The third cut-off list for admissions to Delhi University announced late on Wednesday evening should come as a relief to many students who could not get the course or college of their choice due to the very high cut-offs in the first two lists. While a large number of courses are still available in many colleges, including Hindu and Hans Raj, in Shri Ram College of Commerce, admissions for all general category courses have closed.

General category students would still be able to take admission in Hans Raj College where the cut-off for Commerce Honours has now been pegged at 96.5 - 98 per cent; for Economics at 96.5 per cent and for English at 93-96 per cent. While admissions for Hindi, Geography and Political Science have closed, History is still available at 91-94 per cent.

Similarly, at Hindu College, Commerce is available at 96.25-99.25, Economics at 96.5 and English at 93.5-94.5. The admissions for all the other courses have come to a close.

On the South Campus, Lady Shri Ram College would still be taking in students for its Economics (96.5) and English Honours (95) whereas it has completed its admissions for Commerce Honours. However, History is still available at 94.5 per cent cut-off.

At the other end, Venkateswara, which had been judicious in keeping its cut-offs high in order to avoid falling into the trap of over-admissions, has completed its admissions for the much-sought-after Commerce and Economics courses. But English is still available at 93-96 and Hindi at 72 per cent. But while the demand for seats in these premium colleges is always high, many other colleges, like Ram Lal Anand, which had surprised many by announcing a 100 per cent cut-off for its B. Tech in Computer Science course in the first list, has already filled up most of its seats. Only Hindi is still available here at 63 per cent.
