In previous years, the 100 per cent cut-offs announced by various DU colleges have been slammed as unrealistic and bizarre.

However, for the first time the university saw a dip in the number of applications

This year, a total of 2,50,914 applications were received by the university for the 54,000 seats in 63 colleges, as compared to last year's 2,91,819 applications.

This is for the first time that the university has introduced completely online admission procedure for UG admissions unlike previous years when it used to be both online and offline. The online registration process began on June 1 and will continue till June 22.
