Cut-offs dip for many courses in North Campus
The third cut-off released by Delhi University offered respite to students, with many colleges seeing a marginal dip in the cut-offs and some coveted courses that were closed in the second cut-off being reopened in the third. The dips varied between .5 to 3 per cent.
SGTB Khalsa College – which released the highest first list – saw the sharpest dips, with 3.5 per cent in BCom (Hons) and 2.3 per cent in BSc Electronics (Hons) course which had the maximum cut-off in the first list has seen a 2.3 percent dip at 93.66 per cent. The reductions have been attributed to low level of admissions at the college.
Though several courses are filled at Hindu College, BA Economics (Hons) and English (Hons) survived the third cut-off, with 97.25 and 96.5 per cent, respectively. The college saw an average dip of .5 per cent across its available courses.
Seeing that students missed out on top colleges, a few such colleges reopened their courses. Most notably, Lady Shri Ram College reopened Economics (Hons) at 97.5 per cent and Kirori Mal College reopened English (Hons) course at 95 per cent.
At LSR, cut-offs for Economics, English and Journalism (Hons) courses stayed above the 97 per cent threshold; meanwhile, KMC saw reductions of one per cent for BCom and .5 per cent for BCom (Hons).
At Miranda House, English (Hons) remained available at 96.25 per cent, despite the vast number of applications. The cut-off for Physics (Hons) stayed at 95.33 per cent, while for Sanskrit (Hons) it dipped to as low as 69.5 percent.
A few courses at Ramjas College remained open, namely Economics (Hons) at 96.5 per cent, English (Hons) at 95 per cent and History (Hons) at 94 percent.
In South Campus, cut-offs at Sri Venkateswara College dipped between .25 and one per cent. Popular courses like Economics (Hons) at 96.5 per cent and B Com (Hons) at 96.25 percent remained open due to poor response in the first two cut-offs.
The University also released the second cut-off list for BCom and BA (Programme) in Non-Collegiate Women's Education Board (NCWEB). Miranda House recorded the highest cut-off for both courses at 87 (BA Programme) and 88 per cent (BCom).
Following suit was Hansraj College, asking 86 per cent for BA (Programme) and 88 per cent for B Com. Of the 26 colleges with NCWEB courses, Aditi Mahavidyalaya and Bhagini Nivedita College continued to have the lowest cut-offs, hovering around 71 per cent.
