1. When should I come to Delhi for undergraduate admissions
Ans. If you are applying for a course that provides admission on the basis of Cut Off Marks then it is better to come just 2-3 days ahead of the day first cut off list is published. You can use those 2-3 days to acclimatize yourself with the city and the weather.
2. How should I calculate the Best of Four?
Delhi University publishes details instructions on how it should be done. You can find the link to the last year's instructions under https://www.collegedoor.in/delhi-university Read the document carefully and if needed take a print out of the relevant sections along with you. If some college officials cause problem, you can show them the document
3. Which college is good
Almost all the colleges in Delhi University are of decent quality and the evaluation of which college is better is at most the subjective evaluation. We at CollegeDoor had tried to bring some objectivity to the system by creating a Data Science Based Algorithm that takes into account how seats get filled in a college.

3. Do I need to be non creamy OBC to avail benefit
4. Can I use any external influence to get admission into Delhi University
We will strongly advise against falling for any such trap. In my more than two decades of association with Delhi University, I have never known of anyone who took admission through undue means
5. What is the admission process for St. Stephen's college
It is totally separate from typical DU Admission. You can check out https://www.ststephens.edu/prospectus/ for the current year's prospectus and also keep on checking their site for the other admission details
6. What is the best place to stay for outstation students
Hostels should be the first choice. Check out list of all DU Hostels here. http://du.ac.in/du/index.php?page=hostels There is special hostel for NE students. If you dont get into a hostel, there are plenty of choices of paying guest or mess in around DU. Mukherjee Nagar, Hudson Lines, Indra Vihar, Christian Colony, Kingsway Camp etc are the popular choices in North Campus. Satya Niketan, Vasant Enclave, Mochi Gaon, Moti Bagh etc are popular choices
7. If I am an outstation student, say from North East and I am getting admission in a premier college in North East but getting admission in a tier 2 college in DU should I still come over?
The answer is totally dependent on individual choices. We believe there are plenty of good colleges with excellent faculty outside Delhi too and qualitatively, it does not make much of a difference whether you are studying in Delhi or outside. Only thing that sets Delhi University apart is the access to wider spectrum of opportunities and also a chance to mingle with a pan India crowd. This may be a differentiating factor in your future. But then again, if you study hard and keep your eyes and years open, opportunities can be found in every nook and corner of the world
