New Delhi: Delhi University will announce the fist cut-off list tomorrow, i.e. on June 27, 2013. With the release of the combined cut-off list, the admissions for the first batch of the Four-Year Undergraduate Programme (FYUP) in the DU colleges will begin. The window period of admission in each of the five cutoff lists is three days inclusive of the day on which the list is issued.
This time, the students must study the cut-off list watchfully, as they had no choice of selecting colleges at the time of registration this year. Students are allowed to only decide on the course during registration and are eligible for admission in all colleges it is being offered in case they complete the cut-off criterion. The university has decided to issue separate cut-off list for OBC, SC, ST and persons with disability candidates.
As per university information, after releasing of the cut-off list, the candidates are advised to select colleges they are eligible for and visit these with relevant documents as early as possible as the admission period is for three days in each list. Once admission closes in a particular list, the candidates will not be able to take admission based on that list but only based on following cutoffs.
Furthermore, the candidates who are seeking admissions under ECA / sports quota, but have also filled the OMR forms can take admission in general category if they make the cut-off. Although cutoffs are likely to come down in following lists, the students should book a seat in whichever college they are eligible for. If a student qualifies in the second or following list in the college of their preference, one can always cancel their admission and get the documents and original certificates back the same day. Several colleges return the originals after verification on the day of admission.
According to the college sources, this year, the university has launched one Management course at Undergraduate level, and six B Tech Degrees including B Tech in Psychological Science, Computer Science, Electronics, Food Technology, Instrumentation and Polymer Science. Even if the number of seats in many courses has increased considerably owing to seat re-appropriation as B Sc, BA and B Com courses have been abolished, it is not likely to bring down the cutoff.
