New Delhi: Those who wish to get admission at Delhi University(DU) may get another opportunity as the colleges will declare the sixth cut-off list on Wednesday.
After having almost 99% of its merit-based undergraduate seats filled in the five “realistic” cut-offs, the university has decided to come up with the sixth one.
The move will be a help for the colleges that still have a few seats vacant, particularly in the general category. They are also likely to reduce the cut-off marginally to fill up the seats.
Earlier, DU had decided to come up with only five “realistic” cut-offs for admission to its various merit-based undergraduate courses, however, after the end of admissions under the fifth cut-off list, the varsity has decided to come up with sixth cut-off after conducting a special drive for reserved categories on 16 and 17.
The special drive would give a chance to the applicants belonging to reserved categories like Schedule Caste (SC), Schedule Tribe (ST), Other Backward Caste (OBC), Persons with Disability (PWD), Kashmiri Migrant (KM), Ward Quota, Defense Quota, Sikh Minority quota etc. who “inadvertently” missed to apply in respective categories , to do so by requesting change if any in their categories.
The university in its statement informed that all applicants would now be eligible
after rectification in their respective categories and would be considered for admission under the sixth cut-off.
The varsity released its fifth cut-off list for admission to undergraduate courses on 11 July. The university has, for now, announced a total of five cut-off lists. While most of the seats are already filled for the general category but there are still few hopes for the reserved category.
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. The first cut-off list was announced on 19 June.
The total number of male applicants are 1,44,248, women 1,34,297 and other applicants 29. According to an official from the university, 2,78,544 aspirants have made payments.
Last year, around 2.20 lakh candidates had made payments.
