University of Delhi (DU) is all set to release the second cut-off list today dated October 09, 2021, for UG Admission 2021-22. The second cut-off list for a variety of courses will be published on individual college websites first. Later on, it will be made available on DU’s official website du.ac.in. More importantly, after the release of the cut-off list, students will be able to upgrade their admission or change their college options. This process will not take place in on-campus mode like it did in 2020 but through online mode. The reason, of course, is the COVID-19 pandemic. Here’s an overview of what to expect from the second cut-off list.
As per reports, DU 2021 second cut-off list is expected to be closer to the first one with minor changes. There are two reasons for this negligible change – 1. This year, a record-breaking 4,38,696 candidates have registered for DU Admission 2021 and, 2. More than 60,000 students have scored 95% or above in the CBSE Class 12 board exams. Hence, the competition is going to be tough in seeking admission against the second cut-off list. While the first cut-off list had 8 colleges with 100% cut-offs, a similar number of colleges are expected to have the cent per cent figure in the second round.
Last year, approximately 74% of seats had been filled after the release of the second cut-off list. More than 65,000 candidates had applied for admission to various colleges against the second cut-off marks. With 3/4th of the seats occupied, the remaining rounds had barely any seats left to cater to the remaining students. By the end of all rounds, more than 70,000 seats in various fields were filled.
A similar situation and level of competition are expected to occur this year. As of now, the university offers 69,554 across 61 affiliated colleges. With more than 4.3 lakh students applying for admissions, the number of seats is bound to cross the 70,000 mark. More than 70% of seats are likely to fill up by the end of this round. Candidates are instructed to keep an eye out for cut-off marks on the official website. After getting a clear sense of where they can seek admission, candidates can either upgrade or change their list of institutes through the online mode.
After the announcement of DU 2021 second cut-off list, the admission process for various courses will begin thereafter, on October 11, 2021. This process will end with each college sending their approval to the enlisted students. A third cut-off list is expected to release on October 16, 2021. Thereafter, the same procedures for admission will follow suit.
