about college

Delhi University or DU, is one of the top ranked central universities in India. Not just known for its heritage and legacy, the university is also popular as a budding ground for future intellectuals, thinkers, and policy makers. The University has produced some of the leading names in the fields of Sports, Cinema, Journalism, Politics, and Commerce etc. Indian Prime Minister Narender Modi, Finance Minister Arun Jaitley, TV Presenter Arnab Goswami, Shahrukh Khan and Burmese Diplomat Aung San Suu Kyi are some of the notbal alumni of Delhi University.

Delhi University Admission

Delhi University offers UG, PG, M.Phil., and PhD degrees in a variety of discipline. The admission process for all the degree programs are conducted separately.

The admission to most of the UG courses offered at the University is based on merit. The University invites application in online mode from prospective candidates by the end of the month of May. The beginning of application process for UG courses at DU coincides with the declaration of 10+2 examination results by the CBSE. After the application process is over, the university releases cut off score for separate colleges and courses. There are certain courses such as BBM, BBS etc. for which colleges affiliated with DU conduct entrance exams.

The admission to PG courses at DU is both merit based and through entrance exams. The schedule for PG admission is declared separately by the respective departments on the university website. On the other hand, admission to M.Phil. and PhD courses is entirely based on the performance in an entrance test and interview conducted by the respective department of Delhi University.

DU Online Form

Earlier the university conducted its application process in the offline mode and a candidate had to collect application form from the university counter or help desks at colleges affiliated with DU. This was a long and arduous task for applicants, specially for outstation candidates. To ease out the process, the university has made the application process for UG courses an online procedure. The online form is generally released by the beginning of June every year. Candidates are required to fill in their details and select their preferred courses and colleges in the online mode itself. Application fee can be paid in both online and offline mode (through SBI challan).

The application forms for PG and research courses are also made available online. But for these courses a candidate is required to download the form and submit it at the concerned department in person or by post.

Delhi University Cutoff

After the application process is over for UG courses, the University releases its cut off list. Cut off is the minimum percentage (in best four subjects) required to take admission in a particular course, in a particular college. The University declares subsequent cut off lists until all the seats are filled in the affiliated colleges.

The DU cut off is affected by certain factors such as number of applicants in a year and the highest percentage scored by students in qualifying exam. The university allows relaxation in cut off marks to women candidates, reserved category candidates and to those who apply under the ECA quota.

DU Entrance Exam

Delhi University conducts entrance exams for admission to PG, M.Phil., and PhD degree programs. The entrance exam for some selected UG courses is conducted by colleges respectively.

The entrance test for PG courses is conducted by respective departments of the University. The entrance exam for PG courses is generally held at the Delhi University North campus. The entrance exam consists of both objective and subjective type questions. The maximum marks for entrance test is 100. The merit list for entrance exam is prepared on the basis of marks scored in entrance exam and qualifying examination.

The entrance test for M.Phil. and PhD programs are conducted by the respective departments. The test is subjective in nature and tests a candidate’s ability to understand and analyze concepts related to their subject.
