The Ambedkar University has decided to issue a ‘merit list’ this year for its undergraduate admissions, ditching the earlier system of cut-offs. The university saw a 173.85 percent increase in its undergraduate applications this year, with the addition of 200 seats in the new Karampura campus.
While the increase in the number of applications is a factor, the university said it was considering shifting to a ‘merit list’ as it is a “better principle” of admission.

“In case of cut-offs, you have to admit everyone who meets the cut-off, but a merit list will be different. It will be a list of students, 20 percent more than the number of seats allotted for a course,” said Sanjay Sharma, Dean of Student Services.
“If a course has 50 seats, we will release a list of students with slightly more than 50 seats, so that if some students drop out, others on the wait-list can get in,” he added.
