The Standing Committee of the Academic Council, in its March 17 meeting, recommended that admissions to the varsity be based solely on scores from the CUET.

The University of Delhi’s academic council will meet on Tuesday to discuss changes in the college admissions process in view of the approval of the Common University Entrance Test.

It is proposed that from the next academic year, students are only admitted to bachelor’s degree programs on the basis of scores they obtain on the admission test.
With the implementation of the Common University Entrance Test (CUET), Delhi University (DU) will abolish the previous admission system, which used cut-off announcements based on Class 12 board results.

The DU Academic Council will meet on March 22 to discuss the changes in the eligibility criterion as the varsity has decided to opt for the CUET from the 2022-23 academic year.

The Standing Committee of the Academic Council, in its March 17 meeting, recommended that admissions to the varsity be based solely on scores from the CUET.
According to the minutes of the meeting, the members state that it will not be feasible to include any other criterion based on marks obtained in board examinations.

The minutes stated that members believed the eligibility criterion should be inclusive to invite a large number of candidates from across the country.
“Minimum criteria are to be rescheduled as candidates must have passed the Class XII exam or its equivalent from a single recognized board,” read the minutes of the meeting.

The standing committee was also of the opinion that admission to all redundant seats, but excluding foreign students, would be via CUET.
It was also decided that admission to minority schools such as St. Stephen’s and Jesus and Mary would also be through CUET.

During centralized counseling, according to the reservation policy, separate merit lists are generated for non-reserved and minority candidates.
Until last year, the university opened up barriers to admission to universities of applied sciences. Last year, at least eight colleges had set the limit at 100 percent for admission to various courses.
