New Delhi: Students vying to get a seat in Delhi University for popular courses like Commerce, Economics and English need not worry as the courses still remain open for admission in the third cut off list whihc has been issued on Wednesday night.
    
As many as 25 colleges are offering admissions for the much-in-demand Commerce course. Among the popular colleges, Hindu, Hans Raj, IP College and Ramjas still have seats available for the course.
    
The drop in the cut off, however, is not very significant. In Hindu, where the second cut off was 96.5 - 99.5 percent, the third cut off is 96.25 - 99.25 percent. The cut off for Commerce at Ramjas and Hansraj too came down by 0.25 percent.
    
Withdrawals at some colleges, which had closed admission for the course in the second list, has resulted in admissions being reopened in the third list. Kamala Nehru, Lakshmibai and Maitreyi were among such colleges.
    
Admissions for Economics and English were still open in over 20 colleges, but the drop in cut off is similarly marginal. For Journalism, only two of the six colleges - Delhi College of Arts and Commerce and Maharaja Agrasen College - issued a third cut off.
    
With BA (Programme) degree no more being offered by the University with the introduction of the new four year undergraduate course, seats at most colleges for Political Science and History courses have been filled up.
    
Only 12 and 16 colleges issued a third list for Political Science and History courses respectively.
