Two Delhi University Colleges Publish Special Cut Lists
Deen Dayal Upadhyaya College and Aryabhatta College at the University of Delhi on Monday released their special selection lists for applicants who could not be admitted to the three lists released earlier.
The university has so far published three selection lists with more than 60,000 students who have obtained admission.
The consolidated special list, which will be released later today, is only for applicants who were unable to apply under all three lists for various reasons. Students do not have the option to cancel their admission and enroll in a course or college of their choice under this list, which was offered to them in the second and third lists.
The special cut is the last cut declared for a program.
Deen Dayal Upadhyaya College set the thresholds for Bachelor of Commerce (with Distinction) at 98.25%, Bachelor of Chemistry (with Distinction) at 96.33%, Bachelor (with Distinction) in Computer Science, Mathematics (with distinction) and physics (with distinction) at 97%. respectively and BSc in Physical Sciences with Computer Science at 95 percent.
Aryabhatta College maintained the minimum marks required for BA (Honors) in Economics at 97%, BA (Honors) in Hindi at 84%, BA (Honors) in Psychology at 97.75%, BCom at 96.75%, the BCom (with distinction) at 97 percent while the thresholds for the bachelor’s degree in computer science (with distinction) are 96.5 percent, the combination of bachelor’s programs in economics and political science is 95.75 percent and the combination of economics and history bachelor’s programs is 95 percent.
Colleges impose special thresholds in courses where more than two places are vacant, according to a university official, because they don’t want to risk excessive admissions.
In cases where there are only a few places left in a course, colleges prefer to free up the threshold for those places in the fourth or fifth list. If there is an excessive number of admissions in the unreserved category, the seats in the reserved categories should be increased by that proportion, the official said.
In a related development, the university postponed the admissions process for the neighborhood quota.
In an email sent last week, the University of Delhi requested a list of college students who applied under the hall’s quota.
Children of teaching and non-teaching staff working at the university can be admitted to colleges affiliated with the university as part of the service quota.
