The aspirants of Delhi University college may observe a slight decline in many courses in the 3rd cut-off percentage. The students are constantly changing colleges through withdrawal or new applications.
The 2nd cut-off list invited applications from the students from October 19th, 2020, and they were closed on Wednesday dated 23rd October. However, payment of fees for admission under the 2nd cut-off will continue till Friday night i.e. today.
Thus, the final number of admissions will be disclosed at some time. Some colleges will close the admissions in all its courses, Principals said.
Delhi University affiliated college Kamala Nehru closed the admission to the greatest number of courses for the unreserved category. After the first cut-off list, 9 courses showed no-vacancy. The Principal Kalpana Bhakuni said that almost all the courses will close admissions when the admissions of the 2nd cut-off list will be completed. She added that the college awaits the completion of fee payment from some students.
In this round, all the courses will be filled apart from Sanskrit. She compares it to previous years when there were several rounds for admission of unreserved category students but this year the pace was fast. She added that this may of course change in subsequent cut-offs when some students will move to other colleges.
Khalsa College Principal Jaswinder Singh said that the college witnessed minimal withdrawals in the second cut-off list. The admissions were closed after the first cut-off list in as high as 13 courses.
The cut-off percentage for B. Com (Hons) in the first cut-off list was 96.75. The college received 120 applications on 60 seats available in the course. He added that in the second cut-off 20 students withdrew their admission. But the course remains over-occupied. English Hons also closed its admissions after the first cut-off and observed just 4 withdrawals subsequently. 1-2 students opted out of other courses.
In some prominent colleges, B. Com (Hons) saw a huge dip in the cut-off percentages in the second list. Shri Ram College of Commerce has 626 seats in total in the B. Com Hons course. It saw only 101 eligible applications in the first list. Thus, the percentage got down to 98.5 in the second list. It’s expected to decrease further in the 3rd cut-off list. After the second list, the number of seats increased to 330 in the course.
The economics Hons admissions rose from 83 to 135 in the second list. However, the cut-off remained constant at 99 %. The total number of seats was 155.
Bijayalaxmi Nanda, Principal of Miranda House closed the admission in the unreserved category. Seats in Political Science and Geography were filled in the first cut-off. She said that Sociology is also expected to close the admissions in unreserved seats. The courses will reopen for students in the 3rd cut-off list.
Students who make it to the cut-off will have to be given admission even if it exceeds the number of seats. This the reason that colleges have such a high cut-off in the beginning. In the Economic Hons course, no one took admission in LSR as the cut-off was set at 100%.
As per Wednesday, 62,172 have applied for admission, from which 15,698 paid the fee and 7,546 admissions were approved.
