mentioned in the programme-specific eligibility,” the guidelines say.
Admissions in all colleges under the umbrella of DU, including St Stephens, will be carried out through CUET.
The CUET application process will begin in the 1st week of April and the exams will be conducted from the 1st week of July. The question paper is divided into 2 sections. One of them is optional for students who want to attempt in any other language apart from the 13 languages included. The other section is domain-specific where students will have to choose up to 6 domains that they want to pursue in their UG course.
