CUET: DU colleges say admission process is simpler this time | Tech US News


With Delhi University (DU) admitting students based on their CUET results instead of their Class 12 marks, several colleges said the admission process is simpler for them this time.

DU on Wednesday released the much-awaited first seat allotment list in its undergraduate courses. The first round of CSAS (Common Seat Allocation System) list has been released and students have to accept the allotted seats by 21 October by 4:59 PM.

According to Manoj Sinha, Principal, Aryabhatta College, “It’s much easier for colleges and students. Sitting in the comfort of their homes, they can discuss with their peers about which college and course they should choose. There is less chance that DU admission will be divided the seats.”

Till last year, DU conducted admissions based on cut-offs and colleges had to admit students who met the thresholds, even if it meant admitting 100 students for 20 seats, but principals said the scenario has changed now.

“DU is conducting counseling and we will get a list of say 90 or 100 students for 70 places. Earlier the numbers were almost 400. We used to do admissions and also cancel them if students opted out. This time the number is less and there will be fewer cancellations, ” said Manoj Khanna, Principal, Ramjas College.

Gyantosh Jha, principal of Atma Ram Sanatan Dharma College, said earlier colleges had to set restrictions, relax them and then admit students.

“There has always been a fear of over-admission and whether the restrictions will be sufficient, but this time we hope it will be easier,” he said.

This year Delhi University admits students based on CUET results. On September 12, the university released the Common Seat Allocation System (CSAS), its admission and allotment policy.

Admission through CSAS takes place in three stages – submitting an application form, choosing programs and filling in preferences, and allocating and accepting seats.

The university has advised candidates to secure admission to their allotted seat whenever it is offered.
