Most DU colleges likely to announce third cutoff


Delhi University aspirants who are dreaming about getting into a ‘good college’ and have not made it yet, shouldn’t already lose hope. Most colleges are likely to bring a third list with a slight dip in cutoff marks, just like the previous years.

The university will announce its third cutoff list on the 10th of July (Sunday Night) and the admissions will resume from Monday. As announced before, this year, DU will only release five lists.

At Lady Shri Ram College for Women (LSR) out of the 730 total seats, around 280 have been occupied, till now. “There is still one day left for admissions under second list but even after that the college is likely to come out with a third cutoff list for most of the subjects”, said an LSR official.

“Most of the courses are likely to remain open for admission at our college. However, what will be the dip will depend on admissions done on Friday,” said ARSD’s principal Gyantosh K Jha.

Out of 1,179 seats at Atma Ram Sanatan Dharma (ARSD) college, only 196 seats were filled by Wednesday. There have been 12 withdrawals, till now.

The Shri Ram College of Commerce (SRCC) has filled 540 seats out of total 674 seats. Acting principal RP Rustam mentioned that their admissions would be open under the third list.

Ramjas College could fill around 50% of its seats by Wednesday. The college, which in the first list had the highest cutoff for BCom (hons) at 99.25 %, higher than SRCC’s 98%, reduced its cutoff drastically, to 97.75%, in the second list. “Of course there will be a third cutoff list and most likely in all subjects. There have been some withdrawals also,” said principal Rajendra Prasad.

Similarly, at Hansraj College, only 563 seats have been filled out of the total 1,165. At Ram Lal Anand (RLA) College, only 145 admissions have been taken out of the total over 600 seats.

Similar to the previous years’ trends, the second cutoff list saw a dip of 1-3 percentage points in science courses and only 0.25-2 percentage points in humanities and commerce.

But, the minimum mark still remained above 95% in popular colleges. As per sources, the cutoff is expected to drop in the upcoming lists in order to fill all the seats.
