As the admission season of the Delhi University nears it’s climax, about 59,401 students have been admitted to undergraduate programmes across colleges. As per the varsity schedule, the third round of seat allocation in the university ended on Thursday.

With almost 2,000 students withdrawing their applications these seats will now be open for the spot rounds of seat allocation.

“As many as 59,401 students have been admitted to Delhi University colleges. With more than 14,000 seats still vacant and over 2,000 students having  withdrawn their admission. We have also issued a list of vacant seats for the first spot allocation round of CSAS (Common Seat Allocation System),” a senior official said.

There are 70,000 seats in the university’s undergraduate programmes.

In the third round of the CSAS, students were also admitted to all different quotas, including Extra Curricular Activities (ECA), sports, Children/Widows of Personnel of the Armed Forces (CW) and Kashmiri migrants.

The candidates have time between November 24 and 26 to accept the allocated seats. While, the last date for online payment of admission fees is November 27.

Unlike regular CSAS rounds, seats allocated in a spot admission round will be final. They will not be upgraded in any subsequent round of the spot admission system, Gandhi said. The university will put out information about vacant seats under each programme and a candidate will be able to select only one programme, he said.

The allocations will be done according to availability of seats, programme-specific merit, order of preference of college and category. DU’s admission process, which began on September 12, is being conducted in three phases – application process, preference filling and seat allotment-cum-admission.

This year, the university is admitting students through the Common University Entrance Test (CUET) instead of their Class 12 marks.
