One of the attractive universities among the students in Delhi University. DU is one of the prestigious universities in India and also secured the rank in the list of top 500 universities in the world. Like every year this year too, Delhi University has attracted Lakhs of students for admission and the most important thing regarding Delhi University is that it maintains the great gender diversity as it offers relaxation to the female candidates.
The Delhi University entrance exam (DUET) registration date has been extended till 31 August 2020. The National Testing Agency (NTA) has a responsibility to conduct an entrance exam on behalf of the DU. Candidates who were willing to apply for the exam could visit the official web portal as the window was open for admission to various UG and PG courses offered by the university.
Due to the outbreak of the Coronavirus, the registration window was kept open so longer than the usual year. Last year the window was closed within a month, University’s official said.
University has declared that the DUET entrance exam is likely to be held in the month of September 2020 this year due to the increasing case of COVID-19. The university has announced that the entrance exam for various courses should be conducted from 6 to 11 September 2020.
DUET 2020 Eligibility Criterion-
Aspiring students who want to enrol their self in Delhi University Entrance Exam 2020 must ensure that they meet the eligibility criterion for the willing course. Course eligibility criterion of different courses varies with each other. University will allow only those students who meet the criterion and the candidates whose application form do not meet the eligibility criterion are subjected to disqualification from appearing in the admission process.
This year the procedure of the conducting entrance exam is a little bit different from the usual year due to the pandemic. DU has begun the admission process for the various program offered by its affiliated college. DU application process is conducted in online mode. This year the university has a single application platform for cut off based as well as entrance exam based course.
People have a fear of getting the infection so that the university has decided not to open offline classes till November for the safety of students. While in 2019, 2.58 Lakh applications had been received by DU, this year the date has increased to 3.53 Lakh.
As we are tolerating the global pandemic the physical process of admission is not possible, so the university has decided to make the whole process of admission online and making sure that students do not suffer.
The question is rising in the mind of many students that what would be the expected cut-offs and when are the classes to start. In reply the query of many students, Dean Admission Shobha Bagai said that cut-offs are not expected before the first week of October, and classes are not expected to begin before November. Almost 80% of students are from CBSC. “We have also asked state boards to give us a link to their results so that we proceed accordingly and once we get details of marks, students would be given to college and they will arrive at the cut-offs,” she added.
Allotment of colleges-
Once the cut-offs are released, a candidate will be required to pick a college and course to which they are eligible on their portal. “Once they select, the data will go to the head of the department in the respective colleges and they will be required to verify all the mentioned documents. After the completion of document verification, they will approve it and it will then go to the Admission Committee convenor of the college and finally the principal or dean. After final approval, the student will be allowed to pay the fee online and the process will be completed,” Shobha Bagai said.
