“By 4 am 145 students have already taken the seats allotted to them,” he said.

Candidates have till November 1 to claim the allotted seats.

59,100 candidates have been admitted in the first round of seat allotment of DU. After the completion of the first round, the university displays vacant seats for the second round.

Candidates were given a window of two days to get an upgrade and rearrange their preferences. About 60 percent of them chose to upgrade to their higher ‘program college combination’ choice, a university official said earlier.

More than 25 percent of the 59,100 candidates have frozen their seats, he added. The number of seats across DU colleges is 70,000, but the varsity has allocated additional seats to the unreserved (OBC-NCL and EWS) and reserved (SC, ST, and PWBD) categories in the first list, taking the number to 80,164. More than 72,800 candidates out of 80,164 took the colleges and courses allotted to them.

Since DU is admitting students through CHEET scores instead of Class XII marks, several colleges have said that the admission process has become easier for them this time. According to Manoj Sinha, principal of Aryabhatta College, “It is very easy for the college and the students. Sitting at their homes they can discuss with their peers which college and course to choose. Chances of over-admission are less. DU will allocate seats.

Till last year, DU used to admit on the basis of cut-off and colleges had to admit students who met the cut-off even though it meant admitting 100 students for 20 seats, but principals said the situation has changed now.

Admission through CSAS is conducted in three phases – submission of application form, selection of program and filling of preference, and seat allotment and admission.

The University has advised the candidates to confirm their admission in the seats allotted to them, whenever it is offered
