The University of Delhi (DU) released its second cut off list on 3rd July 2019, Wednesday. The admission process for the students who made it in the second cut off list of DU will begin today onwards (4th July 2019) in which students have to get their documents verified at the colleges they wish to take admission in. DU will release its third cut off list if seats remain vacant in the courses of any college.
As far as the marks required for admission in DU through the second list is concerned, it is quite unlikely that the cut off will see much of a dip. By now, over 23,000 students have already taken admission in various colleges based on the first cut off list of DU 2019. This is much more than last year’s admissions through the first cut off list which was less than 10,000. The officials at Delhi University have claimed that this year there has been “over admission” which is going to result in the second cut off list being higher than usual.
Rajeev Gupta, the Head of the Admissions Committee, advised DU aspirants to shortlist the colleges and courses soon. He said that the number of seats offered for each course at the university is limited and the fact that over admissions have happened under the first list does not let the cut off of the second list drop much. Only a marginal drop in the second list cut off can be expected, particularly in some of the most popular courses.
The highest cut-off score for DU admissions 2019 has been for the course of B.A. (Honours) Political Science at the famous Hindu College. As compared to the cut off of last year, the overall cut-off scores are also on the higher end. The primary reason for this is that the number of students who have secured more than 95% marks in class 12th board exams has been much more this year.
Many officials and career guides are giving their two cents on the DU admissions 2019 and suggesting students to not compromise on courses just for the sake of getting a seat in the college.
