Delhi University Admission 2020-21

The University of Delhi (DU) has activated the registration link for the admissions to undergraduate, postgraduate, MPhil, and PhD level courses at The registrations link will be activated until July 4. This year, the entire admission process will go online and will be held in a contact-less manner.

In a major change, students will not have to select a preference of subjects or colleges while registering and every applicant will be eligible for all courses and all colleges across DU, based on their merit

This year, trials for sports and co-curricular activities will not be held. Sports, ECA, NCC together marked for 5% supernumerary seats across the varsity. These measures are taken to ensure safety and the least number of students having to visit the varsity campus due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Even as most of the boards including CBSE and UP Board — from where most of the applicants for DU come from — are yet to declare their result for class 12 exams, the registration cycle has begun. Students will be allowed to update their application forms with their marks, once the result will be declared.  Further, the merit-lists will also be declared after the result of CBSE Board exams.

Name of subject in DU form different from your state board?

  • In case the name of the subject as mentioned by the university is different for that in the board, then students will have to get an equivalence certificate from their schools to verify the same. This equivalence certificate must be accompanied by a copy of the syllabus of the paper attested by the principal or head of the institution. The name of the subjects in DU is mentioned as per CBSE curriculum. Further, if the applicant has studied “Botany” and “Zoology” separately, the total of marks in both these papers must be entered in the respective fields for theory and practicals under the heading “Biology” in the field provided in your admission form.

Math is mandatory for these courses

Students who do not have mathematics in class 12 will not be eligible to apply for these courses -

  • BA (H) Economics
  • B.Com (H)
  • BMS
  • BBA
  • BA (H) Business Economics

No ECA trials, marks on this criteria

  • Under the ECA category, no trials will take place. For admission to music courses, students will have to upload their videos which will be accessed by a pane. Marks for physical education courses which will be based on entrance exams and awards and certifications. Further, admissions for NSS and NCC will be counted.

What is the 5% rule? Why is it abolished?

  • Till last year, students who change their streams to apply for BA programme used to face a deduction of five per cent. This year, the admission committee colleges to not make the deduction. While addressing media, Shobha Bagai, dean admissions, said, 'the rule was based on the belief that science students score more than humanities and would take a major chunk of seats in BA programmes which are meant for humanities students. However, now that all studies are going interdisciplinary, the rule does not hold any ground. We also wish to make the entire admission process smooth. Most of the colleges have agreed to this as well.'

Result not out yet? Here is what you can do

  • Most of the students from DU are from CBSE and UP Board, none of the two has released their result yet. For these students, DU is likely to reopen the portal to add their marks later. While now students have been asked to register for admissions, the admissions will begin from August.

One application to be applicable for all courses and colleges

  • Earlier, students would have to select courses and colleges as per choice, however, as the entire process has gone online, as applicants will register, they will be eligible to apply for every course and college. Based on their merit, further, they will be shortlisted. Students will not have to select for the course or college while registering for Delhi University. The rest of the eligibility criteria remains the same but Shobha Bagai asks candidates to read the bulletin of information carefully.
