The registrations for admissions for various courses of Delhi University is likely to begin in the last week of April. As compared to last year, this year the registration would start a month early to avoid the last minute rush for admissions into top colleges.
The early registrations for admissions will start towards end of April and continue till June as usual. Online registration process are likely to begin by third week of April. “There are some dates that are being considered. One of the dates suggested is April 20 but it could be anytime between April 20 and 25”, said one of the members of the admission committee. The university had earlier thought to open the registrations in March but the plan could not materialize.
Unlike last year, where students got only 15 days for registration, this year they would get nearly one and half months for registrations. “Board results are announced in May end but students can start filling the application form in advance. It will give them time to upload all documents and once the results are announced they can just fill their marks,” said the admission committee member.
No Entrance, admissions to be based on Cut Offs

Admission for these courses will be based on the traditional cut off marks. However, entrance will be held for the courses which admitted students of the basis of entrance earlier too.
“There will be no entrance test for any new course. Entrance tests will only be conducted for courses for which we were conducting entrance test earlier also,” an official said.
