Students check the first cut-off list for admissions at Kirori Mal College in New Delhi.

Delhi University’s (DU’s) opening day of admission saw a rush of applicants vying for a seat in their preferred college.

Shri Ram College of Commerce (SRCC) saw half of its seats for BCom and almost all seats for Economics (hons) fill up on Tuesday. The college in fact had to extend the timings till 6.30 pm to finish formalities due to the huge rush.

Parents and their wards filled up the corridors of Ramjas College by 11 am and wait in queues for a long time to finish verification procedures.

Sunita Kaushik, whose daughter was applying for political science honours said, "I came here even before the admission process had begun and finally got through with the whole process around 4:30 in the afternoon.There was only one verification counter to manage the process."

Ramjas principal, Rajendra Prasad said his institution had admitted more students than sanctioned for English, Political Science and History. "A lot of students said Ramjas College was their first choice," Prasad said.

Hindu College saw a relatively smooth admission process. Aspirants applying for science courses expressed their disappointment over scrapping of B.Tech courses.

Vishakha Jha an aspirant said, "I wanted to apply for B.tech in food technology but now that B.tech has been scrapped will take admission either in Botany honors or Zoology honors."

The college saw a good response in history and political science. A second cut-off, however, can be expected in economics and commerce. Some science courses may also see a second list.

The college saw a good response for honours courses in English and Psychology. The college may, however, have to come out with a second list for BCom aspirants.
