The University of Delhi (DU) has extended the application date for admission to undergraduate courses for academic session 2019-20. With this latest development, students will now be able to apply for the admission till June 22, 2019.
This decision from Delhi University has come after a High Court order which directed the varsity to do the same. Notably, High Court passed the order after hearing pleas against the varsity for effecting change in eligibility criteria just a day before the registrations were to commence.
Observing the case, the court commented that the changes in eligibility criteria have to be made in accordance with law – “which would require a minimum of six months of public notice to the public at large”.
Following the order, varsity extended the date and is now set to release the admission brochure with revised eligibility criteria and other relevant information on its official website. It is highly expected that the brochure will be updated on the website by 5: 00 PM today, i.e. June 17, 2019 (Monday).
Now that the last date of submitting application has been extended, the varsity has also postponed the date for release of first cut off list. It is now expected to be out on June 20, 2019 (Thursday).
Considering the exceptional Class 12th exam results this year, the cut off is expected to be high. In CBSE alone, 94,299 students have scored more than 90 per cent marks. Out of this 17,693 students have scored above 95 per cent marks.
In 2018, Lady Shri Ram College recorded the highest cut off for an undergraduate course, which was 98.75% for B.A. Programme course.
Among the B.Sc. courses, the highest cut off was for B.Sc. Physics (H) at Hindu College at 98% whereas for B.Sc. Computer Science (H) the cut highest cut off was 98%, set by SGTB Khalsa College.
