Delhi University (DU) will announce the second seat allotment list for admission to undergraduate programs tomorrow, Sunday, October 30, an official said. The allocated seats for candidates in the second round will be open for two days, that is, until November 1.

A total of 59,100 candidates have secured admission in the first round of Delhi University seat allotment. After that, the university published the list of vacant seats for the second round on its official website—admission.uod.ac.in.

Candidates were given two days to opt for the upgrade and reorder their preferences. About 60% of them chose to go for a higher “college combination programme”, a university official told PTI, adding that more than 25% of the 59,100 candidates had frozen their seats.

“Based on seat availability, the University will announce CSAS Round II at 5:00 PM on Sunday, October 30, 2022. For the second round of allotment, candidates must accept their allotted seat between 10:00 AM on Monday, October 31, 2022 and 4:59 PM on Tuesday , November 1,” he told PTI.

In the first round, the university allotted 80,164 seats under various categories.

The number of seats in DU colleges is 70,000, but the university has allotted additional seats in unreserved (OBC-NCL and EWS) and reserved (SC, ST and PWBD) categories in the first list, taking the number to 80,164. More than 72,800 candidates out of 80 164 accepted the college and the course assigned to them.

The university announced that in the first round of seat allocation, each course in each college will reserve 20% additional seats for candidates from non-reserved categories – OBC-NCL and EWS – and also 30% in SC, ST and PWBD reserved categories.

In the University of Delhi, admissions to 79 undergraduate programs in 67 colleges, faculties and centers are for the first time through the Common Entrance Test (CUET).

Until last year, admissions were through merit lists based on class 12 marks, which have grown dramatically. Up to seven department lists were announced by the university every year.
