The Delhi University (DU) on Saturday will release the third cut-off list on its official website – du.ac.in – for its undergraduate admissions.
Based on the first and second cut-off lists, DU has till now admitted more than 48,000 students after receiving over 1.8 lakh applications. The total number of seats in all DU colleges that are open for admissions is 70,000.
Most seats in top courses like Economics (H), BCom (H), English (H) were filled up after the first cut-off list was released on September end.
As many as 51,974 students had paid the fees till 5 pm on Friday, after which the payment gateway was closed, university officials were quoted as saying by PTI.
As many as 10,591 applications have been approved by college principals, they said.
Manoj Khanna, principal of Ramjas College, said the college authorities are treading cautiously as they do not want to admit more students than the number of seats.
"This year, we are planning to go for NAAC (National Assessment and Accreditation Council) accreditation and we want to maintain a decent student-teacher ratio, which is an important criterion. We had kept the cut-off at 100 per cent for Political Science (Honours) in the second list because we had only two vacant seats. We have had 33 admissions to the course for 31 seats," he added.
Dr Jaswinder Singh, principal of Sri Guru Tegh Bahadur Khalsa College, said nearly 440 seats out of 820 have been filled up.
