More than 72,800 applicants out of 80,164 accepted the college and course awarded to them in the first round of allocation from Delhi University, Registrar Vikas Gupta said on Saturday.
Today was the last date for acceptance of places awarded for undergraduate courses in the first merit list. It was extended by one day on Friday.
“As many as 72,865 applicants have accepted their college and course,” the university registrar said.
The University of Delhi (DU) had announced the much-anticipated first list of places on Wednesday, marking the start of the third and final phase of the undergraduate admissions process.
In the context of provisional seat allocation, “assigned seat” refers to a unique combination of program and college.
At DU, admissions to 79 undergraduate programs in 67 colleges, departments, and centers are first made through Common University Entrance Test (CUET) scores.
Until last year, admissions were through merit lists based on Class 12 grades, which saw thresholds soar. The university used to announce up to seven cut lists each year.
The number of seats in DU colleges is 70,000, but the university has allocated additional seats in the non-reserved (OBC-NCL and EWS) and reserved (SC, ST and PWBD) categories in the first list, carrying the number at 80,164.
