Plenty of seats are still up for grabs at the Delhi University’s (DU) top colleges — barring Hindu College and Miranda House — with most courses still open for admissions across disciplines as per the third cut-off released by the university Saturday. However, the dip in cut-off has been marginal.
At the Hindu College, only two non-science courses were open in the second list — Economics at 99.25% and BCom (Hons) at 99%. In the third list too, only these remain open with a marginal dip of 0.25 percentage points each in the cut-off. All science courses too remain closed except BSc (Programme) Physical Science with Electronics at 96.33%.
Similarly, Miranda House had also closed multiple programmes in the second list. In addition to them, even Economics has closed now. The non-science courses that remain open are Bengali (70%), History (99%), Philosophy (97.25%) and Sociology (98.25%). Among these, Philosophy has re-opened after being closed in the second list. All science programmes were closed at Miranda House in the second list, but BSc (Programme) Physical Science with Computer Science has opened up in the third list at 97%.
However, in several other premier colleges — Lady Shri Ram College, Ramjas College, Hansraj College, SRCC and Kirori Mal College (KMC) among others — most courses are still open for admission.
At LSR, for example, a majority of the courses are open. The only courses which are closed are Maths, Hindi, Philosophy and Sanskrit. The cut-off for the open courses, however, is still very high.
