Delhi University

DU Aspirants' Hopes Still Alive

Team Republic |

Khalsa College, which had set the highest cut-off percentage for most subjects in the first list for admissions to Delhi University’s (DU's) undergraduate programmes, is yet to fill most of its seats even after the release of the second list on Tuesday.

After having zero admissions in the general category in the first list, the college had decided to significantly drop its cut-off percentage, by up to 2% in some cases, for many subjects in the second list.

Sources said, however, that even now, the total number of admissions had not crossed 50, while other top colleges have filled a majority of their seats and several have even closed admissions for various courses.

Even among the 50-odd admissions, most are from the minority quota as the college reserves seats for Sikhs. As per reports, a large number of admissions are expected to take place after the third list is released. 

Meanwhile, Hindu College has gone overboard with its admissions, with more than 870 admissions already done so far for its 752 seats. Yet, it will still have some courses which will remain open in the third list.

SRCC has closed admissions for the general category in both B.Com (Hons) and Economics. LSR College, too, will have admissions open in just four courses for the general category.

Daulat Ram College and Kirori Mal College have also filled up 755 out of 1,100 and 655 out of 1,348 seats, respectively.
