On the last day of admissions post the first cut off list, about 40 percent of the seats for the Under Graduate courses at Delhi University have been filled.
Hindu, Hansraj, Stephens, SRCC, Ramjas…. are few colleges every student seeks admission into for undergraduate courses.
The students who could not make the cut for the first list are now eagerly and anxiously waiting for the second list as their future hangs in balance.
While some faces beamed with joy and enthusiasm to get admissions to their chosen college, few faces were still gloomy and lacked smile as they could not clear the first cut off list.
India Ahead caught up with a few students on the campus and here is a ground report:
Some anxious and some upset faces marked the last day of admissions for first cut off. Vinayak from Chittorgarh in Rajasthan scored 97.4% and has applied for BA (Honours) English in politically charged Ramjas College. “I am still waiting for confirmation as they have taken more students than the designated seats for the course. Let’s see”, he said while having lunch at Ramjas Canteen with his father.
In between all the problems and clutter that he faced while taking admission at Hansraj, Brijendra is finally happy that he made it. “Initially, there was some problem related to different spellings on different documents of my father. But my brother helped me out in solving it” said Brijendra who hails from Ambedkar Nagar in Uttar Pradesh.
On being asked about the course applied, he said, “I scored 86.75% in 10+2 and as already decided; I applied for BA (Honours) Hindi. I am really happy!”
Walking out with his younger brother, Anant will also be part of the new batch at Hansraj. “I am from Jhunjhunu in Rajasthan. I scored 93.6% and my seat for Physical Science has been confirmed” he said while stressing about the smooth admission process. “Koi dikkat nahi hui”, he said.
Few kilometers away near SRCC’s gate number 1, stands Anuj Aggarwal at an eatery outlet. Seeking admission in B.Sc. Bio-Chemistry or Life Sciences, he said, “Particularly I have no choice for college like everyone may have. But my score is low and I am waiting. I hope I will make it in the second or third cut off.”
Refreshing his mind in this scorching heat at the Mother Dairy booth outside Arts Faculty, Ritik is dejected yet hopeful. “I just missed out of 0.25 percentile for BA (Honours) Political Science at Hindu College. But I am sure I’ll make it in the second list” said Ritik who hails from Haryana.
Delhi University has extended the admission process under first the cut-off for one day for Andhra Pradesh (AP) board students, after a request from the Andhra government on Sunday.
Students from Andhra Pradesh were denied admission due to confusion over the conversion of grades to marks.
Meanwhile, a total of 19,886 students have enrolled for 63,000 undergraduate seats, with the admission process for other boards ending on Monday.
Miranda House saw the maximum number of admissions, with 1155 seats already filled out of total 1165 seats, a leading national daily reported.
