New Delhi: The Delhi University on Saturday declared cut-offs for a special drive to fill some vacant seats even as most of the courses at the prominent colleges have been closed for admissions. Candidates can apply for admission under the special drive on 14 and 15 November.
The university has advised candidates to check course-wise and category-wise availability of seats in the college they are applying for. The colleges will release a merit list and approve candidates based on vacant seats available on 16 and 17 November.
At Hansraj College and Hindu College, all the Arts and Commerce courses are closed for admissions in the general category. Kirori Mal College only has seats left under BA (Honours) Hindi, for which the cut-off has been pegged at 90 percent.
Kamala Nehru College has closed admissions for almost all its arts and commerce courses except for BA (Honours) history and BA (Honours) Sanskrit for which the minimum requirement of marks is 94.50 percent and 62 percent respectively.
Lady Shri Ram College has pegged the cut-off for BA (Honours) English at 96.50 percent, a decline of two percent from the fifth cut-off. The college requires 97.50 percent for BA (Honours) Journalism, down by one percent from the last cut-off.
Miranda House has pegged the cut-off for BA (Honours) history at 98.50 percent, a decline of 0.25 percent from the fifth list.
Ramjas College has pegged the cut-off for BA (Honours) economics at 98.15 percent, down from 98.25 percent from the fifth list, BA (Honours) English at 96.75 percent, down from 97 percent from the last list. The other courses that are available at the college are BA (Honours) Hindi and BA (Honours) Sanskrit.
At Aryabhatta College, the cut-offs for BA (honours) English, BCom, BSc (Honours) Mathematics, BA programme (economics and history) and BA programme (history and political science) are 91 percent, 94 percent, 93 percent, 93.5 percent and 94 percent respectively.
The downrange is between one percent to three percent, an official said, adding they are not afraid to reduce the cut-offs since the intake of students is limited to the number of seats available.
"In case 20 students apply for four available seats, we will release a merit list of students and the top four students will be eligible to get admission. Also, students who have secured their admissions to any of the colleges in the previous lists cannot cancel their admissions and apply to these colleges," he added.
