Few South Campus seats still up for grabs
With a day left for admissions in the second cut-off list to end, seats in many South Campus colleges are finally starting to fill, after an initial poor show of students post the first cut-off.
Many students often take admission in South Campus colleges so as to secure a seat in Delhi University, while waiting for better options in third cut-off.
The highest number of admissions has been in Sri Venkateswara College, with a total of 487 admissions so far. On Monday, around 108 students took admission in the College.
Asked about a third cut-off, members of the college's admission committee remained tight-lipped claiming they will deliberate on the admission data after Tuesday.
"In the general category, BSc Chemistry (Hons) may not make it to the third list. Further, courses like Physics and Life Sciences were closed after they got the required number of admissions," said Dr Venkata, a member.
However, aspirants still have reasons to cheer, as admission in coveted courses like BCom and BA Economics (Hons) is still up for grabs.
"In BCom, just one student took admission and in Economics (Hons), around four-five," Dr Venkata added.
A stone's throw away from Sri Venkateswara College is Atma Ram Sanathan Dharma College, where 172 students have taken admission so far. The college's principal, Dr Gyantosh K Jha, said: "We cannot say that a particular course is popular. We have students applying in a wide range of courses. We have so far had around 40 withdrawals".
At Aryabhatta College, where crowds were virtually non-existent so far, the admission process has finally taken off.
However, as many as 15 admissions were stuck in the pipeline which will commence from Tuesday.
"We had around 30 admissions on Monday, although some of them are stuck in the pipeline. We had a lot of applications for Psychology and believe that the course may not make it to the third list," said an admission committee member from Aryabhatta College.
