New Delhi: While students flock in huge numbers for admission to the coveted colleges of Delhi University following the release of the second cut-off list, college authorities say that it is highly unlikely that they would come out with a third cut-off list.

The seats in the general category of most colleges in North Campus have been filled. However, it is being observed that many students are withdrawing their name from the colleges to seek admission in another college of their choice.

Ramjas College on Tuesday admitted 70 students. The Head of Admissions Committee, Professor Rajrani Goel said that Physics and Chemistry were the most sought-after subjects.

Dr Shashi Tyagi, Principal of Gargi College said that all the seats for the general category were filled though few in the reserved category remain vacant. She also added that a third cut-off was most unlikely.

Dr. Jai Prakash, Principal of Bhaskaracharya College of Applied Sciences said that the ratio of students admitted was higher than the number of seats offered, as 250 students were admitted where as the number of seats offered were 200. Twenty-five students were given admission in Computer Science which had only 23 seats to offer. With still one day remaining for the admission process to end, the likelihood of colleges coming out with a third cut-off is fast diminishing.

Dr. Vijay Kumar Sharma, Principal of Ram Lal Anand College said that the number of student applicants have risen after the second cut-off. They have given admission to 1336 students, whereas the number of seats offered was only 608.

Seats in a few courses and the reserved section are still vacant. However, a decision on bringing out a third cut-off will be taken after sensing the situation on Wednesday.

Withdrawal of admission:

After securing a seat in DU following the first cut-off, students are now withdrawing their names from the admission list to seek admission in a college and course of their choice. On the second day following the release of the second cut-off list, 50 students have withdrawn their names from Gargi College, 40 from IP College for women and 35 from Ramjas.
