University of Delhi will release 3rd cutoff list for DU admission 2020 for merit based undergraduate programs today. On the basis of the individual cutoffs of the colleges, the university would then release the third cutoff list today.
Reportedly, many top colleges will shut their intake in the 3rd cutoff only as most of the seats have been filled. Reshuffle of college is also expected as few colleges might lower their cutoff.
In many colleges which are expected to close admissions in 3rd cutoff list there is Kamala Nehru College, it might close admissions in most of the courses offered whereas Hindu college still might release the cutoff for certain courses including BA (H) Sanskrit. SRCC is yet to take more admissions, this is a relief for students.
After SRCC made a significant drop in the 2nd cutoff list, SRCC is yet expected to reduce the cutoff further for the two courses offered. There is still availability of around 300 seats in both courses combined. Although admissions might be closed for a few categories.
Following is the status and availability of seats in few colleges:
|College||Total Admissions Approved||Total Seats||Courses Closed in 2nd Cut off|
|Hindu College||1100||950||Philosophy, Statistics, Mathematics|
|Kamala Nehru||1095||All courses almost full|
|Ramanujan||1000||1100||B.Com (H), BCom programme, Psychology|
|SGTB Khalsa||1300||1300||Computer Science, Maths|
|Sri Venkateshwara||1300||1200||Bcom Programme, Political Science|
|Miranda House||787||1100||Political Science|
*These numbers shared are tentative.
Miranda House has approved 787 admissions for 1100 seats.
The response for second cut off has more than offset the same, even after many colleges saw a large number of withdrawals. Venkat Kumar, Sri Venkateshwara College principal, shared that the college has exceeded the number of admissions already. Same is the report for Ramjas College.
Under the Secind cut-off list, A total of around 22147 students have paid the fees till yesterday, as per the officials. As Delhi University has only 70,000 seats under merit based courses and colleges cannot deny admission to a candidate who qualifies the cut off, this might be the reason why they started with a comparatively higher cutoffs.
