The Delhi university’s (DU) third cutoff list, to be announced on Friday, will see many colleges keeping admissions to popular courses open. The dip in cutoffs, however, is likely to be only marginal at famous colleges.

Sri Ram College of Commerce (SRCC) still has seats available for economics (hons). “We still have seats left but the decrease will be only about 0.5 percentage point,” said Ashok Sehgal, officiating principal of SRCC.

Most of the popular courses like economics, English and BA (programme) are likely to remain open at Miranda House college which will decrease the cutoffs by 0.25-0.5 percentage point. “Admissions for courses like philosophy, sociology, economics, English and BA (programme) are likely to remain open. But the dip in cutoffs would be in the range of 0.25-0.5 %,” said Pratibha Jollly, Principal Miranda House College.

At Ramjas College, which filled around 900 seats by Thursday, is likely to keep admissions to most courses open, with a slight dip of 0.25 to 1 percentage point. “Most courses like BCom (Hons), economics and English will be open for admission. There will be a likely to be a dip of 0.25-1 percentage points in the third list. But the cut-offs for reserved seats will go down by significant points. It could go down by 2-3 percentage point,” an official at Ramjas college said. The Hindu college is likely to keep admissions to courses like mathematics, BCom (Hons), economics, political science, physics and chemistry open with a decrease in cutoffs between 0.25-1 percentage point. “We will keep many courses open for admission in the third cut-off list. But the dip will be marginal in all the courses,” said Anju Srivastava, acting Principal of the college.

Philosophy, economics, BA (programme), journalism, mathematics, statistics will be open for admissions in the third cutoff list at Lady Shri Ram College. However, there may not be any significant dip in the cutoffs.
