DU ninth cut-off out; admission details leave some confused
Delhi University on Sunday released its ninth cut-off list, as part of the special drive for admission of reserved category applicants to various undergraduate courses. However, the move gave no reason to cheer for unreserved students, as the varsity came out with no official statement regarding their admission.
Meanwhile, some reserved category applicants seeking admissions returned home in bewilderment, as a few colleges denied them admission. "These colleges told us that if we had earlier cancelled our admission from a DU college, we won't get admission here," a student claimed.
Another reserved category candidate, originally from Delhi College of Arts and Commerce, faced a tough time. After travelling two hours to reach Satyawati College, he was shocked to find out that he was ineligible for admission.
"I am clearing the cut-off at Satyawati College. But, when I reached the college and confirmed about the admission, it was of no use. The course which I wanted to pursue is available neither at Satywati Evening College Evening, nor Morning College. I would have been better off if I did not cancel my admission. DU should have told us this thing before."
With regards to the special admission drive, DU had issued a press statement saying: "Only such candidates would be considered for admission who are registered with University of Delhi, but are not admitted in any college, irrespective of category under any cut-off list. For details, with regards to variation in cut-off percentage, the candidates are advised to contact the respective colleges on Monday, the 7th August, 2017." The special categories includes SC, ST, OBC, PwD and KM.
As per the already notified schedule (admissions between on August 7 and 9), eligible candidates who meet the requirements notified in the ninth cut-off list are further advised to complete their admission formalities in the colleges concerned within the stipulated time.
