The reason Delhi University is seeing a drop in number of applications is because it allows students to correct forms and also every year the cut-off is increasing, according to an official.

“The option to make changes in the form was not available earlier so candidates used to fill multiple forms. Also, with the cut-offs rising with each passing year, aspirants explore other colleges,” said Sukanta Dutta, OSD-Admissions, Delhi University.

According to the data available on the university website 2.58 lakh applications have been received this time as against 2.78 lakh last year, a dip of around 20,000 applications. The first cut-off of Delhi University is to be out on June 28.

Interestingly, the number of female applicants are higher than male. There are around 84,000 female applicants this time against 68,457 male applicants in the unreserved category.

In terms of board, the highest number of applicants are from Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) followed by UP board.

Meanwhile, at 1.11 lakh, majority of applicants are from Delhi, followed by Uttar Pradesh and Haryana.

The date for registration was extended till June 22 for admission to the Undergraduate Courses for the academic year 2019-2020.
