Delhi University to release simulated list for UG admission today
The Delhi University (DU) will issue its simulated list for various undergraduate courses on Friday. According to officials, the list will be available on the official website and candidates can verify the same at du.ac.in or admission.uod.ac.in. The preference change window will also open on Friday and close on Sunday. Notably, DU ended the application correction window on Thursday.
Why does this story matter?
- Historically, the varsity has been admitting students based on cut-off marks obtained in Class 12 board exams, but this is the first time students will be taken in based on CUET scores.
- The CUET is a single admissions test for all central universities.
- With 14.9 lakh registrations, it is the country's second-largest entrance exam after the National Eligibility-cum-Entrance Test (NEET-UG).
Process to check list
Candidates may see the list by visiting the official website admission.uod.ac.in, according to officials. They must scroll down after landing on the webpage and then click on the link that states 'DU simulated List 2022' (once issued), officials said. On the screen, a new page will open where applicants can review the list. Candidates are encouraged to download the document for future reference.
