Delhi University (DU) colleges have finally wrapped up the admission process for OBC candidates. However, despite the issuance of a seventh cut-off list, most colleges have recorded under-admissions in some of the coveted courses, raising hopes for students of the general category to once again look at DU for admission into a course of their choice.
Following the closure of admissions for OBC candidates, colleges will now assess the number of unoccupied seats in various courses. These seats maybe converted into general category seats with fresh cut-offs. “Some of the better courses such as English, Sociology and Statistics have recorded under-admissions by about three seats per course, despite a drop in cut-off by 10% for this category. Irrespective of the drop, we have realised that the cut-off maintained is still high for OBC students. Hence, these seats have been unoccupied. We do not know yet what the university will do with the seats that are unoccupied. If no order comes in, we will convert them to general category seats,” said Anju Srivastava, media coordinator, Hindu College.
Some of the off-campus colleges have also recorded lower admissions in OBC category.
