Delhi University will begin the first semester for newly admitted undergraduate students on November 1 irrespective of whether all rounds of allocating seats to candidates through its new admission process are completed, Vice-Chancellor Yogesh Singh said on Tuesday.
On Monday, DU launched its common seats allocation system for candidates to register for admission through their Common University Entrance Test (CUET) results. The university has not released a date sheet or timeline for the three-phase admission process through this system. DU is aiming to close registrations by October 3 and conduct the first round of allocation of seats by October 10-12.
Since then, admissions have been delayed each year because of the pandemic; with registrations only beginning on September 12 this year, it is the most delayed yet.
