TED NewsDesk, New Delhi: The Coronavirus outbreak has not deterred those who seek knowledge as Delhi University sees an undergraduate admission intake of 67,000 students this academic year. According to a senior employee at the university, “A total of 67,781 students have taken admissions so far under the DU fifth cut-off lists. Out of these, 24,261 admissions have been done under the DU 5th cut-off 2020 list which was announced on Saturday.”
The total possible intake of DU is 70,000 students this year for various undergraduate courses across the University colleges. In the current academic session, the number of seats has been increased from last year’s 66,263 to 69,554 by adding 3,201 extra seats. This will provide support to a lot of students who would have had to go to other universities otherwise.
Especially the fifth cut- off list, which came out on Saturday proved to be a great boon for the students whose names did not appear on the previous lists. Lady Sri Ram College still has some empty seats for courses like English (98%), Political Science (98.75%), Psychology (99%) and Sociology (97.75%). Additionally, Sri Ram College of Commerce has seats empty for the BCom programme at 98.12%.
These two, which come under the category of major college in the University, always present a certain level of difficulty during the admission process due to the significant number of people who apply for these colleges. The availability of seats in these colleges gives the students g good opportunity to study there.
