Colleges fill up seats, say no to more lists
Shri Ram College of Commerce’s Economics (Hons) had 59 admissions to its 62 seats available under the second list by Friday.
“We intend to admit 75 students to the course when the list closes, preparing for about 15 withdrawals. OBC seats are still vacant in the course,” said Rajeev Kumar, assistant professor at Economics department and in charge of admissions to the course.
At Hindu, admissions went beyond capacity for BCom and Economics (Hons) courses — 840 students were admitted for 752 seats.
“Most courses — except Sanskrit (Hons), Hindi (Hons) and maybe Philosophy (Hons) and Physics (Hons) — will close admissions with the second list. For OBC students, admissions might close in Maths (Hons) and Physics (Hons). We will have a clear picture only on Monday, “ said Dr Pradyumn Kumar, acting principal of Hindu College.
However, off campus colleges like Sri Venkateswara might bring out a third list. Although courses like Mathematics (Hons) in the college closed in the first list with 241 students being admitted against a capacity of 90, courses like Political Science (Hons), Sociology (Hons) and BCom (Hons) were open in the second list.
“There will be a third list for most of the courses, including Economics (Hons) and BCom (Hons). This is because we have been very cautious with the dip in second cut-off list,” said Dr V C S Rao, spokesperson for the college.
