The second cut-off list that was released by University Of Delhi on Saturday noted that several courses were closed in some colleges. Most of the courses which are continued to be open saw a drop of about 0.25-0.5 percentage points in top colleges. However, the same did not happen for B.Com (Honours), the course saw a significant drop in percentage across many colleges.
The steepest drop was recorded in Mata Sundri College for Women where B.Com (Honours) cut-off dipped from 96 per cent in the first cut-off list to 91 per cent in the second cut-off list. Other top colleges of University of Delhi have only marginally reduced cut-offs for other subjects while bigger drop was reduced in B.Com (Honours).
In Hansraj College, the cut-off has dropped from 99.25 per cent to 98 per cent. According to the final admission report uploaded by the Hansraj College on 14 October, 2020, the last date for application, there was only one admission in the programme in the unreserved category.

Even in Hindu College, the cut-off for B.Com (Honours) has dropped from 99.25 per cent to 98.25 per cent. The 14 October, 2020 admission report on the Hindu college’s website reported only five admissions in the unreserved category and 33 admissions across all categories. The college has only 79 seats for the course.
“The admission for B.Com. (Hons) usually stabilises around the second and third lists. The high first cut-offs for the programme were based on the experience of previous years. I’m quite surprised to see that the programme has been less popular among the top scorers this year and we will have to study and try to understand what has caused this,” said Hindu College principal Anju Shrivastava.
While several top colleges including Gargi, Hindu, SGTB Khalsa, Kamala Nehru, IP College for Women have closed admissions for many courses, other colleges like Lady Shri Ram, Miranda House, Ramjas, Kirori Mal, SRCC and Hansraj have still seats left for most courses.
At Hindu College, out of 21 courses, 10 courses have been closed. Similarly, Kamala Nehru College has closed 9 courses and IP College for Women has closed 6 courses.
The cut-off for popular courses like Economics and English Honours saw a marginal dip too. Hansraj college has reduced its English cut-off from 98 per cent to 97.75 per cent and Hindu college had dropped its Economics cut-off from 99.25 per cent to 98.75 per cent.
