With the first phase of the University of Delhi’s undergraduate admissions for merit-based courses on the verge of culmination, aspirants are racing to finish the online formalities to become eligible for admission in the varsity. However, the University has decided to extend the last date for undergraduate registration to June 13th, 2017, till 5 pm.
The registrations commenced on May 22nd, with various technical glitches and operational delays being experienced over the period of these twenty days. The admissions process, which was completely online, allowed candidates to fill out their personal and academic details on the portal. They could select the courses, choose the ECA and sports quota categories, and upload the necessary documents online as a part of the registration process.
The admissions cycle also witnessed an obstacle due to the slight delay in the announcement of Class XII Board examinations result by the Central Board of Secondary Education, which were released on May 28th, 2017.
The varsity currently offers 60 undergraduate programmes, with more than 56,000 seats for candidates. The undergraduate admissions process for entrance-based courses was scheduled to begin on May 31st. However, the date has been postponed and the final timeline is yet to be announced.
Keeping in mind the functional and logistical delays, the University has announced that the undergraduate merit-based admissions cycle will end on June 13th, offering a one-day extension to candidates to fill up the online forms.
