No respite for students yet

The first day after Delhi University declared the second cutoff list saw a rush of students visiting various colleges to confirm if they actually made the grade or some rider rendered them ineligible.

While as per university rules none of the colleges were supposed to be conducting admissions for the second list before Saturday, several colleges started admissions for reserved category students.

There were, however, a few outstation students who had turned up to secure admissions two days too late. “Some students from northeastern states have turned up late although they made the grade in the first list. We have asked them to return on the last day of second list admissions as we don't want these students to lose out," said Manaswini Yogi, IP College media co-ordinator.


At IP College, ECA trials were held on Friday. Twenty-five students appeared for the trials in categories like dance, drama, fine arts and creative writing. The list of selected students will be out on Monday. Hindu College also kept its inquiry counters opened for students. But the marginally lower percentage was more a source of worry than relief for many.

"The cutoffs have only gone down by a percentage or two in Hindu. I will have to try in Ramjas or Khalsa now. I just wanted to find out if there was any chance of a second list for science courses here," said Shobhit Khanna who has secured 88.6 per cent.

Things were no better for Humanities students either. For Dipti Narang it was choice between Philosophy (H) at Miranda House or History at another lower rung college.

"They have closed admissions for history at Miranda," said Dipti who has scored 78 per c ent. Then there were those who had visited the colleges simply to ascertain if their kids had any chance of making it to a north campus college.

"I am trying to find out if colleges like Hansraj and Miranda will have a third list of if my daughter should go for any college she makes it to in the second list," said Surjeet Khanna.

In south campus also the second admission cut off list fulfilled a few dreams and crushed many hopes. Colleges were abuzz with activity as students flocked colleges to check out the second list.

Ankit Bhardwaj (name changed) was pinning his hope on Ramjas College to bring out a second list but that did not happened. "I wanted to study B.Com (H) in a north campus college and with 91.5 per cent my only chance was at Ramjas whose first cut off was 92 per cent. I have taken admission in ARSD hoping Ramjas would bring down its cut off by at least 0.5 per cent in the second cut off but they have closed admission," he said.

Sukriti Arora, a resident of Saket, felt elated when she opened the newspaper on Friday morning. She thought she had made the grade at Venkateswara The cut off for BA (Honours) Math had come down to 83.5-86 per cent from 84-88 per cent and in the second list and she has scored exactly 83.5 per cent. Her expectations crushed when she came to the college.

Apparently, 83.5 per cent was the cutoff for arts students. "For commerce students like me it's 84 per cent," she said.
