The second cutoff list for admissions to colleges under the Delhi University will be announced on July 1. Many colleges are likely to drop their cutoff by 0.25% to 3% points across the courses.

The admission under the second cutoff list will start on July 1 and will continue till July 4.

At Shri Ram College of Commerce (SRCC), admission to Economic (Hons) in general and OBC categories will be closed, but BCom (Hons) will have a second list. “The drop will not be much. There is a possibility of that the points might dip by 0.25% in the Commerce cutoff,” said SRCC officiating principal RP Rustagi.

The first cutoff for BCom (Hons) was 97.75% at SRCC and could come down to 97.50%, Rustagi said.

Hans Raj principal Rama, who goes by one name, said that the college will keep admissions open in all courses. “We have had about 300 admissions against a total of over 1,000 seats. We will decide the dip in cutoff for different subjects on Friday after the admission committee meets,” she said.

The first list was announced on June 23 and admissions began on June 24. This is the first time in many years that the university colleges announced cutoffs lower than that of the previous year in almost all courses.

The Kirori Mal College has closed admission for English, Urdu and Sanskrit, but rest of all courses including BCom (Hons) and Economics (Hons) will be open for admission. “We have done 450 admissions out of the total 1,179 seats. The dip could range between 0.25%-1% points. The highest cutoff at the college was for Economics (Hons) at 97.5%.

The Ramanujan College will bring second cutoff list for all courses with most courses seeing a dip of 1%-1.5% points. “We haven’t had many admissions, so all the courses are open for admission. There will be dip in cutoffs for all the courses,” said principal SP Aggarwal.

The dip in the cutoff could be up to 3% points at the College of Vocational Studies (CVS), which is likely to bring a second list for all subjects. “The second list might go down by 1%-3% points. The college had the highest cutoff at 96% for Economics (Hons) and English (Hons),” said Inderjeet Dagar, prinicipal, CVS.

The second cutoff will be announced on July 1. The Delhi University will bring five cutoff lists this year and the classes will begin on July 20.
