New Delhi: With Thursday being the last day for admissions under the first cut-off list in Delhi University (DU), long queues continued with some colleges even admitting more students than the seat capacity.
In Kirori Mal College in north campus students under general category faced problems in getting the admission forms. "My dad and I have been here since the last three days and my admission is not confirmed yet. I scored 97 per cent and I was the first one to submit my form yesterday (Wednesday), but I am still not sure of my admission," Rashika Sharma, a Kirori Mal College aspirant said.
Her father complained, "There is utter mismanagement and nonsense going on here. The management and the principal are relaxing in their office, ignorant about the problems students are facing due to the delay".
DU has very clear guidelines that no applicant can be denied admission in a college if he/she meets the cut-offs and seeks admission during the stipulated time.
Due to this some colleges have admitted more students than the seats available.
"In SRCC (Shri Ram College of Commerce), we have already admitted around 140 students for the 123 seats for economics honours, there is no scope of second cut-off for economics," PC Jain, principal, SRCC said. At Kamala Nehru College in south campus, admissions for sociology, english and journalism honours courses are full so there are no chances of a second list for these courses. Outstation students who have already faced a lot of problems due to the delay in admissions, complained of high cut-offs and having to wait longer. The second cut-off list will be released Friday.
