The sixth cut-off list of Delhi University virtually dashed all hopes of students to make it to a college and course of their choice in the general category.


Almost all colleges have closed admissions under the general category.

“We have no seats in the general category. I hope this status will be maintained,” said Bhim Sen Singh, principal, Kirori Mal College.

At Hansraj College too, there were no seats for students from the general category. The only students who may still get admission are those from the Other Backward Classes (OBC) category.

Many colleges, including those from the north campus, have seats only for OBC students. “We have a few seats remaining for OBC students in most courses. Hopefully, they will be filled now,” Singh added.

The university authorities, this year, had clarified that all OBC students who met the criteria would have to be admitted. This order came after a few colleges made merit lists even for those students who met the cut-offs. This was done only for OBC students. No merit list was made for general category students.
