On day two of the admissions after the second cutoffs on Saturday, some Delhi University (DU) colleges on north campus witnessed long queues that lasted well into the noon while some finished admissions early.

Corridors of Ramjas College were packed with parents and aspirants who had to wait for a long time in order to get their forms verified.

“Since forms of all the courses are being verified in one single room, there is a lot of confusion. We had to wait for two hours in the queue for getting my documents verified and paying the fee. The management in this college is poor. The officials are calling out names of the aspirants one by one and we are not sure whether our turn will come today or on Monday,” said Aarti Garg, an Economics (Hons) aspirant.

Applicants and their parents waited for their turn on benches placed in the corridors while others sat in the lawn outside, braving the heat.

Ramjas College saw all its seats filled for English (Hons) course. Hindi (Hons), B.Com (Hons) and Chemistry (Hons) are also some of the popular courses aspirants are opting for here.

The college has filled close to 1,450 seats even though the sanctioned number of seats is only 1,350.

Other colleges like Kirori Mal, Indraprastha College for women and Ram Lal Anand saw smoother admission processes.

Ram Lal Anand has 600 seats out of which 350 have been filled already. “We have closed the admissions for most of our courses like BCom (Hons), Statistics, Political Science, History and Computer Science. Even for Geology, the admissions are closed since this is only offered by our college and Hansraj. English (Hons) has admitted more number of students than the number of seats available in the course,” said Vijay Sharma, principal of Ram Lal Anand College. The college has seen around 50 withdrawals till now. Many aspirants are now waiting for DU to release its third cutoff list so that they can take admission in the colleges of their choice.

“I have taken admission in BSc Electronics in Hansraj College for now but I would like to opt for either Chemistry (Hons) or Computer Science (Hons) in Hindu college if it releases its third cutoff list,” said Shubham Virmani, an aspirant who scored 95.67% in class 12.
