Delhi University will launch two separate portals for admission to undergraduate and postgraduate programs through the common seat allocation system, a senior official said on Tuesday.
He said that the admission process of the university is likely to start by May 20.
Admission to undergraduate and postgraduate programs will be through CSAS (UG) 2023 and CSAS (PG) 2023.
This will be the first time that the university is opting for the Common University Entrance Test for admission to postgraduate programmes. It admitted students in 70 of its colleges through CUET-UG last year.
Students seeking admission in DU will have to appear for CUET (UG)-2023 and CUET (PG)-2023 as well as register on the CSAS UG and PG portal of DU. The official said the university expects the admission process to be “smooth” this year.
“We are all set to take admission in UG and PG programs through CUET. We will launch two separate portals for admission to undergraduate and postgraduate programmes,” the official said.
“Last year, we conducted admission through CUET for the first time. This year the admission (process) will be easier. We are also ready to conduct PG admission for the first time. We are confident about that too.” the officer added.
Registrations for CUET Undergraduate and Postgraduate programs are underway.
Till last week, around 14 lakh applications were received for CUET-UG, a 41 per cent increase from last year’s first edition.
The maximum number of applications have been received for CUET (UG) from Delhi University, followed by Banaras Hindu University, University of Allahabad, Babasaheb Bhimrao Ambedkar University and Jamia Millia Islamia.
CUET (UG) is the second largest entrance exam in the country in terms of applicants. In the first edition of CUET (UG), 12.50 lakh students registered themselves and out of them 9.9 lakh submitted their applications.
The exam is to be conducted from May 21-31.
DU has failed to fill all 70,000 seats in the current academic session, despite best efforts, as seven per cent seats in all its colleges are vacant.
The university had enrolled 11,300 post-graduate students in various courses.
