The DU Admissions 2020’s second cut-off is likely to be announced on Saturday. The admissions for the second cut off, therefore, will begin on Monday.
After the release of The University of Delhi’s first cut-off, 22,186 applications have been approved out of a total of 59,730 applications. 11,248 number of applicants have paid their fees and confirmed their seats. Despite the high cut-offs, DU admissions are still seeing an ecstatic response and students are hopeful to get a seat.
There are still several applications left to be processed on Wednesday, which was the last day of applying for admissions to undergraduate courses on the basis of the first cut-off. Most of the top colleges will likely see only a marginal dip in the second cut-off.
The second cut-off is expected to be announced on Saturday, 17 October, 2020. Lady Shri Ram College, had declared the highest cut-off at 100 per cent for the Psychology, Economics and Political Science undergraduate courses in the first cut-off list. These courses will be open for the second round of admissions as well.
“The drop in all of DU admissions cut-offs will be marginal because we don’t want to risk over admission. Two of our other courses will likely be closed in the second list,” Principal Suman Sharma revealed without disclosing the names of the courses, reported The Indian Express.
The principal of Miranda House, Bijayalaxmi Nanda, said that the college’s Political Science undergraduate course has a total strength of 68. With 99 per cent cut off in the first round of admissions, the course will be open for the second round of admission for the students who belong to SC and OBC categories.
“I have approved 666 admissions as of 5 pm… In political science, we have approved 78 admissions of which 60 have paid. Admissions for the unreserved category will close in that programme. It is also likely to close for the unreserved category in Geography…,” the principal said.
Indraprastha College for Women is also expected to keep admissions open for most of the courses, barring various BA program combinations.
