Delhi University Monday announced the second cut-off list for admission to its undergraduate programmes, with a considerable drop in its percentages, even as some colleges closed the enrolment to popular courses such as B.Com and Economics Honours.
Ramjas College which had announced the highest cut-off at 99.25 per cent for B.Com Honours, 98.75 for B.Com and 98.5 for Economics Honours brought it down to 97.5 per cent.
The highest percentage in the second cut-off list has been announced by Lady Sri Ram College at 98.25 per cent for Psychology Honours. The percentage required for B.Com Honours is 97.5 per cent in the college.
Economics at Miranda House is available at 97.25 per cent, 96 per cent at College of Vocational Studies, 96.25 per cent at Daulat Ram College, 97 per cent at Shaheed Bhagat Singh College and Sri Guru Gobind Singh College of Commerce and 97.75 for SRCC.
The university had received 2.5 lakh applications for the 54,000 seats in 63 colleges.
In a major shift from previous years, no DU college had kept the ceiling at 100 per cent in the first cut-off list announced last week. However, the required percentage soared at almost all the colleges.
The students have three days to take admission under the second list following which the next cut-off list will be released.
This is for the first time that the university has introduced full-fledged online admission procedure for UG admissions unlike previous years when it used to be both online and offline.
The first day of the admission process under the first cut-off list saw chaos in a few colleges with the varsity portal crashing as soon as the cut-offs were released.
DU had announced this year that it will only release five cut-offs unlike previous years when the varsity issued up to ten cut-off lists.
