DU Admissions 2022: Over 36% Students Apply for Upgradation in Delhi University

DU admissions 2022: More than 36 per cent of the 59,100 candidates who secured admission in the first round of Delhi University seat allotment have applied for an upgrade to their highest preference of ‘program + college combination’, from from Wednesday evening.

According to Delhi University, 21,312 candidates have opted for an upgrade.

The university yesterday opened a two-day window from Wednesday that allowed those who gained admission to undergraduate courses to update their highest preference of “combination program + university”. The upgrade option will not be available to those who have been allotted their first course and college preference, the official said.

There are over 6,500 candidates who have been allocated their first course and university preference.

Choosing the “update” option means that the candidate agrees to be considered for an offer of admission to a combination of program + university of their highest preference in the subsequent round. A candidate who opts for “upgrade” may also reorder program+university combinations with a higher preference than assigned.

Delhi University’s first round of seat allotment concluded on Tuesday, with around 59,100 candidates sealing their admission to degree programs by paying fees. The varsity released an updated list of vacant seats on Wednesday.

Some courses like BA Economics in Hindu College and BA Program (History + Political Science) in Aryabhatta College have no seats available. Most of the seats in popular colleges of Delhi University North Campus like Hindu and Miranda House have already been filled.

Similarly, in St. Stephen’s College, there are only a few places left for people with disabilities in several courses. Unreserved seats are vacant only in BSc (Hons) Physics (five) and BSc (Hons) Chemistry (two) at the prestigious university. At Miranda House College, all places in over 20 courses are taken.

The university, however, said the number of vacancies could change due to conciliations, withdrawals and cancellations. Based on the availability of seats, the university will declare the second round of Central System of Seat Allotment (CSAS Round-II) on 30th October.
