Over 23,700 students have been admitted to the Delhi University after the first cut-off list, with experts predicting that there will be a marginal decrease in the cut-offs in the second list.
According to varsity authorities, 23,780 admissions took place till Tuesday. Experts said that this year, the colleges have over-admitted students and will tread a cautious path in the second cut-off list
Principals also said there will be a marginal decline in cut-offs for courses since they do not want to over-admit.
According to Dr Kalpana Bhakuni, the principal of Kamala Nehru College, the second list usually sees withdrawals.
“There are many students who withdraw their admission from one college and take admission to another college, if it is of their choice or the course is of their preference,” she said.
She said the colleges would be more watchful in the second cut-off list and the decline in the cut-offs for courses where seats are still left would see a marginal decline of 0.25 to 0.5 per cent while the slide might be in the range of 1.25 to 1.5 per cent for Hindi and Sanskrit, since there have been very few admissions.
