DUET will be replaced by CUET for DU PG Admission

CUET for PG courses in Delhi University admission. The University of Delhi will be making admission for its PG courses through CUET. The DUET entrance test will be discontinued next year. This proposal was approved during the Delhi University Council meeting on Tuesday.

The change in the admission pattern of postgraduate programmes was proposed by a 10-member committee formed to “suggest a strategy” for PG admissions from 2023-2024.

Under the present system, 50 per cent of admissions are offered directly for students who did their bachelor’s degrees from the university based on their merit in their qualifying examinations. The remaining 50 per cent of seats are filled based on the candidate's ranks in the DUET PG entrance test.

AC approved CUET for PG courses with half of the seats remaining under merit-based admission for students of DU..

NTA will be conducting the CUET PG for Delhi University admission through a single window mechanism as is done for other Central Universities with effect from the Academic Session 2023-24 for all categories who wish to seek admission in the university.

Separate merit lists will be prepared for the candidates who clear the CUET-PG and those belonging to the other category of candidates who previously used to appear in the postgraduate entrance test. While preparing the merit list, priority will be given to a category of candidates who used to appear in the DU entrance test.

While preparing the merit list, priority will be defined as follows:

The committee recommended, 50 per cent of its seats for the PG entrance test and will include the candidates who qualify in this Common University Entrance Test depending upon his/her eligibility for appearing in the test under this category.

The rest of the seats i.e., 50 per cent will be filled by the erstwhile category of candidates who used to seek admission by obtaining an eligible bachelor’s degree from the University of Delhi.
