As admissions on second day after the first cutoff list slowed down and seats remained vacant across courses, Delhi University aspirants can expect the minimum marks required to come down in the second list to be announced on July 4.
Few students usually qualify under the first list because of the high cutoffs. The university will release five lists in all.
“The second cutoff list will surely come down. But we will be able to say definitely on Saturday after the admission under the first list is over,” said an official of the admission committee at Venkateswara College. Admissions will go on till July 2 under the first list.
The college has seen 176 admissions out of a total 1,089 available seats. Even those admissions were for BA programme (94%), Political Science and Botany (92%) — courses with lower cutoffs compared to other courses. Around 84% seats are vacant.
Lady Shri Ram College for Women, among the most sought after, has had 170 admissions. The cutoffs in most courses, except Hindi and Sanskrit, are 95%-98%.
Admissions at Daulat Ram College, however, have been pretty high compared to others. Seats are almost full in Zoology (Hons) and Bio-Chemistry, the college said. “Though now we have been able to fill seats, if in other colleges the admissions are less and the second cutoff list is released, there will be lot of migration… there will be withdrawals,” said principal Savita Roy.
Shri Ram College of Commerce (SRCC) principal assured a second list for both Bcom (Hons) and Economics (Hons). The first cutoffs in these courses were 98% and 98.25%, respectively.
Indraprastha College for Women is hopeful that all seats will be filled by the fifth cutoff list. “Admissions have picked up on the second day. The most admissions have taken place at history honours,” said principal Babli Moitra Saraf.
