No more cut-offs, DU to conduct entrance exams for admission

Delhi: The high cut-offs and the hassle of admissions to get into Delhi university will not be seen from next year onwards. The University of Delhi's Executive Council approved the admission process for the academic year 2022-23 through the Central Universities Common Entrance Test, or CUCET, on Friday, December 17.

CUCET was previously accepted by the varsity's academic council as one of the criteria for pursuing admissions in Under Graduate (UG) and Post Graduate (PG) courses beginning in the academic year 2022-23.

The Academic Council has already approved this idea at its meeting. Sixteen members of the Academic Council and two members of the Executive Council voted against it. According to a senior university official, the administration will immediately begin working on the examination modalities.

This includes deciding whether the entrance exam will be performed internally by DU or by an external agency or whether the Central Universities Common Entrance Test will be used. The committee recommendations, which have been approved by the University's decision-making bodies, do not specify whether an entry would be given a full or partial weighting in admissions.

The Executive Council has also supported paid maternity leave for ad hoc teachers and contractual staff, a long-standing demand among the University’s ad hoc faculty body.
