On Day 2 in DU, reserved categories fill up faster
More seats were filled under the reserved categories in the more popular courses on the second day of admissions in DU as applicants from the general category waited for the cut-offs to drop.

The Delhi University website failed on Friday as well. But compared to the first day, the disruption was for only two hours. All admissions, this year are online.

There was more rush on the campus than on Thursday with students now having a clearer idea on which courses to pick.

Ramjas College, which has announced the highest cut-off in DU so far – 99.25 per cent for BCom (Honours) – has filled 10 seats in the subject so far. A maximum of 50 seats in that college were filled in BSc Zoology. Altogether, 178 students took admission there.

A college official said the numbers were lower than last year after the first list.
On day one this time, there were no admissions for BCom (H) at Ramjas. For BCom (Programme), with a 98.75 per cent cut-off in the first list released on Wednesday, 20 seats were filled at Ramjas.

By 1 pm when 13 students had taken admission for the course, 6 were under People with Disabilities (PWD) category, three Other Backward Classes (OBC), three Scheduled Tribe (ST) and none in the general category.

Shri Ram College of Commerce, which set its cut-off at 98 per cent for BCom (H), admitted 303 students in that course – 167 in the general category, 58 in OBC, 38 in SC, 20 in ST.

Out of the 29 students admitted so far in the BA Economics (H) course at SRCC, only six were from the general category. The college set 98.25 as the cut-ff for this course in the first list.

At Kirori Mal College, ‘popular’ courses like BA Political Science and Economics (H) filled fewer seats than courses like Sanskrit (H), which has accommodated the most candidates so far.

In Economics (H), only two students took admission, both under the OBC category, at that college. Many students faced issues submitting their fees online, which is mandatory before the second list comes out.

There was also confusion regarding the documents required for admission.  The last day of admissions under the first cut-off list is Saturday.
