With the admission process in the Delhi University having reached its last leg, the trend shows that English (Hons), B.Com (Hons) and Political Science are some of the most sought-after courses.

“The number of students taking admission to these courses is high, also because there are more seats in these courses. Courses such as BA (Political Science) and B.Com may be popular as they give students better opportunities to sit for various competitive exams, such as UPSC and other central services,” said MK Pandit, Chairperson of the university’s Admissions Committee.

As per data given by an official, 33,000 students were admitted to the university before the third cut-off list came out.

“I have opted for English (Hons) in Kirori Mal College mainly because I plan to sit for the civil services exam later and the subject will help me,” said Dhruv Singh, who got through made it in the second cut-off list. Till now, three cut-off lists have been announced. The notification for the first and second came out on June 19 and June 25 respectively. The third one came out on June 30.

Another student, Kriti Sinha, said she has opted for BA (Programme) at Kamla Nehru College as she could choose psychology honours and human resource management as disciplines.

Course vs college

Going by the past record, students when it comes to choosing between courses and colleges, students often pick the latter. It seems a similar trend continues this year too.

“Students compromise on their course so as to get the brand name of the college. They go for Sanskrit in Hindu College rather than opt for political science from a lesser known college,” said Gurpreet Singh Tuteja, Deputy Dean, Students’ Welfare. He added that students are always advised to focus on the subject as that would be a choice for life.
