Third Cut off 2017
Many colleges said they would come out with a DU third cutoff list on Friday, with a dip of up to two percentage points in most courses.
Seat are available even in sought-after courses such as BA programme, which had the highest number of applicants, BCom and Economics (hons) programmes, among others. Students may seek admissions under the third list till July 10.
But Shri Ram College of Commerce (SRCC), which closed admissions to Economics (hons) in the general category after the first list, may not come out with a third list for general students in BCom (hons).
At Sri Venkateswara, though admission to Chemistry (hons) is likely to be shut, seats are available for Economics and BCom. “The cutoff across courses could go down by 0.25-1 percentage point. We have seats left in Economics and BCom but the dip would be marginal,” said a member of the admission committee.
Kamla Nehru College could bring down the third cutoff list by 0.25-0.75 percentage points. “We have seats left for honours courses in some subjects such as Economics, English and Political Science,” said an official.
There could be a dip of up to 2 percentage points at the College of Vocational Studies, said principal Inderjeet Dagar.
At Miranda House, principal Pratibha Jolly said BA (hons) courses in Sociology and Philosophy would be most likely be closed for admissions, and science courses are almost filled up.
“There will be a very minor drop, of less than one percent, or we may even call for the same cutoff as the last list for some of the (science) courses. However, in humanities, we still have seats in BA programme, BA (hons) in Political Science and History (hons) among others,” said Jolly. For the humanities courses still open, the cutoff may drop by up to two percentage points.
Ramjas too has said they have a few seats left in BA programme and BCom. “There will be a third list but the cutoff will only drop by 0.25 to 0.5 percentage points,” said PC Tulsian, principal.
In Daulat Ram, seats are open for almost all their courses.
Principals said they would be cautious with the drops as they are not allowed to turn away any student even if the seats are full.
