DU fifth cut-off list expected; many colleges reopen admissions
Popular colleges such as Hindu, Shri Ram College of Commerce and Miranda House reopened admissions to much sought-after courses such as BA (honours) economics after the release of fourth cut-off list on Friday, July 6, 2012. Many colleges are moving to these reputed colleges as large number of candidates withdrew after the release of 4th cut-off list.
Kirori Mal College witnessed about 16 withdrawals in economics, admission to which was closed after the second cut-off list. The college witnessed maximum number of withdrawals in BCom (honours) course (22). Hindu, Sri Venkateswars, Miranda House and Gargi also witnessed withdrawals. However, SRCC reopened BA (H) economics course and enrolled 6 students on the first day of admissions through 4th cut-off list.
Sources from Gargi College revealed that the college had admitted more than 100 students against the available 62 seats for general category which dropped down to 100 after some students withdrew their admissions. The college is expecting more withdrawals in BCom (H) as it had admitted more students through the first list itself than its intake capacity.
Hans Raj College reopened admissions to BCom (H) course on July 6, 2012 after dropping the cut-offs by 0.25%. Many students that took admission came from KMC, Hindu and Jesus and Mary.
The declaration of fourth cut-off list revived new possibilities such as admissions to economics course was reopened and will remain open for the fifth cut-off list for Sri Venkateswara and Miranda House.
Sources from KMC revealed that the problem occurred with SRCC decreasing the cut-offs. The college had closed admission to economics course but number of students has gone down below the seats available due to the withdrawals. Now the college will have to re-open admissions through fifth list.
While Sri Venkateswara registered 12 withdrawals and KMC 40, many other colleges also recorded withdrawals. Sources from Hindu revealed that many students may cancel their admission as Hans Raj is expected to drop cut-off for BCom (H) from 98% to 96%.
Maitreyi College reported admission chaos on the first day of admissions through 4th cut-off list as Delhi University (DU) had printed wrong cut-off marks for BCom course offered by the college in the fourth cut-off list. Maitreyi declared its cut-off range for the course as 85.5% - 90%. However the correct cut-off is 88.5% - 90%. This resulted in more than 40 applicants visiting the college for admissions and college administration had to clarify the error to the candidates.
