The fourth cutoff list is to be released on Thursday, however, the qualifying percentage requirement is not expected to drop by more than a mark or two for most popular courses at sought after colleges.
Admission to almost 41,000 seats have been approved. Of these, around 37,000 students have paid their fees; as published on HT. Students, whose admissions have been approved, have until noon on Tuesday to pay their admission fees online. DU has around 56,000 seats at its 60-odd constituent colleges.
However, seats for popular course choices may still be available under the fourth list in many colleges. While colleges like Kamala Nehru College are likely to close admissions to most popular courses and others like Ramjas College claimed that they are yet to collate data on the availability of seats, some institutes still have few seats left in sought after courses like BCom (Hons), BA Programme, English (Hons), and History (Hons), among others.
Miranda House has filled over 90% of their seats by the end of the third cycle of admissions. Though they still have a few seats left for courses like English (Hons) and BA Programme, the percentage point requirement is not expected to drop significantly in the fourth list, with most courses seeing no more than a 0.2% point drop.
Though History is expected to be closed at Miranda, few seats are still available at Lady Shri Ram College. LSR had closed admissions to History (Hons) under the third list, alongwith 17 other colleges such as Gargi and Hindu, but seats are now available because of withdrawals.
