Du Express presents the tentative seats left in some courses for the third cut -off list.
Kamala Nehru College closed the admissions for Unreserved seats in nine courses after the release of first cut-off list. Principal Kalpana Bhakuni said that the completion of fee payments will be done soon and it is likely that admissions to almost all courses will close for now.
She said, “Apart from Sanskrit, we are likely to fill our seats in all courses in this round of admissions. In other years, there used to be several rounds of admissions for reserved categories but this year, we are already through with admissions for all reserved categories. Of course, this may change after the third and fourth lists come out in other colleges and we might see withdrawals and movement between colleges at that time.”
In Shri Ram College of Commerce, the cut-off for B.COM (H) had dropped from 99.5% to 98.5% in the second list. This is a drastic fall in cut-off in the top course. It has a total number of 626 seats out of which it had only received 101 eligible applications in the first list, this has increased to 330 after the second list, leaving many seats open for a third list. In Economics (H), its cut-off stayed stable at 99%, the number of approved admissions increased from 83 to 135, against a total of 155 seats.
In Khalsa College, admissions were closed in 13 programmes after the first list. Principal Jaswinder Singh said, “We had a 96.75% cut-off for unreserved seats in B.Com (Honours) in the first list and received 120 admissions against our 60 seats. In the second list, we had around 20 withdrawals and we are still over capacity. We had four withdrawals in English which had also closed after the first list and one or two in a few other courses.”
At Miranda House, Political Science and Geography had closed for unreserved seats after the first list. Principal Bijayalaxmi Nanda said that while Sociology is also likely to close for unreserved seats now, most courses will remain open for a third list with a slight decrease in cut-offs.
Till Wednesday evening, 62,172 had applied for admission, the admission of 7,546 was approved and 15,698 had paid the fee. The cut-offs are released at a high rate initially so that the algorithms can be calculated. Colleges don’t want to exceed the capacity of seats in the particular course as after the cut-off is released they are bound to give admission irrespective of the seat vacancy.
All the best to the DU aspirants for the upcoming cut-off lists and don’t be glum it will be a beautiful journey ahead.
