“DU has informed that it would continue with the admission process which was followed for various undergraduate courses last year. It is not introducing admission through entrance test in any course this year and there are no fresh guidelines in this regard,” a senior HRD Ministry official said.

A senior DU official, who is member of the admissions committee said, “We had made certain recommendations but the varsity has decided not to go ahead with it as the plan requires more feasibility study before it is placed before the statutory bodies.”

The University has already introduced Computer Based Online Registration System from last year for the undergraduate admission process. After registering themselves on DU’s admission portal, the students are required to upload self-attested and scanned copies of their documents after following the instructions and then make the payment online.
