Spelling good news for the undergraduate students, the Delhi University's academic council on Wednesday approved a new process to admit students to undergraduate courses based on Common University Entrance Test (CUET) scores. A per the process, a central portal will be designed for admission to all colleges, and admission will be done as per the rules stated in the Common Seat Allocation System (CSAS), according to news agency PTI report.

Interestingly, a member of the council said, "the academic council has approved the guidelines framed by the standing committee for admitting students to undergraduate courses." According to the guidelines issued by Delhi University, admission through the CSAS will be conducted in three phases, namely submission of the CSAS 2022 application form, selection of programmes and filling of preferences, and seat allocation and admission. Seats will be allocated based on a merit list, it said. 

An official aware of the details told PTI, “under the new system, one centralised portal will be designed for admission to all undergraduate programs of all colleges of the university, and admission will be done as per rules and guidelines in the Common Seat Allocation System." The official further informed that the students will have to make a one-time non-refundable payment towards the CSAS-2022 application fee. Candidates applying under the extracurricular activity (ECA) and/or the sports supernumerary quota will have to pay an additional fee. 

The second phase of the admission process will start after the declaration of CUET(UG) 2022 results. A candidate will have to select programmes in which they want to take admission. They will have to confirm the programme-specific CUET (UG) merit score for all the selected programmes, the report sxtated.

Additionally, the report stated that in the third phase, seats will be allocated through a merit list. If two or more candidates have the same CUET merit score, the candidate with a higher percentage of aggregate marks (for the best three subjects of Class 12) will be given preference. If the score is still tied, the older candidate will be given preference. The entire process will take place through a centralised CSAS portal. For admission through the sports quota, 50% weightage will be given to the CUET score and the rest to a performance-based test, the report said. A person who wishes to withdraw their admission would be charged 1,000, officials said.
