Most of the general category seats have been filled,the focus in now on reserved category seats.The expected drop in cutoffs is expected to be high for reserved category students while for general category students the % drop won’t be more than 1.
According to Rama, the principal of Hansraj College, most courses in the general category have closed down, and so there will be no change in the cutoff for the fifth list, in case any course does remain open.However, there will only be change in the reserved category, she told Times of India.
There would be a 0.5-1% drop in cutoffs at IP College For Women. “But there will be a substantial drop for the reserved category,” said principal Babli Moitra Saraf.
“Usually students shift from BCom courses after the BMS results come, and we need to mark our cutoffs keeping those withdrawals in mind. We want to limit the dip to 0.75% points in BCom,” said Vipin Aggarwal, the principal of Aurobindo College. “But we have to still fill a lot of seats in the OBC category here, because in BCom (Hons) we have around 20-22 seats of which only 5 have been filled. So we plan bring down the cutoff there by around 1.5% points,” he added.
