Students still waiting to get in to Delhi University need not worry as most colleges will come up with the third cutoff list on Sunday night.

The dip may be 0.5-1 percentage point s once again for science and commerce courses. For humanities courses, the drop will vary from college to college, with some even deciding to keep the cutoff for certain courses the same as the second list.

“There are just a few seats that remain for courses such as political science (Hons), English, economics and the BA programme, so the cutoff for these subjects will remain the same. For Hindi and Sanskrit, as large numbers of seats are left, the cutoff will come down,” said Savita Roy, principal Daulat Ram College.

The college has filled 1,013 seats out of a total of 1,077.

Even Atma Ram Sanatan Dharma College (ARSD) is likely to retain the same cutoff for courses such as History, Political Science and Hindi, as in the second list.

Shri Ram College of Commerce will come out with the third cutoff list for economics (hons). However, admissions to BCom (hons) could be closed.

“We have 30 seats still left for economics so we will definitely have a third list. The dip may just be very marginal,” said RP Rustagi, principal of the college.

Similarly, Lady Shri Ram College for Women will come up with their third cutoff list. Sociology (Hons) and Hindi (hons), which were closed in the second list, will remain closed, the other courses will be available.

In Hindu College, except for botany and zoology (hons), seats for other courses will be available.

“The cutoff for history and economics will see a dip in the third list. As we are almost about to fill seats for physics and chemistry (Hons), the dip in cutoff will be marginal,” said Anju Srivastava, Hindu College principal.

Hansraj College will be coming out with the third list. The college has filled 700 seats out of a total o f 1,165 seats.

At off campus colleges, science and commerce courses will see a dip.

“The third cut off list will offer seats in popular courses like B.Com(H), philosophy and psychology. Surprisingly, this time the inclination has been more towards social sciences and only two admissions have been done so far in BCom(hons). There would be a 1.5% dip in the third cut off,” said Rita Malhotra, principal Kamala Nehru College.

The BCom (hons) and science courses will see a dip of 0.25-1 percentage point,” said Gyantosh K Jha, principal, ARSD college.
