New Delhi: Those who wish to seek admission at the Delhi University via the Common University Entrance Test– Undergraduate should also apply on the university’s Common Seat Allocation System portal.

The portal would soon start functioning. The executive council has approved the admission guidelines including this criterion.

Three stages
There are three stages in the application process via CSAS portal.

1) The first step is to enter the portal and complete the details. Then the applicant has to pay a non refundable fees. The fee amount is more for those who are applying for the Extra Curricular Activities and sports quota seats.

2) In the second stage enter the preferred course/college options after the CUET result is published. The candidates could submit options for more than one college and course. The applicants must be careful while selecting the options as the merit seats are allowed based on this. After the option has been submitted, then the order of preference cannot be changed.

3) The seat allotment is in the third stage. There would be multiple rounds of allotments. After getting the allotment, the candidate should accept the seat via the portal within the stipulated time. The allotment would be based on the course – college option, the position in the merit list based on CUET score and the availability of seats. Earlier, more than one candidate was admitted to a single seat based on the cut off marks. However, this system has been scrapped this time.

Points to note
The admission may be cancelled if the details about the allotted seat is not accepted on the website, if the candidate has not paid the fees within the stipulated date or has failed to produce the necessary documents in the college.

Candidates who got the first preference seat may not be allowed to transfer to a different college. Meanwhile, others can upgrade their options in the following allotments. However, the number of allotments and the number of chances a student would get for upgradation would depend upon the availability of seats.

There are various tie-breaking criteria if more than one student has the same CUET score. The marks scored in Class-12 would play a vital role here. The marks of best three subjects would be considered in the tie-breaker. In case there is still a tie, then marks of four subjects would be taken. If the tie couldn’t be broken at this stage, then the marks of five subjects would be considered. If these marks too are same, then the seat would be given to the candidate who is older.
