DU Admissions 2020 are being conducted online this time, owing to the pandemic. Students saw one of the highest cut-off lists of all time. Admissions under the second cut-off ended on 21st October 2020, Wednesday, and fee payments shall continue till 23rd October 2020, Friday. Even though the final number of students who took admission in Delhi University under the second cut off is not final yet, students can expect a slight dip in the next cut-off list. However, a few college principals have shared that they are likely to close admissions for a lot of courses.
Kamala Nehru College, one of the colleges which closed the highest number of courses for unreserved categories, is likely to close admissions for all courses. “Apart from Sanskrit, we are likely to fill our seats in all courses in this round of admissions. In other years, there used to be several rounds of admissions for reserved categories, but this year we are already through with the admissions for all reserved categories. Of course, this may change after the third and fourth lists come out in other colleges and we might see withdrawals and movement between colleges at that time”, shared Kalpana Bhakuni, Principal, Kamala Nehru College.
Khalsa College too closed admissions for 13 courses in the second cut-off list. “We had a 96.75% cut-off for unreserved seats in B.Com (Honours) in the first list and received 120 admissions against our 60 seats. In the second list, we had around 20 withdrawals and we are still overcapacity. We had four withdrawals in English which had also closed after the first list and one or two in a few other courses,” shared Principal Jaswinder Singh.
Courses like Political Science and Geography at Miranda House closed for the unreserved categories after the first cut-off. Even Sociology is likely to be closed after the second-cut off. However, Principal Bijayalaxmi Nanda shared that most courses shall remain open.
