UG Cut-off Schedule 2021 To Be Out by Next Week, Reports Say

The schedule for the DU cut-off lists 2021 is likely to be released next week, as per the reports. Read ahead to find out more details about Delhi University’s (DU) 2021 cut-off lists.

The schedule for cut-off lists for admission to Undergraduate Courses in Delhi University for the academic session 2021 is expected to be released next week. The schedule will be decided after a series of meetings of DU officials and college Principals, as per the Press Trust of India (PTI). October 1, 2021, is the tentative day of release of cut-offs as of now; the date was shifted to accommodate the students appearing for improvement or compartment exams. 

We will finalise the cut-off schedule very soon. October 1 is a tentative date for the first cut-off. We plan to release the cut-off on that day. We will be holding meetings with college principals and nodal officers to finalise the schedule.

Rajeev Gupta, chairman of the university’s admission committee, told the media

Most of the college principals have maintained anonymity while sharing their opinions with the press. One principal said that they are yet to receive the data of applications from the university and will decide accordingly. Meanwhile, another principal said that they have started holding meetings to analyse DU cut-off trends for 2021 at their level. 

With anonymity maintained, most DU principals are of the opinion that DU cut-off lists for 2021 are expected to be higher than the last year’s, owing to the huge number of applicants and the increasing number of students with marks above 95 per cent in the CBSE board exams. 

This year, the Delhi University (DU) received more than 2.87 lakh applications for Undergraduate Courses, and around 2.87 lakh students eagerly await the lists with prayers and hopes.

The highest number of applicants come from the CBSE board with 2.29 lakh applications. CBSE is followed by the Board of School Education Haryana with 9,918 applications and CISCE Board after that with 9,659 applications.

Admissions under the ECA and Sports quota will be done in an online mode like last year.
