With the second cutoff list out of Delhi University, the admission seekers have breathed a sigh of relief as there is a decrease of 0.25 to 4 % in the cut offs of various subjects, compared to that of the first one published a week ago.
Almost all the courses in all the popular colleges of DU are taking admissions now and the cut offs have dipped in subjects like BCom (H), Economics, Physics and Mathematics, which remain as the favorites among the students. This decrease in the second list would help the students to get admission in their colleges of their choice through both campuses as well as off campus admissions. The list has been tagged as ‘realistic’ by both students and colleges, comparing it with the first one.
Majority of the colleges have opened admissions in the Economics (Honors) course and have kept the cutoffs at 95% and above. SRCC, which became unable to fill the seats for general category in their first list has decreased the cut off by 0.50%. The same went on with Kirori Mal College too which slashed its cut off by 0.75%.
B.Com (H) has also become open in many other colleges for general category students, but it failed to figure in SRCC’s second list as well. It is open in colleges like, Hindu, Hans Raj, LSR, Ramjas, Gargi, Sri Venkateswara, Kirori Mal, ARSD, Sri Aurobindo, Shyam Lal and Kamala Nehru among others.
The cutoff decrease has also been felt in the North Campus colleges with Hindu college decreasing the cutoff of subjects like philosophy and BSc physical science with chemistry dip by 3 percent points. There is a significant 2.5% dip from the first cutoff in BA programmes at the college. At Kiori Mal College the cut off for mathematics has dropped by 1.5% and in case of English it dropped by 1.25% in the second list.
Physics, which is one of the most popular courses in science, is still open in six of the campus colleges and overall in dozen others to get take up. At Gargi college, cut off has been reduced to 95%, while at Ramjas, Miranda House and Sri Venkateswara, it is open at 96%
