60 per cent seats full in major DU colleges

Prominent colleges under Delhi University may not come out with a second cut-off list in sought-after courses.

While Shri Ram College of Commerce has closed admissions for its BCom (H) course by admitting 533 students against the total 501 seats, 85 students have been admitted in its Economics (H) course so far against the total strength of 123 students.

Kirori Mal College (KMC), which has a total seats of 1,348 students, closed its admissions for BA, where of the total 95 seats, 98 admissions took place. Geography (H) admissions were also closed with 59 admissions against 47 total seats.

In Economics (H), 43 admissions took place of 69 seats expected to be full by Wednesday. In English (H), which accepts the Common Aptitude Test for English scores, 22 admissions were taken of the total 27 seats.

For BCom (H), KMC and Hindu College, which came out with a higher cut-off than SRCC, have been waiting for SRCC’s admissions to get over. “We deliberately kept the BCom (H) percentage higher than SRCC’s as some admissions may be cancelled when SRCC’s second cut-off list comes,” said Bhim Sen Singh, KMC principal.

In Hansraj College, Commerce seats are full. It had a similar cut-off as SRCC in BCom (H) and Economics (H).

A few seats are left in Economics (H).  The college has crossed 60 per cent admissions so far. More admissions are going on in Physical Sciences, Life Sciences, Botany (H) and English (H).

According to Miranda House officials, 60 per cent of the total seats are full. Hindu College has been seeing a high number of admissions in its Humanities courses.

“Seats for general category students are getting full as there are more reserved seats.

The second cut-off list will be more for OBC and other reserved category students,” added Kawatra.
