It’s that time of the year when applicants from across the country start the race to get admission in their preferred college in Delhi University (DU). But with the process come a host of confusions — about the colleges best for a particular course to queries, in general, about admissions.

Worried already? No need. Here’s your guide to acing undergraduate admissions. Check DU website for updates.



Create a new account after clicking the ‘New Registration’ link. Fill in details like your name, e-mail id, phone number. Details once filled, will be irreversible to change.

Log in through the new account you just created and fill in details according to each section.

The nine sections that you need to know about are:

Section 1: This is where you put in your personal details. Other information with reference to Ward quotas or Kashmiri Migrants quota and bank account details will also be required to be filled in this section.

Section 2: This one is for your academic details. For those who haven’t still received their qualifying exam results, a provision allows them to apply by providing their roll numbers and the board details. The varsity will take the results from the board directly, as and when released.

Section 3: This one is for all applicants seeking admissions into merit-based courses. One can apply for as many courses as they want under this section.

Section 4: This section applies to those seeking admission into entrance-based courses, on the basis of eligibility. Entrance exams shall be conducted for the following courses in select colleges only:

Section 5: This is for those applying through Sports quota. As opposed to last year, when you could only upload only one certificate, a total of three best certificates will be allowed this year.

Section 6: This is for the extracurricular activities quota (ECA). For each ECA that you apply for, you’ll have to pay an extra fee of ₹100.
