DU’s 6th cut-off list to fill vacant seats out
With around 6,500 seats in various undergraduate courses yet to be filled, the Delhi University (DU) on Friday released its sixth cut-off list for vacant seats. But this list too fails to ease the anguish of General category students as most colleges have sought 90-plus percentage.
Sri Venkiteshwara College has put up 93 per cent for admission to Sociology (Hons), while Kirori Mal College has asked for 95.23 per cent for Political (Hons) and 94 per cent for English (Hons). Sri Ram College and Ramjas College in the North Campus have closed admissions for all courses.
In off-campus colleges, seats in the General category are still vacant in popular courses. Gargi College has sought 94 per cent for Economics (Hons) and 94.25 per cent for B.Com (Hons). For B.Com, the cut -off at Shivaji College is 93.75 per cent. At Shyam Lal College, 11 seats are still vacant for B.Com course, for which the cut-off is 90 per cent. At Shaheed Bhagat Singh College, six seats are vacant in History (Hons.), for which the cut-off is 85 per cent.
For reserved category seats, a substantial dip in marks has been observed. At Hanraj College, the cut-off for SC and ST category students is 87 and 78 per cent, respectively, in Economics (Hons).
At Kirori Mal College, the cut-off for the course is 86.5 and 75 per cent for SC and ST students, respectively. For B.Com, it is 86.75 and 70 per cent for SC and ST category students, respectively, at the college.
After DU released five cut-off lists to fill vacant seats, it asked colleges to come up with their merit lists. These lists were released in two phases.
