The second cutoff list too may not see too much of a dip
Delhi University (DU) will be releasing the second cutoff list today, October 17, for undergraduate admission in its affiliated colleges for the 2020-21 academic session.
DU admission has gone completely online this year due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The cut-off list would be available on the official site of Delhi University. In addition, individual colleges too would release their cutoff list for all courses.
The first cutoff list of DU, as expected, had reached the 100% mark. Now, the second cutoff list too may not see too much of a dip. According to DU officials, about 35,000 seats of the total 70,000 on offer have already been filled despite the high cut-offs. Hindu College for example has only 65 seats left for the second round of admission. Also, several top DU colleges have filled almost 100 per cent of their seats. Seats in humanities subjects like History and Political Science in many top colleges are exhausted.
However, after publication of the second cutoff students who have already taken admission in any DU affiliated college and are seeking a change in college will be able to apply for the other college only after cancelling the current admission.
And to change the college or course or take fresh admission after the second cutoff list is published students will have to log in to their dashboards on the UG admission portal of DU. Once the college approves admission and the name of the student appears in the admission list the students will receive a link on their DU admission portal dashboard on which they must submit the college/course fees due. This fee can only be paid in online mode. Once the fee is paid within the deadline, students can save the acknowledgment slip and regard their admission as confirmed.
A record 3,54,003 students had applied for about 70,000 undergraduate seats at DU. The number is 1.5 lakh higher than last year. This being one of the reasons why the cut off in the first list has been so high. Also the number of students scoring above 95 per cent in board exams too has gone up drastically this year. Adding to the list, several top scorers who aimed to study abroad decided to stay back and apply in DU because of the pandemic. As a result, apart from the top colleges, the cut-off for evening colleges as well as lesser-known off-campus colleges has gone higher than last year.
