Delhi University released the sixth cutoff list for admissions to vacancies in undergraduate courses on Friday with a more realistic minimum marks of 85%-90% for the general category.
The cutoffs were released as there was confusion over the merit list system.
There are 6,500 vacancies out of a total 54,000 seats. DU had said it would bring out only five lists this year. In the first list, BCom cutoffs touched 99.25%.
The vacancies after that were to be filled through merit lists. Till last year, DU used to release 11 lists.
“There was a lot of confusion with the merit list admission so the university decided and asked the colleges to issue cutoff lists,” said a senior university official.
Admissions under the merit list led to withdrawals. For a few seats, colleges received several thousand applications. Admissions under the system ended on August 16.
Under the sixth list, BCom and BCom (Hons) cutoffs are still at 90%. For instance, BCom at Maitreyi College is 90%, and BCom (Hons) is at 92%.
At Bhim Rao Ambedkar College, there are 35 and 26 vacancies for BCom and BCom (Hons). The cutoffs are at 86.50 and 88.50, respectively.
English (Hons) also has many vacancies. Dyal Singh College has 11 seats in the course and the cutoff is 89.50%. At Kalindi College, which has 19 seats available for admission, the cutoff is 87%.
However, for the Science courses, the cutoff is still 90% and above.
At Acharya Narendra Dev College, which has two vacancies for Chemistry (Hons) and one for Bio-Medical (Hons) the cutoff is 92.66% and 94%, respectively.
Admissions will be done on Saturday and Monday. The seventh cutoff list will be out on Wednesday, followed by another one on August 29.
The vacancies are 1,100 in the general category, 2,900 in OBC, 1,100 in SC and 1,500 in ST categories.
