DU second cut-off 2018: Planning to rent PG?
There is a rise in property rates which is why the homeowners in and around North Campus are giving their properties on rent to ‘PG managers’, and living elsewhere. “The value of a 100-sq yard property has increased from Rs 3 crore to Rs 4 crore in the span of a year, and there is tremendous competition among PG managers,” said Bobby Grover, another property dealer. Even students have found a way to earn a profit by turning ‘aggregators’. Students direct newcomers seeking accommodation in PGs free of charge, depending on their requirements. In return, they receive 15-day rent from the ‘PG managers’.
DU Second Cut-off: Application increased from southern states
Between 2016 and 2018, applications from the Kerala board jumped from 601 to 2,000; the Telangana board saw a rise from 539 to 1,484; and Andhra Pradesh from 394 to 604. “DU has a good international ranking and a great pool of alumni, so everybody wants to come here. This shows the diversity of our campus,” said Gurpreet Singh Tuteja, deputy dean, students welfare and OSD admission.
DU second cut-off 2018: From Kerala, Andhra, Telangana, a spike in applications
According to officials, admission figures at popular colleges under the first cut-off, which ended on June 21, suggest that close to 70 per cent have been taken up by students from southern states. But unlike previous years, when Kerala and Tamil Nadu had the lion’s share, this time it’s different. “This year, seats have been distributed equally among students from Kerala, Telangana, Andhra Pradesh and Tamil Nadu,” said SRCC principal Simrit Kaur. Officials at Hindu College as well as Lady Shri Ram College for Women echoed the same.
BA Programme commands maximum admissions in Delhi University
Admission figures released by the university after the first list also revealed that maximum admissions (1,889) had taken place in the BA Programme course across colleges. Hindu College principal Anju Srivastava acknowledges that there have been “success stories” of BA Programme alumni doing well in civil services exam. But it isn’t the only reason. Yashavi Kumud, a second-year student of BA Programme, said she opted for the course for other reasons: “It was always my preference because it is interdisciplinary. In my third year, I will get to study courses like international relations and gender, along with other subjects, making it more like a liberal arts education offered in the West. I want to work with the UN, so it helps to understand how different disciplines merge with each other.”
BA Programme in DU is a hit!

Career Counsellor Mrinalini Batra's take on admission in foreign colleges
"The admissions process for the US begins in earnest a good 12 months ago so it would be rare to find a great program that is still accepting applications. Also, keep in mind that you need to apply for a visa even after admission. One, it is a process which requires you to have some time in hand and secondly, most countries are becoming increasingly strict in processing student visas. The most recent here is the UK which has removed India from the group of countries which are in the ‘low risk’ category," Mrinalini Batra said .
