Third list brings some hope for DU admission seekers
New Delhi, Jul 5 (UNI) The third cut off list of the Delhi University, which has recorded a dip in science courses by two to three per cent, has brough a glimmer of hope to students wanting to opt for the stream.
With the admission process in the Delhi University almost closing in most of the colleges, students are trying to secure a seat in the science stream.
However, students wanting to get into Arts or Commerce streams were once again disappointed as most colleges have closed admission.
''Finally I have a chance to get into the University... The first and the second list only brought disappointment for me. I have scored 83 per cent,'' said Manisha Kapoor, who is seeking admission in Physics (Honours) course at Deen Dayal Upadhyaya college.
''My hard work will not go waste now... and I am happy that I am getting a seat in the course I wanted,'' she added.
For Physics (Honours), the cut off at Acharya Narendra Dev College is 70 per cent, at ARSD it is 79 per cent, at Deen Dayal Upadhyaya its 73 per cent, at Hindu College it is 88.66 and Dyal Singh 72 per cent. In Sri Venkateswara, the course is available at 85.33 per cent.
The cut off for Chemistry (Honours) at Dyal Singh and Deshbandhu is 68 per cent. At Hindu College, the required marks for the course are 82 per cent and at Kirori Mal it is 79-81.32 per cent.
But for scores of students, who had not acheieved more than 85 pe cent marks and wanted admission in Arts or commerce, even the third list did not bring any hope.
''I was hopeful that I will at least get into an arts course of some college.... but it was not to be. I have socred 70 per cent,'' said a dejected Pawan Mehra.
''I have no idea what else can I do,'' he added.
While most colleges have closed admissions for B Com (Hon), the cut off for the course at Atma Ram Sanatan Dharam (ARSD) is 83.5 per cent.
At Bagini Nivedita College, it is 63 per cent, Bharti College has 76-78 per cent and B R Ambedkar College, it is 81.5 per cent.
At Delhi College of Arts and Commerce, the required marks are 85-90 per cent and Dyal Singh it is 81-86 per cent. At Kirori Mal College, B Com seats are available at 89.75-93.75 per cent.
For Economics (Hon), the cut off at College of Vocational Studies is 83-88 per cent and at Deshbandhu it is 79 per cent. At Ramjas College, Economic (Honours) is available at 86-91 per cent.
Some seats are still open for English (Honours) course at Daulat Ram College at 81-86.9 per cent, which is a drop of two per cent.
At Delhi College of Arts and Commerce it is 77-80 per cent and at Deshbandhu College it is 71 per cent. Sri Venkateswara College is also offering some seats in English (Honours) at 81.75-89 per cent.
At Gargi College, the BA programme is available at 75.5-77 per cent, at Hindu College at 84 per cent and at Hans Raj College at 75 per cent.
