Hindu College has almost filled its seats. Out of the total 800 seats, 790 have been filled. The college has closed admission for courses such as BA (Programme), Botany (hons), Zoology (hons), and Political Science (hons).

“Today there were 75 admissions. We have completed admission on most seats but seats are vacant in some categories. There will be admission after cancellations,” said an official from the college.

Shri Ram College of Commerce (SRCC) is likely to fill all its seats under the third cutoff. They filled 92 seats on the first day of admission under the third list.

The college has kept the cutoff for Economics (hons) and B.Com (hons) at 97.25% marks. “There may not be a fourth cutoff for Commerce as all seats are likely to get filled,” said principal RP Rustagi.

Both the courses have remained open for admission at 95% and above marks in popular colleges. Of the 53 colleges that offer B.Com (hons), 16 have closed admission while out of the 34 colleges offering Economic (hons), seven colleges have filled seats.
