Delhi University is seeking to commence the admission procedure by holding the common entrance test. The concerned authorities of the university have decided to carry out the admission process with 50 percent on the Central University Common Entrance Test and 50 percent on board results. With this, the officials will give admissions to the eligible candidates to central universities. The Central Government has set up a committee recently. PC Joshi, the Vice-Chancellor of the Delhi University is part of the committee.
The committee has been set up to consider the issue of holding common entrance test at the undergraduate level only from the next academic year in central universities to provide a single platform for admission.’ PC Joshi further said, ‘The center is coming out with the CUCET, for which several committee meetings have been held and it will be finalized shortly. Once that is done, we will be having weightage for both CUCET and board examinations with 50 percent for each.’
Every year, Delhi University organizes the admission procedure based on sky-high cutoff marks. In the previous year, Lady Shri Ram College for Women had 100% cutoffs for 3 programmes and 30 courses across colleges had cutoffs of more than 99 percent. The common entrance test is likely to clear out the irregularities of the common cut-off system. Sometimes, unevenness might be caused by various school education boards following different systems of scoring students. For DU admissions in 2019, the first cutoff list had been issued in August.
