Approximately 9,700 applications were made for the remaining DU undergraduate seats. DU 2nd cutoff applications started from 19th October 2020. However, the cutoff drop is very marginal, i.e. 0.75 to 1 percent. DU senior official says, exactly 9,725 students applied for the various DU college + course combo. Therefore, 2,580 applications are approved till now and 2,602 students secured seats by paying the fees.
All the popular courses are majorly closed for applications. Also, the available courses have very few seats available with them. Hence, such a marginal drop in cutoff is witnessed. Therefore, the underlying factor is that around 1.5 lakh students pass their board examination each year and aspire for DU. But, only 75,000 of them get admission due to the lack of seating facility.
Applications open at LSR:
Lady Shri Ram College for Women(LSR) kept an unusually high cutoff of 100% for 1st list applications. 100% eligibility was for three courses – BA (Honours) Psychology, BA (Honours) Political Science, and BA (Honours) Economics.

Psychology Honors with 99.75 percent, Political Science also with 99.75, and 99 for Economics Honors. B.A. Honors Journalism is also available for applications in the 2nd cutoff with 99.25 percent criteria.
Admissions open for SRCC:
Shri Ram College for Commerce (SRCC) has admissions opened for B.A. Economic and B.Com Honors. The college left its cutoff the same as the 1st list. Hence, it did not budge for Economics Honors due to seat unavailability. However, a drop of 1 percent is seen in B.Com Honors. Hence, the cutoff fell from 99.5 to 98.5 percent.
Hindu College has also kept the cut-off for BA (Honours) Philosophy unchanged. Hence, the 97 percent admission criteria stand the same.
