The highest number of applications i.e. more than 90 per cent of total applications received for the Undergraduate (UG) programme of Delhi University (DU) for the academic session 2018-19 is from the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE).

As per the official data released by DU on Monday, out of 2,78,574 applicants who have successfully submitted their UG application, 2,49,694 are from CBSE followed by Board of High School and Intermediate Education Uttar Pradesh, from which 22,266 students have applied. Next in fray is Haryana Board of School Education and Council for the Indian School Certificate Examination with 10,858 and 9,681 applicants respectively.

On the other hand there were 7,573 applicants from Bihar School Examination Board followed by Board of Secondary Education Rajasthan from which 4,440 applicants were received. A total of 3,856 students registered from the National Institute of Open Schooling. 2,369 applicants are from Board of Secondary Education Madhya Pradesh followed by 2317 applications from other boards.

Among other boards, there are 2000 applications from Kerala Board of Higher Secondary Education, 1484 from Telangana State Board of Intermediate Education, 1434 from J & K State Board of School Education.

The online registration process for the Undergraduate program of DU started on 15 May and lasted till 7 June. The admission process will kick-start with the announcement of first cut-off on 19 June and subsequent cut-offs later on. About three days time will be given after the announcement of each cut-off for verification of documents and admission.

The DU has planned to come off with only five cut-offs this year in its bid to cut-short the lengthy admission process and unrealistic cut-offs. An applicant can take admission only in one course and in one college at any given time.

In case an admitted student wishes to obtain admission in a different college or course (for which she/he has applied at the time of registration) the student shall withdraw/cancel the admission in the existing course/college, by approaching that college to cancel the admission. Only after the college approves the cancellation of the admission and returns the original certificates to the student, the student can proceed to take admission in the other programme/college. Admission fee will be adjusted automatically and the student will pay only the balance fee, if it is more than already paid fee in the previous college. In case the fee is lesser than already paid, the balance shall be refunded to the applicant's account or to an account declared by the applicant as per the College/University rules after the admissions are closed.
