Students vying to get a seat in Delhi University for popular courses such as Commerce, Economics and English need not worry as the courses still remain open for admission in the third cut off list issued on Wednesday.
As many as 25 colleges were still offering admissions for the much-in-demand Commerce course. Among the popular colleges with seats still available for the course were Hindu, Hans Raj, I P College and Ramjas.
The drop in the cut-off, however, was not very significant. In Hindu, where the second cut off was 96.5-99.5 per cent, the third cut off is 96.25-99.25 per cent. The cut-off for Commerce at Ramjas and Hansraj too came down by 0.25 per cent.
Withdrawals at some colleges, which had closed admission for the course in the second list, has resulted in admissions being reopened in the third list. Kamala Nehru, Lakshmibai and Maitreyi were among such colleges.
Admissions for Economics and English were still open in over 20 colleges, but the drop in cut-off was similarly marginal.
For Journalism, only two of the six colleges — Delhi College of Arts and Commerce and Maharaja Agrasen College — issued a third cut-off.
With the BA (Programme) degree no more being offered by the University with the introduction of the new four-year undergraduate course, seats at most colleges for Political Science and History courses have been filled up.
Only 12 and 16 colleges issued a third list for the Political Science and History courses respectively.
Off-campus college Sri Aurobindo, which had slashed its cut-offs by as much as 22 per cent in History, 18 per cent in Political Science, 20 per cent in Botany and 19 per cent for Zoology in the second cut-off list, had not issued its third list till late night.
Admissions for the science courses have been closed in several colleges. Only 12 colleges remain open for admissions in the Mathematics course.
Admissions for the third cut-off will begin from tomorrow and continue till July 6.
