Admission Guidelines

General Guidelines: Course specific eligibility criteria determine the merit score on which admission to each course is based. Applicants must study these criteria carefully to understand if they qualify.

  1. All academic subjects may be treated as “elective.” The subjects eligible for computation (subject to course-specific criteria) are listed above in List A and List B.

  2. The University may define any other relevant subjects as academic/elective for a particular course.

  3. Merit is calculated through course-specific combinations of marks obtained in the qualifying examination in the “Best Four” subjects for admission to courses through the faculties of Arts, Commerce, Mathematical Sciences, Music, Social Sciences, Applied Social Sciences & Humanities, and course-specific combinations of “Three Subjects” for admission to courses under the faculties of Sciences and Applied Sciences.

Special Instructions for Boards other than CBSE
  1. If a paper's title does not match with what is specified in List A and List B above, it is mandatory for the applicant to provide a content equivalence certificate from the Principal/Head of the Institution last attended, certifying that the paper's content is equivalent to NCERT Class XII syllabus for that paper. This equivalence certificate must be accompanied by a copy of the syllabus of the paper attested by the Principal/Head of the Institution. However, the University of Delhi's decision on the matter will be final and binding.

  2. If the applicant has studied ― Botany and ― Zoology separately, the total of marks in both these papers must be entered in the respective fields for theory and practical under the heading ― Biology in the field provided in your admission form.

The applicant should separately fill into the online Admission Form the marks obtained and maximum marks for theory and practical each, and the totals, as per their mark sheet. In case the theory/practical breakup is not specified, the applicant will be required to enter ― 0 (zero) in the concerned theory/practical fields, and enter only the total in the online Admission Form.

  5. Internal Assessment marks mentioned in the marksheet will not be used for any calculations.

  6. Any discrepancy in the entry of marks pertaining to theory, practicals or totals will be the sole responsibility of the applicant. Your application form may be summarily rejected.
