DU admissions 2020: The online application process for admission to Delhi University has been extended. The candidates can now apply till July 31. “This is in continuation to earlier Press Releases dated 20th June, 2020 and 04th July, 2020 regarding University Admissions to Under-graduate (UG), Post-graduate (PG), M.Phil., Ph.D. programmes etc. for the academic session 2020-2021. All eligible applicants are informed that the last date of online registration process of all the courses (UG, PG, M.Phil., Ph.D. programmes etc.) has been extended up to 5 pm 31st July, 2020,” read the varsity release.
The application process had begun from June 20 and was to end on July 4, however, the varsity had last week given an extension for the same. Those who wish to apply for admission at the Delhi University but have not done yet can register at du.ac.in.
The number of applications received is far higher than that of last year. This could be because many students who had planned to study abroad are considering applying to the Indian university. More applications and an increase in the number of 90 percenters in class 12 results can collectively lead to higher cut-offs for admission to varsity.
