In the ongoing process for UG admissions, Delhi University has scheduled the fourth cut off list to be released on July 15. Only five cut-offs will be released this year unlike previous years and third cut off also didn’t give much hope to expectant students. Although there was a dip but it was marginal.
There are still seats vacant in most of the college except most sought after ones, and a fourth cut-off is likely to be beneficial for percentage holders in 70s-80s.
DU Third cut off list has been published on 10th July 2016 at the official web portal of Delhi University, www.du.ac.in. Students who have missed out admissions in their first choice colleges due to less percentage might have fair enough chances to upgrade their college. The expectancy of dip in cut off is 0.5 to 1 percent. However this is just an average figure but it’s for sure that drop will be very marginal. The first and second cut-off list for Delhi University admissions have already been released on June 30 and July 4 respectively.
The official release by the varsity mentions, the candidates are required to contact the respective colleges on Monday, July 11, 2016.
More than 60% of seats have already been filled after declaration of first two cutoff’s. In North Campus, Shri Ram College of Commerce has 40 empty seats, Hansraj College has 465, Kamla Nehru College has 384, Hindu College has 100, Ramjas College has 734 and Daulat Ram College has 64 seats to be filled in subsequent rounds.
“There are just a few seats that remain for courses such as political science (Hons), English, economics and the BA programme, so the cutoff for these subjects will remain the same. For Hindi and Sanskrit, as large numbers of seats are left, the cutoff will come down,” said Savita Roy, principal Daulat Ram College.
SRCC will come up with the 3rd cut off for 30 left out seats of Economics (Hons). However, Admissions to Bcom (Hons) have been closed. Lady Shri Ram College for women will come out with 3rd cut off for all the programmes except Sociology (Hons) and Hindi (Hons).
“The cutoff for history and economics will see a dip in the third list. As we are almost about to fill seats for physics and chemistry (Hons), the dip in cutoff will be marginal,” said Anju Srivastava, Hindu College principal.
Candidates can access the DU 3rd cut off from the official web portal of the Delhi University and some of the colleges have also released the cut-offs for admissions in the due course of time.
