University of Delhi (DU) recently issued a press release on the official website du.ac.in, providing an overview of the admission process against the 1st cut-off list. The university is in process of completing the first round of merit-based admission 2021. As per official reports, a total of 60,904 candidates had applied for UG courses in various colleges. Out of which, 46,054 students belonged to CBSE while the remaining belonged to other education boards in the country. Thus, 75.6% of the total students belonged to the central education board. Now that the admission process against second-year cut-offs is about to begin, here are all the important statistics of the previous board.
As per the official press release, students from various education boards successfully gained admission to colleges affiliated with DU, by the end of October 07, 2021. These students and their corresponding boards are as follows –
31172 – Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE)
2635 – Kerala Board of Higher Secondary Education
1540- Board of School Education, Haryana
1429 – Council for Indian School Certificate Education (CISCE)
1301 – Board of Secondary Education, Rajasthan
DU in its press release, went onto specify its policies while functioning as a central university. Accordingly, the board recognises and values the academic performance of all students, irrespective of the education board they belong to. This year again, this uniformity was maintained by admitting students only on the basis of merit. In light of this, the board condemns any fake news claiming that DU favors students belonging to specific boards.
Due to its long legacy of quality education, teaching and research, students across the country aspire to study at Delhi University. Hence, it is the responsibility of university officials to provide an equal admission field for students coming from Indian states as well as abroad.
After the successful conduction of DU 2021 admission process against the first cut-off list, authorities are now in process of conducting the second admission round. As per official reports, a total of 36,130 students have been admitted to DU-affiliated colleges so far. This figure is expected to increase considerably by the end of second counselling round.
Students who have applied for admission against the second round are instructed to visit the individual college websites for the cut-offs. These marks will be uploaded later on the official website of DU i.e., du.ac.in. Candidates must create a list of colleges that have a greater chance of providing admission before the counselling round begins on October 11, 2021. They will have around 3 days’ time to apply for admission to all these colleges. Thus, to guarantee admission to a reputed college, shortlisting colleges first is the way to go.
