The crazefor campus colleges is well and truly on. With June 29 being the last date of admission on the basis of the first cut-off list, several campus colleges have decided not to bring out second cut-off lists in some subjects.
In fact, principals of campus colleges like Hindu, Hansraj and Ramjas as well as the prestigious South campus college, Sri Venkateswara, say that there is an unprecedented rush for admissions this time. They ascribe this rush to a general rise in applicants as well as higher marks secured the applicants in class XII examination.
Sri Venkateswara College Principal Dr A.S. Reddy stated that his college was unlikely to bring out the second cut-off list in B. Com (Hons), Economics (Hons) and English (Hons) courses. According to Hindu College Principal Dr Kavita Sharma, her college would not bring out the second list in Maths (Hons) course.
Daulat Ram College, according to Principal Dr Malati Subramaniam, would not release the second cut-off list in B. Com (Hons) and Economics (Hons) courses.
But, in colleges outside the campus, there doesn't seem to be a rush for admissions.
Dr S. K. Jolly, principal of the Shyama Prasad Mukherjee College, Punjabi Bagh, stated that her college was second to none in terms of university examination results this year.
However, for the prestigious B. Com (Hons) course, Shyama Prasad Mukherjee College had admitted only eight applicants even though the cut-off percentages, according to Dr Jolly, had been decided "realistically".
Dr Jolly attributed this to a "craze for campus colleges among applicants". She informed that her college would be bringing out the second list in all subjects.
Authorities in Shriram College of Commerce (SRCC), considered the most prestigious college offering commerce courses, however, said that the picture regarding further release of the cut-off list would become clear only on Saturday.
