A total of 1,18,878 applications had applied to DU under the first two cut-off lists. As many as 51,974 students had paid the fees till 5 pm on Friday, after which the payment gateway was closed, reported news agency PTI, quoting university officials.
Further, 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.
"We have 10 students who have applied to the B.Com programme. The cut-offs are likely to see a one per cent decline in the third list," he said.
