DU releases second cut-off list; marginal decline in marks requirement

Delhi Universities

Most universities have closed admission to popular courses, while some have lowered the qualification requirements in the range of 0.25 to 2% in the second list announced by the University of Delhi on Saturday.

There is a ray of hope for students, as admission to courses like BA (Hons) in Economics and BA (Hons) History is still open at some of the notable colleges, although the required minimum scores are still on the higher side.

Up to 36,130 students have completed their admissions process under the first cut-off list, thus filling just over half of the university’s 70,000 undergraduate places.

Of the eight colleges that had announced 100 percent cut-offs for courses, Hindu College, Jesus and Mary College, and Hansraj College have closed admissions. There are two vacant seats at Ramjas College for BA (Honours) Political Science, which is why it has not effected any change in the cut-off, which remains at 100 percent.

Deen Dayal Upadhyaya College and Shaheed Sukhdev College of Business Studies announced a 100 percent cut in BA (Hons) in Computer Science, but after no recipients were found, it reduced the percentage to 98.5 percent.
