A handful apply, most waiting for second DU cut-off list

Only a handful of students ventured out to take admission on Thursday, after DU announced sky-high cut-offs.

Sources, suggested that most students were waiting for the second cut-off to come. Though the scenario on the second cutoff would only be clear by Saturday, but most principals said that the cutoff would come down for most of the courses.

For Shri Guru Tegh Bahadur Khalsa College, which had increased the cut-off across all streams and highest for History (honours) by 4 percent, over only 48 students took admission for its 780 seats.

“In my college 110 students took admission and 25 are pending. But I can say that the cut-off is going to come down in the second list mostly for pure science and humanities subjects,” said Savita Roy, principal Daulat Ram College.

Some colleges, however, hinted that they might not bring out a second cut-off at all.

Shri Ram College of Commerce said a second cut-off list for B.Com (hons) was unlikely. The college has 110 seats for general category in the course, of which 76 has already been filled.

Similarly Gargi College has also filled one third of its general seats.

University officials also predicted that the cut-offs would go down substantially in the second list.

“Many colleges have announced similar cut-offs. For instance, Hindu, Hansraj and Kirori Mal College have the same cutoff for economics at 98 percent. So if a student qualifies for Hindu and Hansraj why will he/she go to KMC. Lesser admissions will force colleges to lower their cut-offs cutoff,” said a senior university official.

Lady Shri Ram College (LSR) which has come out with a very high cut-off list also saw very few admissions.

“Most of the admissions were in Psychology, History and Hindi. It looks like we will need a second cut-off list for many courses. However, the final picture will only become clear only after the admissions are over on Saturday,” said Kanika Ahuja, who teaches Psychology in LSR.
