Delhi University admissions 2016 has almost come to an end with the fifth cut-off list being the last one. However, there are a few vacant seats at various colleges of the Delhi University. After the final cut-off list, the colleges were asked to fill up vacant seats by making a merit list.
According the DU admission rules, students who have already taken admissions in Delhi University colleges can re-apply at the institutions that have vacant seats without withdrawing the previous admission.
This year being the firsts of many for the Delhi University admissions, the university has released only cut-offs lists unlike the 10 cut-offs in the previous years.
"This is certainly going to bring back the long process of admission withdrawals. Off-campus colleges will be the worst hit as students with 90% and above marks would like to study at a North Campus college," said a principal of a North Campus college.
The admissions process for the left-over vacant seats under the merit list began yesterday, July 25, 2016.
Earlier, students who had taken admission in colleges realised they could not re-apply until the earlier admission rule.
Parents and students met the Dean Students Welfare (DSW) and objected to the rule. The university admission committee called for an emergency meeting and took a decision that students should be allowed to apply without withdrawing admission.
