Those wishing to take admission to Delhi University still have hope left as many sought after courses still remain open for admission in top colleges in the third cut-off list, which was released on Friday night. Some colleges, however, have closed admissions.
While Hindu, Hansraj, IP College and Ramjas still remain open for admission in most courses, Daulat Ram, Dyal Singh, Miranda House and Sri Venkateswara have closed admissions to many of their Arts and Commerce courses.
However, four colleges under the Delhi Sikh Gurdwara Management Committee — Guru Gobind Singh College of Commerce, SGTB Khalsa College, SGND Khalsa College and Mata Sundri College — have not released their third cut-off list.
