The decision to postpone the DU UG allotment process was made after the Supreme Court said it would hear a plea from St Stephen’s College tomorrow.
The Delhi University has announced that the release of the DU UG first merit list for admission to the university has been postponed to Wednesday, October 19, 2022.
This decision was taken after the Supreme Court had announced to hear a plea of St Stephen’s College against a Delhi High Court order which had asked it to follow the admission policy of the Delhi University.
The high court has asked the college to follow the DU admission policy, according to which 100 percent weightage should be given to the Common University Entrance Test (CUET)-2022 score while granting admissions to non-minority students in its UG courses.

However, St Stephen’s College wants to give only 85 percent weightage to CUET and 15 per cent to interviews for admitting students across categories.
The window for candidates to accept the alloted seat was scheduled to be active on October 19, however, a delay is expected in the DU UG first allotment process. Delhi University is also likely to officially announce the deferment on the official website, du.ac.in.
DU students should note that according to the academic calendar for 2022-23, classes for all first-year undergraduate courses will begin on November 2, 2022. The DU practical examinations for students will begin from February 17 to 26, 2023. Theory exams will take place from February 27 to March 15.
