Several top colleges keep their most sought after courses open
There are good tidings for those who could not make the first-cut at Delhi University, with several top colleges keeping their most coveted courses across all streams open in the substantially lower second cut-off list released late on Thursday evening.
Hindu College’s most-sought after Economics (Honours) course is still open, with its cut-off reduced by 1 per cent to 98.25-94.75 per cent. Its other top course B.Com (Honours) has also reduced by .25 per cent and is now in the range of 99-96 per cent. The History (Honours) cut-off, however, still remains the same at 99-91 per cent. The college, still with the highest cut-offs, has kept open all its courses open except Sociology (Honours).
Shri Ram College of Commerce which usually never has a second list has also kept its Economics (Honours) course open with a marginal reduction of .25 per cent to rest at 97.5-96.5 per cent.
Hans Raj College History (Honours) cut-off has fallen drastically by almost 7 per cent and is now in the range of 92 to 89 per cent. Its Economics (Honours) cut-off has also fallen by 1 per cent and is now in the range of 96.75 to 95.75 per cent. Its B.Com (Honours), though open, remains the same at 98.25 to 96.25 per cent. The college has only closed its English (Honours) course.
Ramjas College has seen a reduction only in its Economics (Honours) which is now 96.7 to 93.75 and History (Honours) which now ranges from 95 to 84.5 per cent. Its Political Science (Honours), B.A. (Programme) and B. Com (Honours) are filled, but all its other courses are open with the same cut-offs.
Kirori Mal College has closed its B.A. (Programme), Economics (Honours), Geography (Honours) and Urdu course but its other courses have seen marginal reductions with B.Com (Honours) available in the range of 96.74 to 96 per cent, B.Com going for 94.99 to 94.75 and History (Honours) in the range of 93.99 to 86 per cent.
Miranda House has closed its Sociology, Hindi and Geography (Honours) course, with all the other courses available at substantially reduced cut-offs. Its Economics (Honours) ranges from 96.5 to 95.25 and History (Honours) is available at 95 to 88.5 per cent.
Daulat Ram College has kept its B.Com (Honours) open at 97.25-95.25 and English (Honours) at 91.5 to 85 per cent.
South Campus colleges have also reduced their cut-offs and have mostly kept open most of their coveted courses. Sri Venkateshwara College has only filled its History (Honours) and English (Honours) course. There have been reductions from .5 to 1 per cent with its B.Com available for 95.5 per cent; B.Com (Honours) in the range of 97.5 to 96.5 and Economics (Honours) for 96.75 to 95.27 per cent.
On the other hand, the all-girls Lady Shri Ram College has closed most of its courses, but has B.Com (Honours) at a marginally reduced percentage of 96.5. Economics (Honours) also marginally reduced at 96.75 per cent. Its Hindi and Sanskrit (Honours) courses are still open at very low cut-offs.
Surprisingly, lesser-known colleges like Keshav Mahavidyalaya have closed their admissions completely.
In the Science section, Hindu College has completely filled all its courses except Chemistry (Honours) with 94.66 per cent and Statistics (Honours) with 97-94 per cent.
Hans Raj College has also closed its Science courses like Physics (Honours), B.Sc. (Physical Sciences), Botany (Honours) and Chemistry (Honours) and has kept Zoology (Honours) with a percentage of 89.33 and Mathematics (Honours) open at 95 per cent. Less popular sciences are also available at reduced points.
Ramjas College has closed only its Mathematics (Honours) course with all other Science courses available at significantly reduced cut-offs.
Many colleges could not cope with the number of students who came for admissions and were therefore forced to keep open courses with almost the same cut-offs.
