DU's second cut-off list to be out today, slight dip possible
New Delhi: The second cut-off list for admission to Delhi University colleges, which is to be declared on Monday night, may drop by 0.25-1%, giving students who failed to clear the sky-high cut-offs in the first round.
Social science and humanities courses may see a greater dip.
A second list has already been released by Kirori Mal College and Deshbandhu College that indicated the same. Cut-off for history (hons) came down from 95.5% to 94.75% at KMC while for political science (hons), it came down to 97% against 98% in the first list.
In Deshbandhu College, where admissions to B.Com (hons) and economics (hons) have been closed, slashed cut-offs for history (hons) and political science (hons) to 86% and 87%, respectively.
B.Com (hons) admissions in the Sri Ram College of Commerce have been closed at but a second cut-off list for economics (hons), 98.75% in the first list, will be declared.
“There will be a second cut-off list for economics (hons) with a dip of 0.25-0.50%. But there is no second list for commerce as seats are already full. In fact, we have given admission to more number of students than seats available,” said Ashok Sehgal, officiating principal, SRCC.
In Ramjas College, of the 1,300 seats available across courses, around 745 have been filled. “Seats are full in zoology, botany, life sciences, English and political science. For the rest, we will have a second list,” said principal Rajendra Prasad who hinted at a dip of 0.50-1%.
Lady Shri Ram College saw the highest cut-offs for economics (hons) and English (hons) at 98% and 98.25% respectively. The college still has seats left in economics, English and B.Com (hons) among some other courses and is likely to declare a second cut-off.
Ram Lal Anand College has closed admissions to political science (hons) but a second list for the B.Com (hons) is likely to be out. A second list in many subjects, including commerce and journalism (Hindi) will come out and is likely to drop by 0.25-3%.
Acting principal of Hindu College Anju Srivastava, however, said that there would not be much decrease in cut-offs. “They would drop by 0.25-0.5% in different subjects. There are many courses like sociology and botany which are already full,” she said.
Admissions based on the second list would begin Tuesday.
In the first cutoff list declared last week, College of Vocational Studies and Indraprastha College for Women posed a stiff competition with its 100 percent cut-off for the computer science programme for general category students.
