The fifth list has opened doors for humanities and commerce aspirants who have been praying for a miracle after the second cut-off list.
So much so that students who had taken admission in colleges and courses out of their choice range, are now thinking of withdrawing their papers and applying afresh for admissions.
“I took admission in the BA Programme course in SGTB Khalsa College under the third list because I didn’t want to wait. But I really wanted to do a course in either history or political science. I will file an application of withdrawal from the college and apply for admission again,” said Mukul Mehta, an aspirant.
Officials at Ramjas College — one of the few colleges to reopen admissions for mainstream courses such as BCom (Hons) and History (Hons) — said that while History (Hons) did see a few admissions, commerce courses still remained more sought after. “We had five withdrawals in history, so we decided to open it up again for general category students after maintaining the cut-off we had in the second list,” said Rajendra Prasad, principal, Hansraj College.
Despite this window of opportunity, however, students continued to make a beeline for the BCom (Hons) course.
“We closed admission under the fourth list after admitting a total of 42 students against 47 vacancies. On Tuesday, we admitted a total of eight students in BCom (Hons) and 10 students in BCom (Programme),” said VCS Rao, media coordinator, Sri Venkateswara College.
