Delhi University, one of the most popular and elite universities in the country, witnesses immense competition every year, with every class 12 pass-out seeking to secure a seat for herself/himself. The cutoffs have only increased with every passing year, shocking the applicants throughout the nation.

A new set of changes have been adopted by DU this year for admissions. Here they are:

  1. Around 1,500 seats will be up for grabs through entrance tests for admission to the following courses:
  • Bachelor of Management Studies (BMS)– Available in six colleges, including Shaheed Sukhdev College of Business Studies, Deen Dayal Upadhyay College and Keshav Mahavidyalaya
  • BA (Honors) Multimedia and Mass Communication
  • Bachelors of Business Administration
  • BTech (IT and Mathematics)– Available seats are 40
  • Bachelors of Elementary Education– Available seats are 400

Online registration for the above listed courses had begun from May 13, 2016 and will continue till May 31, 2016. The written entrance tests for all these courses will be conducted between June 19 and 23 and the final results will be announced on or before July 4

 

  1. APPLICATION FORM AND EXAMINATION DATES
  • Application for all courses will be online this year. Apart from regular candidates, applicants from sports and extra-curricular activities also have to apply online
  • Online registration for 54,000 seats on cut-off basis will begin from May 28, 2016 and continue till June 16, 2016
  • There could be an addition of nearly 500 seats to the 54,000 present currently. Following are the colleges that are either introducing new courses or adding seats to the previous ones:

-Bhim Rao Ambedkar College will add 40 seats to History (Hons) that has 872 seats

-Daulat Ram College will start BSc (Hons) adding 46 more seats to the existing number

-Indraprastha College for Women will start BA (Hons) in Sociology and Geography

-Kalindi College is likely to introduce honours courses in Botany, Zoology, Chemistry and Geography

-Aryabhatta College will introduce BSc (Hons) Computer Science and BA (Hons) Psychology

 

  1. NO SEPARATE REGISTRATION FOR ADMISSION IN ST. STEPHEN’S & JESUS AND MARY COLLEGE

All minority colleges under DU will be a part of the centralised admission procedure, as decided by the 24-member committee on May 23, 2016. The two colleges will however have their independent procedures for admission.

 

  1. Three colleges run by Delhi Sikh Gurudwara Management Committee (DSGMC) demand separate entrances as well:
  • Sri Guru Nanak Dev(SGND) Khalsa College
  • Sri Guru Gobind Singh College of Commerce
  • Mata Sundari College for Women

These colleges had asked for a minority status by the Delhi Government and were granted so by the Delhi High Court last year. They have now approached the university for separate admission procedures.
