DU's 9th cut-off out, 10th to follow

 Starting today, the Delhi University will release two more cut-off lists for all categories and courses where ever seats are available.

“The ninth cut-off will be declared on Saturday and admission will take place between Saturday and Monday. The tenth cut-off will be declared on July 30 and admission will be held on July 30 and 31,” said prof J M Khurana.

Applicants are advised to visit those colleges where seats are vacants and get themselves admitted if they are eligible according to the released cut-off.
The varsity has advised colleges to fill all the seats.

Earlier, the varsity had asked colleges to close admission after the eight cut-off list. Deputy dean of students’ welfare had said, “Once the admission process for colleges after the eighth list is over, the remaining colleges that don’t close their admissions will send us the list of vacant seats. We will then come out with a decision on the cut-offs for the final list of vacant seats,” he added.

Confusion prevails

There were over-admissions in newly-started B Tech courses. This year, admissions were centralised and the option of choosing colleges during filing of admission forms was scrapped.

A teacher from Shri Ram College of Commerce had said, “We were witnessing 100-150 students even with a one percentage point decrease. Many colleges have over-admitted in the general category. Colleges are dropping the cut-offs by a few points gradually to avoid more admissions.”

The over-admissions had also worried principals who then thought of setting up temporary classrooms.

The off-campus and medium-prominence colleges particularly had to deal with numbers that were three to five fold of the sanctioned strength.
