Despite the fact that DU has around 70,000 sanctioned UG seats, its admission policy requires colleges to admit all students who meet the published cut-offs, resulting in an increase in the total intake in many courses. The last period for tuition payment under the third cut-off list ended on Saturday evening, allowing over 60,000 students to secure admission to various undergraduate courses in over 60 Delhi University campuses.
According to information provided by the university’s admissions division, DU received 170,696 applications until the third cut-off, with 60,155 candidates paying their fees by 5 p.m.
Today, the university is likely to disclose a special cut-off for students who had the required percentage as per the three cut-offs but were unable to gain admission owing to a variety of factors, subject to the availability of places in colleges. A member of the admissions committee also stated that until the special cut-off process is completed, the university website would not allow for the cancellation of admission.
The special cut-off is only for students who had the required scores in the previous three lists but were unable to gain admission due to unforeseen circumstances or who withdrew their application. However, this is contingent on college places being available. The canceling process has been put on hold in order to prevent students from moving between universities, according to the official.
Candidates who meet the special cut-off can enroll between October 26 and 27 and pay their fees by October 29. On October 30, the fourth cut-off will be announced.
Seven of the 11 undergraduate courses that announced a 100 percent cut-off in the first cut-off list this year will be closed in the fourth cut-off list.
Manish Kansal, the Hindu College’s admissions convener said that most course seats are likely to remain closed for the unreserved category after the special cut-off, but it is likely to remain open for the unreserved category after the special cut-off.
