College has already begun for most undergraduate students for the academic year 2015, but the Delhi University authorities, irrespective, has decided to come up with more cut-off lists for its admissions this year.
The university had earlier announced that it would not come up with more than more than seven cut-off lists, according to which the admission process ended on July 27. However, there are a considerable amount of seats still vacant in the majority of colleges and DU has decided to give a chance to those who missed the opportunity. It will now come up with three more cut-off lists to accommodate more students.
“In continuation of the previous notification and as per data provided by the colleges, few seats for different categories are still vacant in some of the colleges. Therefore, it has been decided that the colleges shall fill these vacant seats,” Deputy Registrar (Academics), Rohan Rai said in a statement to PTI.
The admission procedure will now continue till August 12. The colleges have been asked to send the data of vacant seats course-wise, along with the cut-offs. We have also sent instructions to colleges on details to be uploaded, which include OMR numbers, Class 12 aggregate in best-of-four subjects, courses in which candidates are enrolled and categories,” Rai added.
The DU cut-offs this year were a major reason of dismay for many students as they didn’t fulfil the eligibility criteria in most colleges. With such high cut-offs and marginal drops in every list, there were less takers for admissions resulting in vacancy of seats.
The admissions usually end with a fourth cut-off list every year and a further list is only announced if there are withdrawals in colleges
