Luckily, students still have options in off-campus and evening colleges. Dyal Singh College (Evening) has not closed admissions to any of its courses, with offers English (Hons) open at 91 per cent, Political Science (Hons) at 89, BA Programme at 86, and BCom (Hons) at 93.50.

The first two cut-offs of the University saw over 27,000 students being admitted to various colleges, against the sanctioned strength of 56,000.

The varsity does not operate on a 'first come, first serve' basis, which could be the reason why the dip has not been more than 1.5 per cent in many prominent courses.
