During the second cut off, by 6 pm on Tuesday, 6, 130 admissions were approved by the colleges and 3,600 had paid the fees but the number of applications withdrawn by the students can lead to reopening of several in-demand courses. The second cutoff has seen 3,000 withdrawals over two days as DU allows students to cancel admission in one college and move to another in the next list. Colleges such as Daulat Ram is expected to reopen admissions for History, whereas Gargi with the third most withdrawals, is likely to reopen Political Science in the third list. Despite the highest number of withdrawals this season, colleges such as Ramjas and Bhagat Singh refused to reopen such courses.
Thus, the students must not lose hope and shape up for the third cutoff which is likely to release on 30th June. However, Cut-offs under the third list are unlikely to drop by more than 0.5 % for general students.
For the third list Ramjas had approved admissions to around 1,100 seats, however, Shri Ram College of Commerce is not expected to issue a third cutoff for BCom(Hons) or Economics (Hons) as their seats have been already overfilled. Ramjas had closed admissions to four courses- BSc Physical Science with Chemistry, Hindi (Hons), BA (prog.) and BCom. Daulat Ram named Economics, Sanskrit, BCom, BCom (Hons), Botany and Mathematics, while Gargi said Hindi, Sanskrit, Botany, Microbiology and Life Sciences are likely to close. Similarly, Hindu College, which had already closed many courses is likely to close Botany(Hons) in the third list.
Kirori Mal College with fewer than 80 withdrawals and 450 admissions is not expected to release a third list for courses such as Political Science, Mathematics, Statistics and Geography. Even off-campus colleges like Shaheed Bhagat Singh had closed some courses. At Kamla Nehru College, however, several subjects will remain open except History, Psychology and BA Programme.
