Delhi University on Saturday released the third cutoff list for admission to various undergraduate courses in around 65 colleges with seats in several popular courses such as English, Economics, Computer Science, History, and Political Science still up for grabs in some sought-after institutions with a marginal dip in the range of 0.25 to 2 percentage points.
Admissions under the third list will be conducted between Monday and Thursday. While colleges can approve admissions by October 22, students can pay their fee by October 23 (5pm). Students can also cancel their admissions in previous colleges and take admission in another college after paying a cancellation fee of ₹1,000, university officials said.
Though DU has around 70,000 sanctioned seats, colleges have admitted more than their capacity in some courses as DU does not follow the first come first serve policy for admissions. Till Friday, 51,974 candidates had paid their admission fee.
This year, 11 undergraduate programmes had released a 100% cut-off in the first list. Of these, seven are still available under the third cut-off list recording a drop in the range of 0.50 to 3 percentage points.
Courses demanding perfect scores under first cut-off, Political Science (Hindu College), Computer Science (Hansraj College), and Psychology (Jesus and Mary College) had closed admissions in the second list. Ramjas College closed admissions in Political Science on Saturday.
Shri Ram College of Commerce had reduced its 100% cut-off in two courses – BCom (Honours) and Economics – to 99.12% and 99.75% respectively for the second list. With respect to third cutoff these dropped further for the unreserved category locking at 99% and 99.5%.
DU’s Deen Dayal Upadhyay College and Shaheed Sukhdev College of Business Studies – who had initially set a 100% cutoff in Computer Science – have reduced it to 97% and 97.25% under the third list in the unreserved category. Similarly, Sri Guru Tegh Bahadur Khalsa College which had set a cut-off of 100% for its BCom course in the first list has now reduced it to 97.25% on Saturday.
