The student’s aspiring for admissions into Delhi Universities colleges breathe a sigh of relief as the sky high cutoff of 100% decreases by 0.25-1% thus giving students another chance. The cutoffs that will be declared on Monday night may witness a greater dip for the social sciences and humanities.
The second list that was released by Kirori Mal College and Deshbandhu College witnessed a similar trend. The cutoff for History (Hons) decreased from 95.5%
to 94.75% at KMC , political Science (hons) is now decreased to 97% . While Deshbandhu College has closed admissions to B.Com (hons) and economics (hons) due to filling up of seats, has slashed the cutoffs for Histolry (hons) to 86% and political science (hons) to 87%.
College claims they are overbooked.
The Sri Ram College of commerce has also shut admissions for B.Com (hons) but will release a second list for Economics (hons). “There will be a second cutoff list for economics (hons) with a dip of 0.25-0.50%. But there is no second list for commerce as seats are already full. In fact, we have given admission to more number of students than seats available,” said Ashok Sehgal, officiating principal, SRCC. The first cutoff for economics was 98.75%
Ramjas college has also closed the admissions to several courses due to filling up of seats.

Across subjects there will be a decrease of about 0.25-3% (in cutoffs). However, seats for political science and statistics are full,” said principal Vijay K Sharma.
“There would not be much decrease in cutoffs. They would drop by 0.25-0.5% in different subjects. There are many courses like sociology and botany which are already full,”claimed Anju Srivastava, acting principal of Hindu College with a hint of caution.
