Delhi University (DU) released its fourth cut-off list for admissions on Wednesday. Many colleges have now closed admissions to several courses while those that have kept admissions open have announced only a marginal dip in cut-offs.
The fourth cut-off saw a dip of 0.25 per cent from the previous list with the highest settling at 97.75 per cent for BA (Hons) Psychology course at Lady Shri Ram College for Women (LSR).
Students who have not yet secured a seat will find options running out as the cut-offs are not likely to dip further. In the third cut-off list, many colleges reopened their admission as applicants withdrew their admissions, but this was not the case in the fourth list.
Hindu College has closed 15 of its 17 courses with only B.Sc (Hons.) Statistics, B.A. (Hons.) English and Sociology open. Miranda House has closed 14 of the 18 courses it offers with seats still available for B.A. (Hons.) in English, Sociology, B.A. (Programme), and B.Sc (Hons.) Botany.

In South Campus, Lady Shri Ram College has kept only five of its 14 courses open. The courses open include B.A. in English, History, Journalism, Philosophy and Psychology — the cut-offs for the courses are 96.5, 96.25, 97.25, 91.5 and 97.75 respectively.
