The University of Delhi has not yet started the admission process for UG courses. It was earlier expected that the DU Admission Form for UG courses will release on May 20, 2019, however, it got delayed. Now, the expected date for the release of the DU UG 2019 Application Form is May 24, 2019. Students will be able to apply online at du.ac.in.
For the delay in the release of DU Admission Forms, Professor Rajeev Gupta on Saturday said they won’t release the forms before Thursday due to the results of the Lok Sabha elections, which will be announced on May 23, 2019.
It was decided that the results of state and central board exams will be declared early in order to allow sufficient time to students to appear for admission in central universities, especially the University of Delhi (DU). CBSE too declared the Class 12th result way before the scheduled date. This delay in the admission process has been keeping the students on their toes.
Last year, the DU application forms were released by May 15 and this year there is no confirmed date of the application process. One question which students have been asking is why are admission forms have been delayed so much? When will the forms release for DU Admission? Rajeev Gupta, the DU admissions committee chairperson, told a newspaper that, “We are trying to incorporate new tech-based initiatives for making the varsity’s admissions process smoother for students. This is why it is causing a bit of delay.”
It is expected that there will a few surprises for the students. One of the major changes is that the varsity is planning to give some extra benefits to students belonging to rural areas. The final decision is yet to be announced, however, the extra benefits to the rural candidates will be provided in the terms for pass percentage. | St. Stephens Admission 2019 to start soon
Candidates are offered admission in UG courses in two ways – Entrance Test or Merit-based. UG entrance exam based courses are BA (Honours) Business Economics, Bachelor of Management Studies, Bachelor of Business Administration (Financial Investment Analysis), B.Tech (IT and Mathematical Innovations), Bachelor of Science in Physical Education, Health Education and Sports, BA (Honours) Multimedia and Mass Communication, 5-year journalism programme among others.
There are also reports that the university has approached the National Testing Agency (NTA) for conducting the DU entrance tests. Now, if NTA will conduct the entrance tests, it is going to be conducted in online mode only. This may delay the admission process further since there are rifts within the varsity on whether or not to take the exam online. | DU Cut Off 2019
