Four with perfect score enrol themselves in SRCC

At least four students with a perfect score in ‘best of four’ subjects enrolled themselves in BCom (Hons) at Shri Ram College of Commerce (SRCC), as admissions under the first cut-off list came to an end on Saturday.

The college has received 276 applicants against the sanctioned strength of 252 seats in the General category, SRCC Principal Ashok Sehgal told Deccan Herald.
SRCC had posted 97.375 per cent for BCom (Hons) in its first list issued on Wednesday night.

However, more than half the seats are vacant in BA (Hons) Economics for which the college had set the cut-off at 98.25 per cent.

“The cut-off for Economic (Hons) is likely to seea drop of either .25 or .5 per cent, and how much it would be, will depend on the number of applications we received. We have to be little cautious while issuing cut-offs because with just .25 per cent drop in cut-off for BCom (Hons), we would have admitted 123 candidates more,” Sehgal said.

Elsewhere, popular courses in Commerce, Humanities and Science have plenty of vacant seats.

“The college received 370 admissions against 752 seats. Seats are still vacant in BCom (Hons) and Economics (Hons),” Hindu College Principal Anju Srivastava said.

The cut-offs at the coveted North Campus college is only fraction of one per cent less than what SRCC posted in its first list.

Indraprastha (IP) College for Women which put 100 per cent-mark ceiling at maximum for admission to its BSc (Computer Science) course has received only three candidates for the course.

IP College Principal Babli Moitra Saraf told Deccan Herald that only three students got admission in BSc (Computer Science) at 97 per cent marks from Physics, Chemistry and Maths.

Saraf said seats in almost all the courses except Philosophy are available which most probably filled by second cut-off.

“Students should not get disappointed as second cut-off list will provide more opportunities to them. All the colleges considering all the possibilities put first cut-off at higher end and it will drop on the second and third list,” she added.

Among the popular off-campus colleges, Atma Ram Sanatan Dharma College (ARSD) has managed to fill merely 250 against the sanctioned out of 1,150 seats.

However, it has received over admission in BA (Hons) Economics and BA (Hons) English.
The cut-off bar at ARSD is lower than most North Campus colleges.
