On the second day of admissions after the third cut-off list was released, the North Campus was not as crowded as it was on previous days.

At St. Stephen’s College, which has its own norms for selecting students, only those who had to deposit fees were seen.

Standing at the college entrance, Roshni of Janakpuri said: “Getting admission in St. Stephen’s is like a dream come true. I scored 91 per cent, applied for Chemistry Honours and cleared the interview too.”

On Friday, interviews for Philosophy Honours were conducted in the college.

Unlike St Stephen’s, Hindu College across the road appeared to be buzzing with activity.

A sizeable number of students and their parents could be seen. A woman sitting under a tree looked bored and exhausted.

The reason being the college was taking unduly long to cancel her child’s admission.

“We came here at 9 in the morning so that it would not take much time to go through the cancellation procedure. But it is taking too much time to even cancel the admission,” she said.

Among those who were standing in a queue to get seat in the college was Parul Harbans from Chhattisgarh. She wants to study sociology under the reserved category.

“It appears that the cut-offs have soared as compared to last year,” she said. She has been looking forward to getting admission into the university although Delhi is far away from her home State.

“My elder sister is in Miranda House and I want to study in the same university,” she said.

At Kirori Mal College, admission is still open for Economics, Hindi, English and Political Science in the general category and it was more crowded than other colleges in North Campus.

At nearby Ramjas College, a fair amount of students and parents were busy filling up forms as the college is still taking students for Commerce, Economics, Hindi, History, Political Science and Sanskrit.

Some outstation candidates who already have secured a seat in one of the campus colleges but couldn’t get hostel accommodation were busy searching for paying guest houses near the campus.
