The fourth cutoff list is to be released on Thursday, however, the qualifying percentage requirement is not expected to drop by more than a mark or two for most popular courses at sought after colleges.
DU has around 56,000 seats at its 60-odd constituent colleges. Admission to almost 41,000 seats have been approved after third cutoff. Seats for popular course choices may still be available under the fourth list in many colleges. While colleges like Kamala Nehru College are likely to close admissions to most popular courses.
Miranda House has filled over 90% of their seats by the end of the third cycle of admissions. Though they still have a few seats left for courses like English (Hons) and BA Programme, the percentage point requirement is not expected to drop significantly in the fourth list, with most courses seeing no more than a 0.2% point drop.
“The cutoff for English (Hons) will either remain the same or be reduced by one mark,” said Pratibha Jolly, principal. LSR also has seats for honours programmes in Psychology, English, Journalism, and Philosophy. However, these courses will also not see a drop of more than 0.25% points in the fourth list, according to Suman Sharma, the principal, while adding that they have had to deal with over admissions in the past.
Sri Venkateswara College, which had all of its courses other than Chemistry and Sanskrit (Hons) open under the third list, will probably have a fourth list for most of its courses, other than English (Hons). They may even have a few seats left for Economics (Hons), which was closed at nine colleges including Sri Ram College of Commerce, under the third list.
