The admission process at Delhi University is in full swing. As per the official data, Delhi University has received 1,61,024 applications under the three cut-off lists this year. Out of these, 52,000 students have secured admission to the University. Additionally, over 10,000 applications have been approved by principals.
On October 16, Delhi University released the third cut-off list. It saw a decline of 0.25 per cent to 1.5 per cent. However, the cut-offs of popular courses still remained on the higher side.
At DU’s Hindu College, admission to all programmes including B.Sc Honours Statistics, B.Sc Mathematics, B.Sc Physics, BA English (Hons.) had closed during the 3rd cut-off list. While at the Lady Shri Ram College (LSR) admission for Mathematics closed in the third list for unreserved category.

Special Cut-off By Delhi University
The University of Delhi will release a special cut-off list on Monday, October 25, for admission to undergraduate (UG) programmes. The list will release only if the seats remain vacant after the third cut-off list. The university has around 70,000 seats for merit-based undergraduate admissions.
As admission to many courses were closed during the second and third DU cut-off lists, students can expect colleges to reopen admission of UG seats for some courses in the special cut-off list.
For courses including B.Sc Mathematics, Physics, or Chemistry and Statistics, students aspiring to take admission to DU colleges might expect a marginal decrease in the cut-off marks.
Manish Kansal, admission convener at the Hindu College told PTI: “In the special cut-off, most of the courses are likely to remain closed for the unreserved category, while they might be open for the other categories. We will get to know the exact situation after the fee payment window closes on Saturday.”
