DU admission process under 1st cut-off list closes
NEW DELHI [Maha Media]: The Delhi University’s admissions under the first cutoff list closed on Wednesday with the varsity approving 37.14 per cent of over 59,000 applications, officials said. The first completely online admission process commenced on Monday and ended at 5 pm on Wednesday.
According to data shared by the varsity, out of 59,730 applications, it has so far approved 22,186 applications, while 11,248 aspirants have paid the fees. Shri Ram College of Commerce (SRCC) principal Simrit Kaur said the college has had 125 admissions under the BA (Honours) Economics and 121 under BCom (Honours). The college had announced a cut-off of 99.50 per cent for BCom (Honours) and 99 per cent for BA (Honours) Economics.
“We are happy with the admissions that have taken place, especially for the Economics (Honours) course. The cutoffs were decided after lots of analysis. We kept the cutoff at 99 per cent for Economics (Honours) rather than keeping it higher and it was done after lots of discussions,” she said. Suman Sharma, principal of Lady Shri Ram College of Women, said the data of admissions would be available only on Thursday.
“There have been quite a few numbers of applications and we are in the process of approving them. We have to be very careful in analysing documents. “In one of the subjects, we might have exceeded the number of seats while in another course, we have admitted an optimum number of students. The cutoffs for the second list will see a marginal decline and that marginal decline has to be decided,” Sharma said. At Rajdhani College, there have been a total of 380 admissions, with 60 students being admitted to BA (Honours) History, 54 to Mathematics (Honours) and 35 to Political Science (Honours) with more than 35 per cent of the seats being filled, according to data shared by college principal Rajesh Giri.
The varsity had received over 3.54 lakh applications for admission to 70,000 seats. This year, the admission process has gone entirely online owing to the coronavirus pandemic. At Hansraj College, 293 admissions happened to arts and commerce courses while 277 admissions have happened to science courses.
