In the newly introduced EWS category, a total of 9091 applications were received for undergraduate admissions.
As usual, most of the applications came from the Central Board of Secondary Education students. As many as 2.05 lakh students applied form CBSE followed by 8,755 applications by UP Board and 8,398 applications by the Council for the Indian School Certification Examination.
Since the number of students clearing CBSE 12 with 95% marks has increased from last year, the DU cut off too has increased, as expected.
Eligible applicants have started to form long queues at multiple colleges of the University to complete the admission process. However, many did express frustration over the delay in the process.
