DU sees a dip for the first time in number of applicants
For the first time in the history of Delhi University, the number of applications to Delhi University undergraduate courses has seen a dip. This year, a total of 2,50,914 applications were received by the university for the 54,000 seats in 63 colleges, as compared to last year’s 2,91,819 applications. Even though 3,60,460 applicants had registered at the DU admission portal, only 2,50,914 applicants paid the fees. Only those who pay the fees are considered as an applicant by the university. In 2014, the university had received 2.75 lakh applications.
Cutoffs set to rise again at off-campus colleges
Traditionally, only on-campus colleges used to come up with high cutoffs due to large number of students applying there. But over the past few years even off-campus colleges, located at far ends of the city, have been witnessing a sharp rise in cutoffs. The increasing demand for off-campus colleges has been attributed to increase in the number of applications being received by the university. College principals say the number of applicants to the university is almost five times higher than the total number of seats.
For instance, Shivaji College located in Raja Garden, Physics was at 88% in 2013 and 90% in 2014 but jumped to 95% in 2015. At Shayamlal College, which is located in Shahdara, the cutoff for English was 85% and 87% in 2013 and 2014, respectively, but jumped to 94% in 2015.
