DU Colleges defer cutoff announcement; seek clarity on UG structure
Apratim Chatterjee, 24 Jun 2014, #DU

Amid continuing standoff between Delhi University and UGC on UG programme structure, the DU colleges have deferred June 24 cutoff announcement for admission to their undergraduate programme even as DU website changed its FYUP text to Undergraduate Programme on June 23.


Earlier, different DU colleges were scheduled to release their respective admission cutoff on June 24.

The decision for holding back the cutoff announcement was taken after a late evening meeting of DU college principals.  As many as 36 Principals from different DU colleges met on June 23 and decided not to declare the cutoff on June 24. “We have decided to defer our cut-off list for lack of clarity of clarity on the structure of UG programmes. We will declare once an ambiguous directive comes from the competent authorities,” said a Principal who attended the meeting.

Meanwhile, SRCC which had released the admission cutoff for Economics and Commerce on June 23 evening also put the same on hold till further notification. Dr. P.C. Jain, Principal Shri Ram College of Commerce, said, “In view of the resolution passed by the Principals’ Association, Shri Ram College of Commerce has decided to defer the admissions to the B.Com (H) and B.A. (H) 1st year till further orders.”


In a public notification issued on June 23, UGC had said that the 4-year undergraduate programmes (FYUP) launched by Delhi University last year were not in consonance with the National Policy on Education (NPE) and 10+2+3 structure envisaged under it. It said that since DU has not followed the prescribed procedure, it will have to scrap the current structure and bring back the 3-year undergraduate programmes prevalent to FYUP.

On June 20, UGC had issued an order to Delhi University to discontinue with the FYUP and continue with the process of admissions that was in place earlier to the introduction of FYUP.


In response to the order, DU had held a meeting of academic council which on June 21 resolved to comply with the admission structure in accordance with National Policy on Education (NPE).


It, however, also clarified that the present FYUP is already in sync with NPE and the fourth year in FYUP structure was optional for those who wish to get Honours in each discipline. “The fourth year of study is an optional year for those students who wish to obtain a BA Honours/B.Sc Honours/B.Com Honours/B.Tech UG Degree,” the DU officials had noted in their resolution. 


Further to this, Mr. Malay Neerav, Joint Dean Student’s Welfare also added that the students would be admitted into the three year Bachelor’s Degree programme in the Discipline I (Major Subject) and would graduate with the corresponding degree on the completion of three years which is in conformity with the NPE 10+2+3 structure.

If I want to get admission in BSC honours in mathematics in Delhi University on the basis of percentage scored in class 12th , then what all subjects can I register for the calculation of percentage to be written in Merit list ? Can I register with Mathematics, computer and chemistry ?

Apurv 16th Oct, 2019

Hello Anurag, Yes these three subjects are fine but you need to add one more subject in order to complete the best of four percentage. The rule is that you need one subject related to the course you are applying for, one language course(most of the students have english) and other two courses you can select as any two subjects with maximum marks.
