According to official data, more than 48,000 students have secured DU Admission 2021 under the two cut-off lists, while the university has received over 1.18 lakh applications so far. Thursday was the last day to clear pending applications in colleges and the third cut-off will be released on Saturday. The university has received a total of 1,18,878 applications under the two cut-offs, while 48,582 students have paid fees, filling half of the 70,000 graduate seats.
10,591 applications have been approved by the principal of the college. Dr Jaswinder Singh, Principal, Shri Guru Tegh Bahadur Khalsa College, said that out of 820, about 440 seats have been filled. He said, “We have 10 students who have applied for the B.Com programme. There is a possibility of a one percent drop in the cut-off in the third list.”
In the first list, the cut-off for B.Com program was estimated at 100 percent, but the program did not find any takers, so the cut-off in the second list was reduced. In Hindu College, 1,858 students have secured their admission so far.
Manish Kansal, admission coordinator at the college said, “The third cut-off list is likely to see a drop of up to one percent for the courses. We have already filled the unreserved seats for B.Com (Hons), while OBC is almost full. There will be vacant seats in the reserved categories and there is a possibility of a decrease of up to one percent in the third list. There will be a meeting on Saturday to decide the cut-off.”
According to Dr Babli Moitra Saraf, Principal, Indraprastha College for Women, they are likely to fill most of the unreserved seats in several courses, while admissions in BA (Hons) Sanskrit are likely to remain open in the third list. In Aryabhatta College, admissions in English (Hons), History (Hons), Computer Science (Hons), Mathematics (Hons), Economics (Hons), BA programs are likely to close in the second list.
