The last day of admission under the third cut-off list was Tuesday. However, from 8:30 AM onwards, the site became non-functional due to which students could not get their admission slips and could not finish their withdrawal process.
Colleges bore an empty look while many worried students gathered in north campus. As per a university official, the problem occurred due to a “cable theft” near Vishwavidyalaya metro station, adding that the deadline has been extended. This is the third such glitch since admissions began on 19 June.
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.

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.
