The University of Delhi on Friday said it has launched a preference counting window by college on the admission portal where applicants can see the number of people who opted for a particular program in a college to enable students to make informed choices.
“This tally is updated every two hours to help applicants get real-time data and information on which college programs and preferences other applicants are opting for. Applicants are advised to continue to refer to this window and make informed choices,” the university said.
In a statement on Friday, the university said it observed that some applicants did not adequately optimize the available preference provisions offered to them. “While indicating their preferences, candidates opt for fewer choices when they are eligible for more. For example, if an applicant has received 1,469 programs and college preferences from the university, they should select all combinations to receive the maximum benefit from the award rounds,” the statement said, adding that applicants are advised to select the maximum number. program + college combinations to facilitate their allocation according to the rules of the CSAS (Common Seal Allocation System).
As part of the second phase of the admissions process, students must choose their courses and college combinations. The university added that the candidate’s saved preferences will be automatically locked at 4:59 p.m. on October 10.
CSAS was launched by the university this year as it moved to admissions through the Common University Entrance Test (CUET) instead of depending on cut lists based on Class 12 scores.
