Due to the ongoing situation across the country, CUCET will be implemented from 2022-23 and hence CUCET is cancelled for DU Admissions 2021. Check detailed Notice

Delhi University- Dream University

This is ranked amongst the top 500 universities in the World. It is recognized for all such titles at the universal level.

It has 77 colleges, and 5 institutes included, making it one of the largest universities in the world. 

Most of these colleges are flag-bearer colleges in India. 20 Colleges of this University have found a place in the Top 50 in NIRF ranking for 2020.

The fee charged by the student is quite nominal. However, they never compromise on placing students to top brands or with a good salary.

Admission to colleges here is quite competitive due to the high cut-off for almost every course.

This is being considered a probable reason for issuing a draft by NEP, which mentions all central or state-level universities have to admit students based on their performance in an entrance exam.

CUCET and Delhi University

Initially, admissions to this University were dependent on a merit basis for most courses. The marks/percentage obtained in 4 subjects (best of four) is taken for admission.

If you opted for BA Business Economics, BMS, or BBA (FIA), appearing for the DU JAT exam is mandatory.

It is expected both these admission criteria will merge with CUCET.
