New Delhi: Admissions to Delhi University`s four-year undergraduate programme will start Monday, an official said Sunday.

Delhi University, where students come from all over India and even from abroad, has 54,000 seats for the FYUP course.
With students scoring high percentage in CBSE Class 12 examination this year, the university officials are speculating that cut-offs will soar.

"As the number of students getting marks in the plus-90 bracket has increased, so cut-offs are likely to soar," JM Khurrana, DU dean student`s welfare, told IANS Sunday.

A centralised form, with both online and offline options, would cost Rs.100 for general candidates and Rs.50 for SC/ST and OBC candidates.
St Stephen`s and Jesus and Mary College will conduct their own admission. For applying in both the colleges, students have only the option of online form.

The university earlier launched an android-based mobile application called "DU UG admissions 2014-2015" from where students can fill their optical mark registration (OMR) forms and get information about the university.

The university has also conducted "open days" where parents and students were provided information on admission and their queries were answered.

While for the offline process there are 18 centres/colleges in north, south, east, west and central Delhi, where students can procure and submit their forms.

The last day for filling form is June 16 while the first cut-off list will be released June 24.

This year, there will also be "university observers" who will see that admission is carried out without any problem.

With most of the procedure remaining the same like with students only having choice of filling the course option, the university has removed the additional eligibility criteria that colleges used to impose on students.

The students, who have studied a lot of vocational subjects, can include them in their best four but they will have to lose 10 percent marks from the subject with highest marks.

The university has specifically advised the students to fill in the actual marks and leave the deduction and addition part with the colleges.

Besides the Bachelor of Management Studies, the entrance examination for all courses were canceled.

Delhi University has 77 colleges affiliated to it.
