If you have pinned your hopes on the second cutoff list, be prepared to settle for a less fancied college. By Wednesday, 27th June, 2012, evening, Shri Ram College of Commerce (SRCC) had filled up all its B.Com (H) seats and had only nine B.A (H) economics seats remaining. General category admissions will close on Thursday, 28th June, 2012. A second list for general category is unlikely at SRCC although we may bring down the cutoff for OBC category in the next list, said principal PC Jain. Admissions to B.Com (H) will close with the second cutoff list on Friday, 29th June, 2012 at SGTB Khalsa, Gargi, Moti Lal Nehru, Ram Lal Anand and Dayal Singh colleges, among others.
However, sought-after colleges like Hindu, Kirori Mal and Sri Venkateswara, which didn’t get many applicants to B.Com (H) due to high cutoffs, will make themselves available to admission seekers. Hindu College had 29 seats left in B.Com (H) on Wednesday, 27th June, 2012 while KMC is yet to admit any student in the course. Sri Venkateswara managed to admit just 13 students. SGTB is likely to keep admission open for honours courses in mathematics, physics and chemistry. Last year, we had a bad experience admitting students beyond capacity, expecting some to withdraw. Although we are keeping the science courses open, the drop will be marginal, said SGTB Khalsa principal Jaswinder Singh. Aspirants will have to plan their strategy as many courses across colleges are likely to be closed for admission with the second cutoff list.
Gargi College is likely to close admissions to B.Com (H), science and applied science courses, while SGTB Khalsa College will also close admissions to B.A (H) in economics. Hindu College may close admissions to B.Sc (H) in zoology, botany, sociology, and KMC to BA programme and geography (H). Miranda House, which has filled 65% of its general seats, is likely to close admissions for geography (H) and sociology (H). Colleges like Kamla Nehru, Deen Dayal Upadhyaya, Ram Lal Anand and Kirori Mal are likely to keep admissions open for most of the courses on offer. Miranda House may keep admissions open to English, economics, philosophy, history and B.A programme, while Sri Venkateswara may bring down the cutoff by a percentage point for science courses.
