Second list out, cut-offs still remain 'unreachable' in DU

Despite failing to fill up seats in BSc (Hons) Computer Science, two Delhi University colleges that posted 100 per cent cut-off for non-Science students have not tinkered much with their cut-off bar in the second list issued on Monday.

As per the new list, the cut-off for Computer Science at Indraprastha (IP) College for Women range from 95.5 to 100 per cent for candidates belonging to General category. Similarly, College of Vocational Studies (CVS) has brought it down to 99.75 per cent for BSc (Hons) Computer Science.

In the first list issued last week, IP College and CVS had set the cut-offs at 97-100 and 95-100 respectively. The lower limit here applies to Science students. Change of stream can cost disadvantage of up to 5 per cent, as per DU admission policy.

Colleges have exercised caution in the second cut-off list while opening doors to admission-seekers. Shri Ram College of Commerce (SRCC) lowered the cut-off ceiling by 0.50 per cent for its Honours course in Economics, for which more than half the seats are vacant. The college has now set the cut-off at 97.75 per cent.

However, the college has closed admissions for General category students in BCom (Hons). The college had over admitted after it received 24 more students in the non-reserved category.

The college has received 276 applicants against the sanctioned strength of 252 seats in General category, SRCC principal Ashok Sehgal said. SRCC had earlier posted 97.375 per cent for BCom (Hons).

Hindu College, Lady Shri Ram College (LSR), Hansraj College and Ramjas College are among the top colleges that featured in the second list for BCom (Hons) and Economics (Hons).
The cut-offs in these colleges, which are equally competitive, have not seen a drop of more than 1 per cent.

Admissions to popular Arts courses such as English (Hons), History (Hons) and Political Science (Hons) are still on at most of the campus and off-campus colleges. LSR has lowered the cut-off bar by 0.50 to 0.75 per cent, but it is still remains way above the 95 per cent range.

Indraprastha (IP) College for Women has closed admission in BA (Hons) Philosophy, which is one of its flagship courses. Dayal Singh, Bharti College, Delhi College of Arts and Commerce, and Maitreyi College are among the few colleges that closed admission for some of its humanities courses.

There are minor variation in cut-offs for other popular Arts courses in these colleges.
Science courses such as Mathematics (Hons), Physics (Hons) and Botany (Hons) are still up for grabs at the popular North Campus colleges. Cut-offs in these courses as well saw just a minor dip.
