Due to the lengthening of the CUET-UG schedule following exam cancellations at multiple centres last week due to technical issues, the admission process for Delhi University’s undergraduate programmes is probably going to be delayed by “at least a week.”

Originally set to end on August 20, the Common University Entrance Test (CUET)-UG will now end on August 28. All university undergraduate courses will be admitted through CUET. On Saturday, the National Testing Agency (NTA) said that the test, which had been postponed the previous week, would now take place from August 24 to 28 and that new admit cards would be issued.

As CUET was rescheduled, it is anticipated that the admissions process will take an extra week. Over a month will be needed to complete the admissions process, according to a senior Delhi University official. “First-year students’ lessons are now scheduled to start in the first or second week of October, and the admissions process is now anticipated to be finished by September’s end.

The official continued, “Earlier, the university planned to begin the classes by September-end.” The Common Seat Allocation System (CSAS) portal will be open by the third week of August for applicants to submit applications, according to the Dean of Admission Haneet Gandhi, signalling that the admission process is expected to start later this month. The application for admission through the CSAS must be submitted, programmes must be chosen, preferences must be entered, and then seats will be assigned and applicants will be admitted. The CUET score is necessary for the second phase.

Only after the release of the CUET(UG) 2022 results may the second stage of the admissions process started. A candidate must choose the programmes they intend to apply for admission to. For each of the chosen programmes, they must verify the CUET (UG) merit score that is specific to that programme. Seats will be distributed in the third phase based on a merit list. For the first time ever, an entrance exam will be used to determine admissions at the university, where UG cutoffs used to rise dramatically each year. All central institutions would need to admit students using CUET, according to a requirement published by the University Grants Commission (UGC) in March.

Glitches in the second round of the CUET-Undergraduate, which started last Thursday, caused issues for students who were turned back from exam centres. The exam’s first shift was cancelled on Thursday in a number of locations across 17 states, while the second shift was cancelled at all 489 locations. At 50 locations, the exam was cancelled on Friday. The agency postponed the CUET-UG for the day at 53 centres on Friday night in anticipation of a situation such as the one that occurred on Saturday. Exams were cancelled at several centres as a result of “indications of sabotage,” according to UGC Chairman Jagadesh Kumar on Sunday.
