With many colleges closing admissions, students who are vying to get into Delhi University are ready to study any course in any college.

Avni Gupta, who has now taken admission in Miranda House, told IANS: "The second cut-off is still high. I wanted to study economics and English honours course, but I don't think I will be able to qualify. So, I have now enrolled for a BA (Pass) programme."

Neeraj Parihar who is seeking admission in Motilal Nehru College said he will be happy to get admitted in any course in DU.

"I wanted to study B.Com honours, but if I get admitted into any course in Delhi University, I would be happy," Parihar said.

Delhi University is the one of the most prestigious universities in the country admitting over 54,000 students in its undergraduate programme.

With 78 colleges affiliated to the varsity, admissions are on for 63 affiliated colleges.

Another student, Ishab Gupta said: "I scored 94.75% in my class 12 exams, but I don't think I will be able to get admission into the B.Com honours course. Now, I am thinking of changing my course."

The high cut-offs have made it difficult for students to get admission into their desired courses. The colleges also have an additional eligibility criteria, which has made admissions tougher.

"I scored 80% in class 12 and was eligible for a political science honours programme, but because of the additional eligibility criteria, five percent will be deducted and I am no longer eligible," Lalit Deshwal said.

Rajshri at Venkateshwara College said: "Due to the extra eligibility criteria of the college, I have failed to get admission in the political science honours course."

The students who have otherwise qualified for the cut-off can take admission up to July 7 between 9am to 1pm.
