The second cutoff list for admission to Delhi University colleges released on Monday saw a dip of up to 2 percentage points in science courses but cutoffs for other popular subjects like economics, B.Com, English, history and political science remained upwards of 95% after a drop of 0.25 to 0.75 percentage points.
