Unlike Delhi University colleges, which give a slight relaxation in the steep cut-offs to students applying for admissions under the Sports Category, Jamia Millia Islamia – also a centralised university – takes in students on the basis of past sports achievements.

The course cut-offs for Jamia range between 50-60 per cent, which are way lower than the DU cut offs, as they conduct written exams for all courses. There is five per cent reservation for students applying under the sports quota for all courses barring the engineering disciplines.

Besides a five per cent relaxation on the cut-offs, students applying under the sports quota are also exempted them from written tests. Based on the performance certificates of the students at the state, national and international level, the trials are conducted for 12 games.

The application form can be collected from and submitted to the Office of the Games & Sports, Jamia Millia Islamia, latest by July 6. The final list of selected candidates will be displayed on July 30.
