DU Admission 2022: 7% of seats remain
DU Admission 2022: Delhi University (DU) has failed to fill 70,000 seats in the current academic session despite its best efforts, as seven percent of seats across all its colleges remain vacant. Saturday was the last day of admissions at the university for the 2022- 23 academic session. Around 65,000 scholars have been admitted to undergraduate courses this academic session, a functionary said. He added that the university has instated 11,300 postgraduate scholars in different courses.
“We’ve been suitable to fill around 65,000 seats across 70 colleges for the academic session. Today was the last day of admissions,” DU’s Dean of admission Haneet Gandhi said. This is the first time that the university admitted scholars through the Common University Entrance Test (CUET), giving up the old practice of taking admissions on the base of the scholars’ Class 12 scores.
Through the new admission process, DU has admitted scholars in 79 undergraduate programs across 67 colleges, departments, and centers. The university unveiled an online platform in September for seeking admission through the Common Seat Allocation System (CSAS), 2022. The admissions through the CSAS will be conducted in three phases – submission of the application form, selection of programs and filling of preferences, and seat allocation and admission. The first phase started on September 12 and the second phase on September 26. In the third phase, seats were allocated through a merit list.
Several rounds for seat allocation were conducted by the DU to insure that the scholars are given a proper chance. The seats are substantially vacant in the off-campus colleges. Most of these colleges are also the ones that have previously struggled to fill the seats. The seats will remain vacant despite the university’s persistent efforts to help with this kind of scenario. The DU admitted 20 percent “extra scholars” under the “unreserved” and Other Backward Classes (OBC) orders and 30 percent in the SC-ST category to fill the maximum number of seats in undergraduate courses in the first round of counseling this year.
