Lately, Delhi University had drawn the ire of students for setting multiple goalposts in its post graduate admissions, nearly postponing the schedule twice. In a latest move, it has revised its admissions schedule for undergraduate merit based courses. In a newly published notice on the University website the admissions schedule for undergraduate courses have been revised and the first cut off list which was scheduled to be out on 20th June has been delayed to 24th June. The first cut offs and admissions for the same will now begin from 24th June and will continue till 28th June.

This would be followed by the second cut off, which will start admitting students from 1st July to 4th July. The third and fourth cut off will begin and end on 7th July to 10th July and 13th to 15th respectively.  The fifth cut off would be out on 18th July and will continue to admit students till 19th July. Other than the five cut off lists, further lists will be declared by the University based on the vacancy of seats in the colleges.

While the document verification and approval of admissions would continue from 9:30 AM to 1:30 AM in morning colleges, the timing for evening colleges is from 4PM to 7PM. After the admissions are approved, the applicant would be required to log in to the portal and pay the admission fees by the 12:00 noon of the next day of the given deadline.

This move will affect students who have not yet taken admissions in any other institute and are waiting for the cut offs. “It is quite frustrating as we already lost a lot of time, we are left unsure of joining any other universities for backup”, said Naimisha, an outstation student who has already planned her trip to Delhi.
