Delhi University is one of the most prestigious institutions in India. Every year, hundreds of thousands of aspirants apply to get a seat in the most reputable and sought after colleges in the country. Due to COVID-19 this year, everything has mostly been delayed, and so was the University’s admission procedure. On 12 September 2020, The University of Delhi opened the portal to make corrections in the DU application form 2020.
Candidates who have registered themselves and want to make a change in their respective applications can grab this opportunity. They can update their class 12th marks or any other essential details till 5 October 2020.
The Delhi University Entrance Test (DUET) was conducted between 6 September 2020 to 11 September 2020. Students should also expect a delay in the first cut-off. The University is planning to release DU first cut off for Undergraduate admissions in the second week of October. The cut-offs are most likely to be declared after the release of class 12th improvement results.
The Times of India quoted Shobha Bagai, Dean of Admissions: “DU will begin admissions from the second week of October. We are waiting for the CBSE to come out with its results.”
The first cut off of DU Admission 2020 was initially expected to release in the first week of October. Bagai further added that the cut off dates are yet to be finalized after a formal meeting, consultations, and deliberations between various stakeholders.
Candidates should note that the correction can only be made in the 12th result and updating of documents. They will not be able to correct email ID, mobile number, gender, and category in the Delhi University application form 2020. After the UG portal closes, the varsity’s PG programs’ application correction facility will be opened.
DU saw an overwhelming increase in the number of applications it received this year. The undergraduate courses saw a rise of almost more than one lakh than the previous year. The number of applications for this year stands at a record of 3,53,919 for admissions to UG courses.
