M Jagadesh Kumar, Chairperson of the University Grants Commission (UGC), has said that universities who will be admitting undergraduate students to their programmes based on their performance in the Central University Entrance Test (CUET) are expected to start the new academic year for first-year students in either the last week of October or the first week of November.

“Once the CUET-UG scores are announced, universities may typically take about 6 weeks to finalise the results as they may issue first list, second list and so on until most of the seats are filled. Either in October last week or November first week, most universities may attempt to start their new academic session,” Kumar said.

DU’s common seats allocation system went live on Monday, allowing candidates to register for admission via their Common University Entrance Test (CUET) results. The university has not yet released a date sheet or timeline for the three-phase admission process, but is aiming to close registrations by October 3 and conduct the first round of seat allocations by October 10-12.

At least four rounds of allocation are expected by Singh. The university will begin the semester for First Year students on November 1, even if rounds of allocation are still taking place at that time.

The National Testing Agency (NTA) has announced the results of the Common University Entrance Test (CUET) on 16 september. As advised by Kumar, students should now start checking admission portals or official websites of the universities they wish to seek admission to for more information. The NTA or the UGC will not be conducting any common counseling for all participating universities. Each university will prepare their own merit list based on CUET results and admit students accordingly.
