Aspirants who couldn’t make it in the first cutoff list of Delhi University have something to cheer about.
The admission process for 54,000 seats in 63 Delhi University colleges is currently underway. The admissions under the first cutoff list were completed on Saturday.
Most colleges of Delhi University, including the most sought after ones, are likely to come out with a second cutoff list on July 4. The cutoffs, however, are likely to see only a marginal dip.
The principal of Shri Ram College of Commerce (SRCC) on Saturday confirmed that a second list was going to be released as nearly 50% seats were vacant.
The college filled only 325 and 34 seats, respectively, so far for its two most sought after courses B.Com (Honours) and Economics (Honours).
The cutoff for B.Com(Hons) was 98% in the first list and that for Economics (Honours)was 98.25%.
“There will for sure be a second cutoff list as we have many seats left for both courses. There are 501 and 123 seats for B.Com (Hons) and Economics (Hons) respectively,” said RP Rustagi, officiating principal of Shri Ram College of Commerce.
At Lady Shri Ram College for Women (LSR), only 201 of the total 730 total seats had been filled after Day Three of the admission process. The cutoffs in most courses, except Hindi and Sanskrit, are between 95%-98%. The college may not come out with a second cutoff list for Sociology.
“The admission committee meeting is on Monday but we are likely to come with second cutoff list for most of the subjects,” said Lady Shri Ram College for Women principal Suman Sharma.
At Indraprastha College for Women almost 320 seats were filled by the end of Saturday, the last day to get admission under the first cutoff list.
Out of the total 1,089 seats at Sri Venkateswara College as many as 433 seats were filled by Saturday. At Miranda House as many as 308 seats were filled out of the total 1,001 seats.
Some of the colleges, however, are likely to close admissions for a few courses where seats have been filled under the first cutoff.
At Kirori Mal College, around 600, of the total 1,308 seats, were filled by Saturday. “We may not come out with a second cutoff list for History, Sanskrit and BA (Programme-Physical Sciences). But, other than that all subjects will have a second list,” said Principal Dinesh Khattar.
At Hindu College there may not be a second cutoff list for Political Science, BA (Programme), Sociology, Zoology, and Botany. The college has filled 380 seats out of the total 752 seats.
Off campus colleges have also been able to fill very few seats and they are likely to come with second cutoff list for almost all subjects. For instance, at Deen Dayal Upadhyaya College out of the total 708 seats, only about 300 had been filled.
“There will be second cutoff list in all subjects. The dip will not be more than up to 1 % percentage points,” said SK Garg, principal of Deen Dayal Upadhyaya College.
