Avni Gupta, who has now taken admission in Miranda House, said, “The second cut-off is still high. I wanted to study Economics and English honours course but I don't think I will be able to qualify. So, I have now enrolled for a BA (Pass) programme.”

Neeraj Parihar, who is seeking admission in Motilal Nehru College, said he will be happy to get admitted in any course in DU.

"I wanted to study B.Com honours but if I get admitted into any course in Delhi University, I would be happy,” he said.

“I scored 94.75 percent in my class 12 exams but I don't think I will be able to get admission into the B.Com honours course. Now, I am thinking of changing my course,” added Ishab Gupta, another student.

The high cut-offs have made it difficult for students to get admission into their desired courses. The colleges also have additional eligibility criteria, which has made admissions tougher.

"I scored 80 percent in class 12 and was eligible for a Political Science honours programme but because of the additional eligibility criteria, five percent will be deducted and I am no longer eligible," Lalit Deshwal said.
"Due to the extra eligibility criteria of the college, I have failed to get admission in the political science honours course,” added Rajshri.

The students, who have otherwise qualified for the cut-off, can take admission up to July 7 between 9 am to 1 pm.
Delhi University is one of the most prestigious universities in the country, admitting over 54,000 students in its undergraduate programme.
