Class 12th Board examinations are over and the college Admission’s hustle-bustle is around the corner. Like every year, this time also there would be a large no. of students who are willing to take admission to Delhi University which is one of the top-ranked central universities in India with a total of about 77 colleges affiliated to it. So To make matters easy for you here’s an admission procedure guide for all those who are willing to take admission in DU.
DU Undergraduate registration process will start by the end of April 2019. The admission to the University of Delhi is done on the basis of merit for some courses online entrance examination for others. The registration for courses for which admission will be conducted through the online entrance examination will start in June 2019.
DU, for the first time, plans to conduct the whole process in two steps. In order to avoid repeated registration of applicants, the portal will reopen for two weeks which will allow candidates to edit their courses, marks, etc.
The University of Delhi offers a variety of 85 undergraduate courses which include Education, Computer Science, Engineering, Information Technology, Manufacturing Process, and Automation Engineering, Biotechnology, Unani Medicine, Ayurveda, etc. Other courses include B.A. (Honours) in Humanities, B.A (Pass), B.A Business Economics, Bachelor of Management Studies (BMS), Bachelor of Business Administration (BBA- Financial Investment Analysis), Bachelors of Elementary Education, B.Sc (Honours) in Science stream, Bachelor of Science (in Physical Education, Health Education, B.A. (Honours) Multimedia and Mass Communication
It also offers over 90 certificate courses and 28 Diplomas.
For those who are unaware, DU also offers admission on the basis of Extracurricular activities and Sports quota which differs from college to college. For ECA and sports quota admissions, the cut off list and the number of seats will no longer be linked to one another. Since the admission of these students has nothing to do with the cut off lists, the authorities will begin trials for the same shortly.
The deduction of 5% for stream change will reduce to 2% this year. Also, the university is trying to CBSE to directly use their database for getting mark sheets which could help in speeding up and smooth flow the process.
For merit-based admission, one can refer to the last year’s cutoffs to get a fair idea of the college and course they can expect to get. The cutoffs every year goes up and down so no exactness could be provided through last year’s cutoff, just a fair idea could be excavated.
Aspiring students are suggested to regularly visit and check the official website of Delhi University i. e, du.ac.in and check for the official notification of Undergraduate Admissions 2019 and also refer the same for further updates, cutoffs, registration, etc.
What is SOL in DU?
The School of Open Learning (SOL) in Delhi University offers admission to the students in different UG and PG courses offered by the DU colleges associated with it. There is a difference in a regular college of DU and SOL in DU. The difference lies in the fact that SOL provides admission in correspondence courses where you don’t actually have to attend the classes regularly. Whereas in regular colleges you have to maintain attendance in order to take the internal/external exams. SOL is good for those who didn’t get admission in the regular college, those who have dropped their studies, working people who want to change/advance their career and for those who are preparing for govt. exams and need a professional degree too.
Attendance doesn’t matter in SOL and exams are held once in a year.
Aspiring students could visit sol.du.ac.in for more information on the DU SOL program.
All the students are also requested to stay cool and calm during the whole procedure and regularly check for updates about the process. The whole process overall is very student-friendly.
