The undergraduate admission process is almost over at most Delhi University colleges. The fourth cut-off list declares the marks of admission for only a handful of courses and colleges for arts and commerce stream aspirants, while there are more options for those keen on a science course.

Most colleges have kept admissions open for science courses fearing withdrawals in favour of engineering and medical courses. “Engineering admission counselling is on and medical counselling has started. At least 50 students are withdrawing their documents for cancellation of admission every day,” said B.N. Ray, admission convener at Ramjas College. For science courses, cut-off marks have plummeted by 1 to 5 per cent marks.

Admissions are open in courses like Botany, Zoology, BSc Honours in Math, Physical Sciences and Applied Physical Sciences in Hindu, while Hans Raj has kept its admissions open for Botany, Zoology, Physical Sciences and Life Sciences. “Seats are not full in science courses. Most science students are going for Commerce and Economics as they think their job prospects are better there,” said S.R. Arora, Principal Hans Raj College.

He said even courses like Maths were more in demand than science courses. “We have admitted 80 students against 20 seats in Maths,” added Arora. Ramjas has kept admissions open for Chemistry, Zoology, Botany, Math, Applied Physical Sciences and Applied Life Sciences.

Sri Venkateswara in South Campus has also kept admissions open in five science courses — Physics, Chemistry, Botany, Zoology and Life Sciences. “We are trying to fill as many seats as possible before college reopens. We fear some cancellations as Hindu and Hans Raj have lowered their cut-off marks. Naturally, science students would like to go there. Fourth list is a contingent measure,” said Ray.

Admissions are still open in the BA programme course in Kirori Mal and Hans Raj (for those with Sanskrit options). Seats are also available in colleges like Atma Ram Sanatan Dharam (ARSD), Bhagini Nivedita, Aditi Mahavidyalaya, Deshbandhu, Dyal Singh (evening), Maitreyi, Shivaji and Sri Aurobindo.

Seats in Bcom Honours are also available in Kirori Mal, College of Vocational Studies, Deshbandhu, Dyal Singh and PGDAV. Hindu College has kept admissions open for English, Math and Sanskrit.
