DU conducts admission through the Common Seat Allocation System (CSAS) in three phases, namely:
Students are advised to select as many programs as possible. In the candidate's best interest, it's advised to choose maximum programs and programme+college combinations.
It is advisable that the candidate must fill out the CSAS (UG)-2023 form carefully.
The university will auto-calculate the program-specific merit score per the eligibility criteria, and you must confirm your scores before choosing the preferences.
Only "normalized scores" by NTA will be considered for DU counselling to prepare the merit list.
Consider the following example:
|UG Programs||Student A subjects||Student B subjects||Normalization Score|
|BA Hons Political Science||Hindi, Chemistry, Physics, Biology||English, Physical Education, History, Sociology||662.15|
|BA (Hons) Economics||Hindi, Maths, Chemistry, Physics||Not eligible||583.32|
|BA (Hons) Spanish||Hindi, Chemistry, Physics, Biology,||English, Physical Education, History, Sociology||662.15|
Check the video from the SuperGards channel to understand how to calculate the normalization score, as this is the score that will be calculated for the counselling process.
