Speaking to Education Times, Rajiv Gupta, Chairman, Admission, DU, said, “Usually for a single seat, depending on the type of course, we get four to six applications. In most departments, 50% of the seats are filled by students who are admitted on merit basis, the remaining 50% are filled by students who have passed the admission test. ”
This trend is prevalent in subjects including history, political science and applied sciences. The second cut-off for the PG course is expected this week because of an unforeseen delay that prevented some departments from starting the admission process. “We are working on a revised schedule, based on which the second list will be announced this week and the third next week,” Gupta added.

“Out of all PG courses, 50% seats are reserved for merit-based admissions because we have our own honors courses in DU colleges. The remaining 50% seats are left to be filled by students from other parts of India. For PG courses, there is no fuss as applicants are mature enough to choose the courses. There are no additional admissions to PG courses because the number of seats is fixed and PG courses are available by department, not by college. ”
The second cut-off list will fill 70-75% of the seats and the semester of PG courses will start from December 1, 2021.
DU Vice Chancellor Yogesh Singh said, “Specialized courses including Physics, Chemistry, Zoology, Botany and Microbiology, Biochemistry, Mathematics and Computer Science are popular. Admission to PG courses is more convenient, as opposed to UG courses where the number of applications is huge. Most graduates diversify after graduation Many students diversify their career options, such as preparing for competitive exams or joining a business. The number of applications for PG courses has halved. ”
Dean of DU College Balaram Pani said, “PG admission depends on the admission test. Political science is one of the most popular courses, as graduates from any stream can apply here if they pass the entrance exam. For other courses, students have to have the same course at UG level. ”
