Many colleges shut windows for their prominent course
After sky high cut-offs were recorded in the first list – termed by Delhi University officials as "Utopian " due to its unrealistic eligibility criteria –aspirants were hopeful that many prestigious courses will still have openings in the second cut-off.
However, many prominent colleges closed their window in the second cut-off for as many as ten subjects. At least two courses were closed by several colleges, with Hindu College and Lady Shri Ram College gave heartbreak to many aspirants as around ten courses were filled to the brim post the first cut-off.
At Hindu College, BA Political Science (Hons), BA Programme, BSc Physics (Hons) and BSc Statistics (Hons) were the courses which closed post the first cut-off.
At LSR college, Economics (Hons), BA Programme, BCom (Hons), Sociology (Hons) were amongst the courses closed.
Gargi College, another women's college, shut it's doors for five courses, including BA Programme, History (Hons) and Philosophy (Hons).
Daulat Ram college closed four prominent courses, namely History (Hons), Political Science (Hons), Bio Chemistry and Zoology.
Kirori Mal College had four of its courses filled, including literature courses like Urdu and Sanskrit (Hons). Even the coveted English (Hons) did not make it to the second cut-off.
At Ramjas Collegge, only Botany (Hons) did not make it to the second cut-off.
At Sri Venkateswara College, Sanskrit (Hons), Physics (Hons) and the hotly contested Life Sciences courses did not make it to the second cut-off.
SGTB Khalsa College, which had set the ball rolling with the highest cut-off in the first cut-off, unsurprisingly, had all the courses making it to the second list.
