The first cut-off list for admission to Delhi University’s merit-based undergraduate programmes is expected on Tuesday. Applicants would then have until Thursday, June 21, to get their documents verified and get admitted to the college where they have cleared the cutoff.

This year, the cut-offs are expected to rise for humanities and commerce courses, with a possible marginal dip in cut-offs for science courses.

As most of the applicants are from the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE), and this year more number of students scored above 95%, officials had said that this is likely to increase the cutoffs as well. However, with fewer students applying for science courses, the demand is lower and hence the cutoff may be lower here.

The most popular courses this year are BA(H) English, BA programme and BA(H) Political Science. Last year, the cut-offs for these courses were between 90%-98.75%, 85%-97% and 90%-99% respectively. The cutoffs in the first list for BCom and BCom (H) were between 91%-98.25% and 93%-98% respectively.

The most popular science course this year are BSc (H) Mathematics and BSc (H) Chemistry, which are the 12th and 13th most popular course choices overall. The cutoffs ranged between 89%-97.5% and 90%-98% respectively for these courses last year.

The first such list of cutoff percentages will be announced on Tuesday, and anybody who clears will be admitted. There will be no “first come, first served” policy.

If they clear the cutoff, then the applicant should first log on the online admission portal and select the college and programme they want, and then take a printout of the registration form. The applicant should then proceed to the college, with all the documents required, and get them verified.

“They should also carry a bundle of self-attested photocopies of all the required documents, in addition to the originals,” said Amrita Bajaj, the deputy dean of students’ welfare.

Students have until June 21, Thursday, to get their documents verified and get their admission approved by the colleges. The applicant will have until 12 noon on Friday, June 22, to pay the admission fees online, and information bulletin adds that the payment should have gone through by this time for the admission to be valid.

“In case you do not get the college of your choice, it does not matter. You should get a seat in a college where you qualify; later on if you want you can cancel your admission and seek transfer if you qualify in a later list,” said Bajaj.
