New Delhi: Many popular courses are likely to be closed in some of the prominent colleges in Delhi University(DU) as the admissions under the third cut-off list ended on Wednesday.
Most colleges like SRCC, LSR, Hindu have already closed admission; and when the fourth list comes out on Friday, there will be lesser options.
DU extended the admissions under the third cut-off list till Wednesday as the university’s admission portal faced a technical snag. Aspirants took advantage of the decision and turned up to secure a seat.
Like last year, the fourth list is likely to see a dip of not more 0.25% points from the third list, said an official. While the highest cutoff in the last year’s list was 97.75% for Psychology at LSR, the course is already closed this year. Psychology is also unavailable in many other colleges, the official said.
Economics, English and BCom (programme as well as honours) are also likely to be closed at many popular colleges.
The university on Friday issued its third cut-off list with many prominent colleges not releasing any cut-offs for some courses. Over 33,000 admissions have taken place to over 56,000 seats in the varsity.
Shri Ram College of Commerce has not issued cut-offs for its courses in the general category. A dozen colleges have closed admissions for BCom (Hons) after the first two cut-off lists. Some of these colleges are Bharti College, Lady Shri Ram College, Kirorimal College, Maitreyi College, Daulat Ram, etc.
Many popular colleges still issued the third cut-off list for the courses like English and Economics. Lady Shri Ram College offered English Honours and Economics at 97.25 and 97.5%, while the same two courses were offered by Hans Raj College at 95.75 and 97%.
Shri Ram College of Commerce, which teaches only two courses (Economics and B.com Honours), closed admission in both by the second cut off. While it closed admission in most other courses, Hindu College asked for 96.75 and 97.50% for English and Economics.
The university has, for now, announced a total of three cut-off lists. The first cut-off list was announced on 19 June.
The varsity threw open its admission portal for aspirants of various undergraduate courses on 15 May. The registration for these courses ended on 7 June. Registrations were made for the merit-based course and rest for the entrance-based ones.
