A 25% weighting of the Common University Entrance Test (CUET) score and a 75% weighting of certificates and trials will be applied to admission under the ECA and Sports Supernumerary Quotas.

The performance in physical trials and/or submitted certificates, as appropriate, will count toward the maximum 75 marks that can be earned for the ECA score.

Delhi HC asked St. Stephen’s College to follow DU Admission Policy

St. Stephen's College challenged Delhi University's (DU) letter requesting that it delete its prospectus that awarded CUET and college interviews equal weights for admission to its unreserved seats in UG degrees, with CUET receiving a weight of 85% and 15%, respectively. The university's letter withdrawing the college prospectus for the academic year 2022–2023 was previously refused to be temporarily overturned by the high court.

On Monday, the Delhi High Court ordered St. Stephen's College to abide by the admissions guidelines established by Delhi University (DU) and to give the CUET 2022 score 100% of the weight when deciding which non-minority students to enroll on its undergraduate programmes.

However, according to a bench presided by Chief Justice Satish Chandra Sharma, "DU cannot insist upon a single merit list for admission of candidates belonging to Christian community regardless of denomination etc." The court, which included Justice Subramonium Prasad as well, ruled that non-minority admissions cannot be granted the fundamental right under Article 30(1) of the Constitution that is granted to a minority institution.

"Aided minority institutions are required to adhere to the rules and procedures of the aforementioned university. The court stated that the protection provided by Article 30 (1) "may be extended to the extent that it permits minority institutions to sub-classify the reservation granted to the minority community."
