DU Admissions, DU UG Merit List 2022: The Delhi University (DU) yesterday released the first merit list for admissions to undergraduate courses at 5 pm. The merit list is based on CUET score for undergraduate admissions and is available at the official website — du.ac.inMeanwhile, the Supreme Court has asked St. Stephen’s College to follow the admission procedure prescribed by the Delhi University.
DU welcomed the order of the Supreme Court and said that aspirants will not face any issue and the undergraduate admissions will be conducted as per schedule.
Earlier, the merit list was supposed to release on Tuesday (October 18) but was postponed to Wednesday (October 19) after the Supreme Court said that it will hear the plea by St. Stephen’s College on Wednesday. The Delhi University college had filed a plea against the Delhi High Court order against the state court’s decision of not allowing St Stephens college to conduct interviews, along with CUET score for admissions. The DU college wants to assess a candidate based on interview, along with the CUET score, but the state high court had ordered the college to rely completely on CUET marks.
This is the first time the university is holding admission process on the basis of CUET score, which has also caused some delay in commencement of the academic year. According to the schedule released by the university, the first semester will start in November 2022 and end in March 2023.
Delhi University started ECA (Extra Curricular Activities) admissions 2022-23 from October 18 and conclude on October 27. Candidates will have to report for physical trials for admission to undergraduate courses-ECA supernumerary quota.
“The university allocated 80,164 seats across various categories. By 10 am on Thursday, 49,620 candidates had accepted the seats allocated to them,” Dean of Admissions Haneet Gandhi said.

A total of 520 foreign students have been admitted by Delhi University across undergraduate, postgraduate and PhD courses this academic season, a decline of over 27.5 per cent from the previous year.
The Delhi University (DU) postponed the release of the first merit list in the late hours of Monday. The list was deferred after the Supreme Court Monday said it will hear a plea by St Stephen’s College against Delhi High Court on admissions to the college on Wednesday. Now, the court has instructed the college to admit non-minority students on the basis of CUET score, and not interviews.
A college can decline a candidate's application only because of five reasons:
— Non-fulfilment of minimum eligibility by candidate
— Non-fulfilment of subject mapping criteria
— Non-fulfilment of programme-specific eligibility by candidate
— Invalid category documents or certificates
— Non-response to query raised by colleges
This year, Delhi University’s Ramjas College has been labelled as the most popular college with BCom being as the most popular course at the college. A total of 56560 students applied for the commerce programme.
After Ramjas, Kirori Mal College was the second most favoured college, followed by Sri Venketeswara College, Delhi College of Arts and Commerce, and Shaheed Bhagat Singh College respectively. Read full report here

— Choose open universities over regular colleges
— Appear for competitive exams
— Consider going abroad for higher studies
— Pursue ‘underdog’ courses
— Take a drop year
Vice-chancellors of some of the top state universities pointed to what they said was a lack of standardisation in the entrance examination, and said they would rather rely on their old admission process. Read full report by Deeksha Teri
