Students looking forward to studying at Delhi University (DU) have a choice to make. They can either take admission in colleges where they meet the cut-off or wait for the next list.

However, DU officials say students should take admission in the college where they make the cut. They can try their luck at the college of their choice later.

“Aspirants should not miss out on a seat as it might be difficult to grab one later. I would suggest that aspirants take admission in whichever college they meet the cut-off. Aspirants can always change colleges after the second cut-off list is announced. According to me, it is better if aspirants prefer courses over colleges,” said Amrita Bajaj, Deputy Dean (Students’ Welfare), DU.

‘Can shift later’

“Take admission in a course of your choice. You can always shift to another college when the second or third cut-offs are announced,” said G.K. Jha, Principal of Atma Ram Sanatan Dharma (ARSD) College. The difference between the cut-offs in subsequent lists, however, is generally not much. Last year, the first cut-off for B.A (Hons.) English at Lady Shri Ram (LSR) College was 98.25%, while admissions closed at 96.25%.

‘Be on the safe side’

At Miranda House, admissions for B.A. (Hons.) Economics opened at 97.75% and closed at 96%. At Shri Ram College of Commerce (SRCC), admissions for B.A. (Hons.) Economics opened at 98.25% and closed at 97.25%.

Students seem to agree with the experts when it comes to not taking the risk of waiting for subsequent cut-off lists. “It is better to be on the safe side and take admission in a college where you make it in the first cut-off. Aspirants can always shift once the other cut-off lists are announced. It is better to have a back-up option,” said Sreeja Dutta, a third-year student at Ramjas College.

“I didn’t know that I could switch colleges when I was seeking admission to DU. So, even if one settles for a college one doesn’t want, they can always shift once the other cut-off lists are out,” said Pragya Singh, a B.A. (Hons.) psychology student at Gargi College.
