Calculating Eligibility And Admission Possibilities

Admission to the four year undergraduate degree course will be based on Discipline-1 (Major Discipline). For example, if a student wishes to choose Economics as her Discipline-1 course, her marks should fall within the 'cut-off' of that course.

  • Marks are calculated on the basis of 4 subjects (the Best of Four scores). These include:
    1. One language (Core/Elective/ Functional)
    2. Subject in which admission is sought (Discipline I)
    3. Any other 2 academic/ elective subjects as defined by the University of Delhi

  • The following subjects that are offered as Discipline I courses by the University of Delhi are treated as academic / elective subjects for the purpose of admission, provided the marksheet states clearly that there is atleast a 70% component of theory exams in the qualifying examination (Theory examinations do not include internal assessment / continuous evaluation, etc). If there is less than 70% component of theory, a disadvantage of 10% of maximum marks will be levied in each such subject.
