DU cut off, admission 2018: Today i.e June 27 is the last day for admissions to Delhi University colleges under the second cut-off list. While over 5,000 students took admission in various colleges under the Delhi University yesterday, two days after the second cut-off lists were released, majority of seats were lying vacant at the less glamourous off-campus colleges. Colleges such Aditi Mahavidyalaya, Swami Shraddhanand College, Lakshmi Bai College and Janaki Devi Memorial College saw minimal number of admissions so far.
“We have had about 126 admissions so far, and we have roughly 800 seats. Our college is situated on the outskirts of Delhi, so that can be one reason we haven’t seen many students coming. Compared to previous years, we’re seeing fewer admissions,” principal of Aditi Mahavidyalaya, located in Bawana, Mamata Sharma said. Acting principal of Swami Shraddhanand College, P V Khatri, said, “Out of more than 1,000 seats, only 200 have been filled up. Most seats in our science courses have been filled up, but majority of seats in BA Programme and B.Com Programme are still vacant. We expect maximum admissions to take place after the third cut-off list is released.” While Lakshmi Bai College saw around 350 admissions for over 1000 seats, 350 of 990 seats have been filled at Janaki Devi Memorial College.
