Over 9,100 students have taken admissions to Delhi University (DU) till Saturday, according to the data shared by the varsity. The DU announced its first cut-off list for admission to undergraduate courses late Thursday night, with Hindu College pegging the highest score of 99 per cent for Political Science Honours -- a marginal increase over last year. Over 2,750 admissions were done on the first day of admissions on Friday, while the tally climbed to 9,196 on the second day.
Hindu College has seen around 750 admissions till now, while Lady Shri Ram and Miranda House have completed 800 admissions each approximately. According to the representatives of Miranda House and Hindu College, there may not be a second cut-off list for certain courses since the seats may get filled after the first round of admissions.
In Shri Ram College of Commerce (SRCC), of the 135 seats in BA (Honours) Economics, 130 have been filled, while 266 of the 552 seats have been filled up so far in BCom (Honours). Aurobindo College has had around 250 admissions for over 1,000 seats till now.
Meanwhile, at least 10 students from Maharashtra approached the Delhi University authorities on Saturday alleging that colleges were not accepting their certificates owing to some discrepancies in names. According to a varsity official, in caste certificates issued in Maharashtra the prefix 'Kumari' is added to the names of girls. The father's name is also added to their names.
For instance, if a girl's name is Nikita Kamble and her father's name is Suresh Kamble, her certificate will have her name as Kumari Nikita Suresh Kamble, he explained.
The students were directed to the grievance redressal cell by the colleges, the official said. He said 10-15 queries on the issue were received from students. The colleges were directed to enrol the students since Maharashtra follows this format.
