The second cut-off list is likely to bring cheer to Commerce students seeking admission to Delhi University’s top colleges. The cut-off percentage for sought-after courses like B Com (H) and B Com Programme has dipped in most colleges.
The Sri Ram College of Commerce (SRCC) has reduced it by 0.5 per cent to 94 per cent. The college had already filled 335 of the 384 seats available for B.Com (H), in the first list itself. Lady Shri Ram (LSR), which had declared the highest cut-off for B.Com (H) at 95.5 per cent, has brought it down to 94 per cent. The Sri Venkateswara cut-off has come down to 93.25 per cent now.
Admission to BA (H) Economics closed in the first list itself at SRCC, Indraprastha and Ramjas. At Hansraj, the Economics cut-off dropped by .5 per cent to 92 per cent. Kamala Nehru, which has just a few seats in Economics, has maintained the first list mark of 90.5 per cent.
Admissions to History, Philosophy, Political Science, BA (H) Math and Hindi are closed at most women’s colleges. Daulat Ram, Kamala Nehru and Miranda House have no seats vacant in History. However, LSR has declared a second cut-off list for all its courses.
Cut-off marks for Sciences, on the other hand, have witnessed a fall. At Daulat Ram, B.Sc (Life Sciences) went down from 75 to 71 per cent and Botany dipped from 75 per cent to 67 per cent. At the time of going to press, Delhi University had not yet officially released the second-cut off list.
