DUET 2021 ( Delhi University Entrance test) is a national level exam conducted to provide entrance to DU affiliated colleges. The test is conducted via NTA. 

Though this time entrance to DU is going to be done on merit basis but still few affiliated colleges require admission through entrance test. The first stop list is predicted to be out by October, 2021 and it is likely that this year the cut off will also be very high. 


This year as CBSE cancelled the 12th boards hence the entrance test became necessary to check the capability of the candidates. It is important that the candidates get admitted on the basis of their intellectual level and not on the basis of the percentage granted by CBSE. Since the exams were cancelled it has become difficult to check the potential of the candidates as many students scored above 95% this year on the basis of the other assessment process or internal markings. This year, the application process for the DUET 2021 started on July 26th.
