Second cut-off list opens gates for aspirants in prominent DU colleges
With Delhi University's second cut-off being released on Friday, many aspirants were left in the lurch after finding out that they missed out on coveted courses in reputed North Campus colleges.
However, there was reason to cheer for other applicants, who succeeded in getting the course of their choice in other colleges.
Now, a sizeable chunk of these students have started flocking North Campus colleges to cancel their previous admission applications or to apply for transmigration within the same college.
Moreover, this year, the University introduced the provision of online cancellation.
Many students at Hindu College, who had made it in the first cut-offs, had now come to get their transmigration certificate. An overwhelming majority of them comprised Commerce students, who wanted to take admission in Economics (Hons).
"I had already got admission in Hindu College, but now that I have made it to the Economics (Hons), I am planning on cancelling my admission," said a student.
At Shri Ram College of Commerce, however, many aspirants were seen heartbroken as the college closed its doors for Economics (Hons) and that of BCom (Hons) remained sky high in the second cut-off.
"My son missed out SRCC by .25 per cent. We have taken admission in Hansraj College, but SRCC is SRCC," said Gurpreet Singh, a parent.
The longest crowds seeking cancellation of applications were seen at Daulat Ram College, as many students managed to secure admissions in colleges like Kirori Mal.
The crowd at Ramjas College also comprised mostly of students seeking cancellation. "Though this is a good college, Hindu College has a better faculty. So I opted to cancel my admission," said Rakesh, an aspirant.
At South Campus, many students had set themselves the gruelling task of migrating to North Campus, cancelling their admission in colleges such as Sri Venkateswara.
Meanwhile, at other colleges like Atma Ram Sanatan Dharma, Aryabhatta and Ram Lal Anand, crowds continued to remain in single digits.(additiional inputs from Tripti Bansal and Tushar Khandelwal)
