South Campus admissions: Some relieved, rest downcast
Delhi University's third cut-off list has brought some relief as well as heartache for aspirants as even though many have been able to secure seats in several South Campus colleges, several students said that they were forced to choose subjects in which they were not interested in.
The reason for this is because of the fact that many colleges in North Campus have shut its doors post the first and second cut-off lists with only a handful of colleges remaining there.
One of the student, Shreya, who came to Sri Venkateshwara College told Millennium Post that she wanted to opt for BCom (P) but has to adjust according to the cut-off and is left with no other option but Economics (H).
"Sri Venkateshwara College is much better in comparison to other colleges, but the lack of parking space and transportation issues is being a major drawback," said Nitasha, an aspirant seeking BSc Life Sciences.
A student from Rajasthan said, "Sri Venkateshwara college is the only left option for me as seats were filled in Gargi College."
In other less popular colleges in South Campus, a handful of students went to Aryabhatta College to reserve a seat.
Many had dropped
in colleges like Atma Ram Sanatan Dharma College, located in Dhaula Kuan and Ram Lal Anand as many subjects saw a dip in the range of 2-3 per cent.
"I just wanted to freeze my seat in this college as my marks were falling
within the cutoff. I had 90 per cent for BSc Computer Sciences," said Sourodeep Singh, an aspirant.
Anxious parents waiting for the third cut off heaved a sigh of relief as their children managed to bag a seat in Delhi University.
Parents of a student Naman Singh said that even after scoring 92 per cent, their son is getting admission in the third cut off.
Singh is now seeking to take admission in BSc Computer Science at Atma Ram Sanatan Dharma College.
However, despite many students taking admissions in such colleges, the withdrawals were also noted especially in Atma Ram Sanatan Dharma College with more than 70 withdrawals on Friday, showed results.
There are some who are now looking forward to the fourth cut-off list.
"Finally I got admission somewhere. We would most probably seek another college if the cut off percentage comes down in the next cut off," said Suchi, who took admission in Ram Lal Anand College.
