Little hope for DU aspirants after first list

New Delhi: Four days after the first cut off list was announced at Delhi University, colleges like Sri Ram College of Commerce (SRCC) have already managed to fill up their seats for their B Com Honours course. This despite the whopping 100 per cent cut off for non commerce students. However, there are many students with high grades who are yet to secure admission.

Other Delhi University colleges like Hindu and Miranda House have also closed admissions for most of its Honours courses. Hansraj, Kirori Mal, Khalsa, Lady Shri Ram, Venkateswara and Kamla Nehru have come out with second lists but the fall in cut-offs is an average 0.5 per cent for most courses.

The university, this year, has done away with the centralised application forms and had asked colleges to fix their own cut offs based on this years Class XII results and previous cut off trends, the rider being that every students who makes the cut has to be given admission. But parents say this system is not foolproof.

"The earlier system was better... Colleges knew where they stood and how many to take... Now we are all just groping in the dark," said a concerned mother.

There are four more cut off lists that will come out by July 7, offering some hope for those who haven't yet made the cut.
