New Delhi: The Delhi University on Tuesday issued notification to all its colleges about the changes in admission process for the academic session 2011-12.

Besides notifying the discontinuation of the centralized admission forms, DU admonstration also directed the colleges to discontinue both the online as well as manual pre-admission forms to make the admission process simpler and more student friendly.

A CD of class 12 results of all state boards will be sent to all the colleges from Dean, Students Welfare’s office following which the colleges would sent their respective cut-offs to the varsity. The cut-off list will then be published in University information bulletin.”

The cut-off list would also remain available on the varsity website and would facilitate the students in seeking admission directly into the college and course of their choice.
