DU second cut-off list out, students queue up for admissions
New Delhi: Students can begin taking admission into colleges based on second cut-off list, released on Thursday, from Friday till July 07.
The cut-off percentages for admission to popular courses in Delhi University did not drop remarkably in its second list even as some colleges closed admission for most courses.
While Shri Ram College of Commerce (SRCC) closed its admissions for BA (Honours) Economics, the drop in cut-offs for Commerce honours course was by a mere 0.25 percent.
In Hindu College, admissions for History, Political Science, Hindi, Sanskrit, Maths and Statistics honours courses have been closed.
The drop in cut-offs for Commerce, English and Economics honours courses was marginal.
Most of the courses were closed for admission at Kirori Mal and Gargi colleges, while popular girls college Lady Shri Ram College has declared admissions closed for four courses –BA pass, Hindi, Philosophy and Psychology.
While 11 colleges closed admissions for English Honours course, 16 were closed for Political Science honours course.
Out of the three colleges that declared a cut-off at 100 percent for Computer Science (H) course, only Shyama Prasad Mukherjee College reduced its cut-off by a significant margin of 5.5 percent for Arts students.
The other two colleges – ARSD and Acharya Narendra Dev – reduced the maximum percentage only one and two percent respectively.
Much to the delight of students keen to get admission in Journalism Honours, the course continued to remain open except in Kamala Nehru College.
Delhi University has very clear guidelines that no applicant can be denied admission in a college if he/she meets the cut-offs and seeks admission during the stipulated time.
Due to this some colleges have admitted more students than the seats available.
