Delhi University announced its sixth admissions cut-off list for Other Backward Classes candidates on Wednesday. There are vacant OBC seats in a number of courses in many colleges especially for Commerce and Humanities.
OBC candidates making the cut can seek admission on July 15 and 16. A seventh list may be released on July 17. To make sure that colleges fill their OBC seats, the university has asked colleges to put on hold the conversion of vacant OBC seats to open seats and has also made provisions for the release of a sixth and seventh list for OBC candidates only.
The sixth list sees Delhi College of Arts and Commerce continuing with its fifth list cut-offs for both B.Com and B. Com (Honours) at 79.5 per cent to 81.5 per cent and 83-86 per cent respectively.
