DU admissions 2020: The registration process for admission to the University of Delhi (DU) will be closed tomorrow – July 4. The number of applications has already exceeded that of last year’s. This year, for the undergraduate courses alone, as many as 2,81,950 or over 2.83 lakh students have registered, however, of these only 1.59 lakh students have submitted the entire application form along with fee for UG courses. The total number of registrations this year is 4,04,315 including postgraduate and MPhil courses.
This is a rise from that of last year. This year, experts believe the competition for admission to prestigious colleges will be tougher since the students who had earlier planned to go abroad would also apply to Indian colleges. The exact impact of this would be known later at the time of cut-off for DU. Those students who have not applied yet can do so at du.ac.in.
