Hindu College next stop for Commerce

With Shri Ram College of Commerce (SRCC) closing admissions for sought-after course BCom (H), the students are now flocking to Hindu College which dropped .25 per cent in its second cut-off list. The admissions as per the second cut-off list have begun on Friday.

“Out of the total 31 seats in general category, 27 admissions have already taken place. A total of 55 admissions against 62 seats are already done. In Economics (H), out of a total 27 general category seats, 21 admissions seats are full. Out of a total 54 seats, 51 seats have been secured till now,” said a college official.

After Hindu announced its first cut-off list, seats in Arts courses such as Sociology and Political Science were quickly filled. The admissions in BCom (H) and Economics (H) were taking place at slow pace till the second cut-off list was announced on Thursday.

An official said on the last day of the first cut-off list, around four admissions took place in BCom (H). Around 842 admissions have taken place in Hindu College for 1,000 total seats.

Ramjas College which also reduced its Commerce cut-off by a percentage point saw a cancellation of 24 admissions from BCom (H), said college’s admissions in-charge. “Out of these cancellations, most students opted for Hindu College,” said the official.  

In Ramjas, 44 admissions have taken place in BCom (H) so far. However, the college is also witnessing a rise in the number of BCom admissions in which out of 48, 27 seats are already full.

“There may not be a third-cut-off list for BCom. However, in the third cut-off list we may have to drop a per cent in BCom (H),” the official said.

Hansraj College also has some seats left in its B Com (H). Kirori Mal College officials also said more admissions are expected in BCom on second day with students cancelling their previous admissions. “We are also expecting no third cut-off list for BCom course,” said a KMC official.

A similar trend is catching up at South Campus college Gargi which is also seeing an increase in the number of admissions in BCom (H). On the other hand, Sri Venkateswara has still kept its BCom (H) percentage high and expects a third cut-off list.

“There have been no admissions in BCom (H) yet as we are keeping a high percentage to avoid rush. Last year we did 200 admission for 90 seats. We are analysing the admission pattern of nearby colleges which are facing a huge rush for Commerce courses,” said the college’s media co-ordinator

“The turnout has also been low in Economics (H) with just five admissions so far. We are keeping the percentage high deliberately,” he said.
