In this era of intense competition, when scoring good marks is hardly a guarantee for getting a seat, Ramjas College has good news for freshers. It has increased the number of seats for undergraduates from 745 to 884 seats.

Delhi University has 43,000 seats for undergraduates for which over a lakh students apply each year. Ramjas College Principal Dr Rajendra Prasad told HT, “This step has nothing to do with the OBC quota. The college council decided to rationalise the student strength following the restructuring of courses.”

“The student strength in Science courses was rationalised to be in multiples of 15 for BSc (Hons), 20 for BSc (General), BA (Hons) and BCom (Hons) in multiples of 8 and BA Programme and BCom (Pass) in multiples of 12 as per DU rules,” he said.

Ramjas has also taken another initiative by creating a new section of BA Programme where one section will be taught in Hindi and the other in English.

There will be 32 additional seats in BA Programme. The breakup: Eight more seats in BCom (Pass); 10 more in Applied Life Science and Applied Physical Science; 5 more in English (Hons), Eco (Hons), Pol Science (Hons),  History (Hons);  2 more in Maths; 10 more in Physics, Chemistry and Biology.
