The first day to apply under the third cut-off list witnesses a flurry of admissions in Delhi University’s off-campus colleges. Most off-campus colleges still have seats remaining for the popular courses.
Only 25% seats were left vacant after the first day of admission under third list as approx. 46,213 students had taken admission for Delhi University’s 62,000 undergraduate seats.
While BCom (Hons) was still available in 40 colleges, students wishing to pursue BA(Hons) in English could apply in 31 colleges. BA(Hons) in Economics and BSc(Hons) in Mathematics was available in 21 and 23 colleges respectively.
Rajdhani College witnessed around 200 students taking admission, mostly in BA and BSc programme and BSc (Hons) in Electronics on Tuesday. The college was offering undergraduate courses in BA (Hons) Hindi, BA (Hons) Political Science, BA(Hons) in Sanskrit, BCom(Hons), BSc(Hons) Physics, among others under the third cut-off list.
According to AP Singh, the nodal officer of the college, they have 1,070 seats, out of which 830 have been filled. While the college saw around 230 admissions under the first cut-off, the admission picked up pace during the second list, which witnessed maximum number of admissions. Most probably, the college will have vacant seats only for the reserved categories.
Over 150 students took admission on Tuesday in various courses — including BA(Hons) Economics, Bcom(Hons) and BSc(Hons) Mathematics and BSc(Hons) Zoology in Shivaji Collge. The college, which offers around 1,100 undergraduate seats, had seen 800 admissions so far.
It has been difficult to determine the exact number of admissions, since students have the option to cancel their application without informing the college, which wasn’t the case earlier. This made the process of deciding the successive cut-offs tiresome, since the colleges don’t know which student will withdraw their admission.
According to the principal of DU College Of Arts and Commerce, there have been some withdrawals and thus the college may open admissions for its BA(Hons) Political Science course. The college has seen a total of 335 admissions so far and the number is likely to increase in the coming days.
