With only 15,000 seats up for grabs, the Delhi University will announce its fourth cutoff list for admissions to its undergraduate courses on Wednesday night.

But the cutoff for popular courses may not see much dip at sought after colleges. Some colleges said that honours courses such as English, Economics and BCom are left with a couple of seats so even though they will release a fourth list but the cutoff will not see any significant drop.

“We have a few seats left for BCom (Hons), BCom, and Economics but there may or may not be any drop in the cutoff. Other courses such as Political Science, History and BA Programme will see a drop in the cutoff,” said a member of the admission committee at Sri Venkateswara College.

At Kirori Mal College, 1,100 seats out of the 1,350 have been filled. “There will be a fourth list for some courses but there won’t be much drop. We are still collecting data on the availability of seats and will take a final call on the dip tomorrow,” said officiating principal Dinesh Khattar.

Miranda House has filled over 90% of their seats but they still have a few seats left for courses like English (Hons) and BA Programme. But the college said it will be careful with the dip in cutoff to avoid the possibility of over admission.

“The cutoff for English (Hons) will either remain the same or be reduced by one mark,” said Pratibha Jolly, the principal.

Kamala Nehru College said it is likely to close admission to most popular courses. But will have a fourth list for Sociology, Sanskrit and Journalism.

Similarly College of Vocational Studies is also likely to close admission for most courses but will have a dip of 1-3 percentage points for reserved category students.

Lady Shri Ram College had closed admissions to History (Hons) under the third list, along with 17 other colleges such as Gargi and Hindu, but seats are now available because of withdrawals.

A DU official said that out of the 56,000 seats available at DU, close to 41,000 seats were filled till the third cutoff, admission under which got over on Monday.
