The first cutoff list for DU Admission was released on June 23, 2017. As per the reports, almost ¾ seats are expected to remain vacant after the conclusion of round 1 admission. The DU Second Cutoff List is due to be released on July 01, 2017, and looking at the scenario a dip in the cutoff is predictable.
Various newspapers are claiming that the decline in the cutoff will be of almost 3%, which is quite high for DU Admissions. As per the DU schedule, a total of 6 rounds of admission will be held and if the seats will not fill at a much rapid rate the wide dwindle might be seen.
One of the many causes of such low number of filled seats can be because of the technical glitch in the admission process, since the inception. The first round admission has ended but the students and parents are still perplexed about n number of things. The recent major issue which troubles the mind is that after the admission, the courses displayed in the dashboard is showing courses varied from the opted one. The students are now confused if they should make the final payment or not.
For the morning college, total 12,600 admissions have been approved but only 9,600 candidates have completed the payment procedure. The number approved by candidates for evening course is even bigger, 13,000, but the number of registered candidates is almost the same. The technical glitch is keeping the students from making the final payment but the payment facility will end on Thursday, 12:00 noon.
As far as DU admission is concerned, out of 752, almost 650 seats have been filled. In Kirori Mal College, 450 admissions are confirmed but in Sri Venkateswara, approximately 760 seats are left. Lady Shri Ram College of Commerce, one of the best college, will most probably close the admission and if it did participate in the second round of admission then the cutoff is expected to be the same as before, i.e. 97.75.
In off-campus colleges like Kamala Nehru and Gargi College 50% seats have been filled. On the other hand, in Zakir Hussain College only 139 confirmed admissions have been reported against the total of 1150 seats.
In few colleges, like Kalindi and Daulat Ram, the matter got out of hand when the lack of organisation at the admission counter turned into a nightmare. But the colleges with low turn up rate were able to successfully conclude the admission procedure.
The aspirants must stay hopeful. It has always been experienced that in the second round of counselling the cutoff dips and even the number of withdrawal is also reasonable.
