Several colleges across the university said that courses like BA (Prog), BA (H) political science and BCom were likely to close for the second cutoff list.

Manoj Khanna, principal of Ramjas College, said, “The students have time till 5 pm on Friday so there will be clarity on the total admissions after that.”
Sanjay Batra, admission convener at Sri Venkateswara College, said that the college had approved 450 applications and BA (Prog) was likely to close for the second cutoff list.
Officials at Kirori Mal College (KMC), which approved 438 applications, said that BA (Prog) and BCom were likely to close for both the general and reserved categories after the first list. Siddharth Lahon, admission convener at KMC, said, “For BA (H) English, most categories are likely to close. Even two or three combinations of BA (Prog) will close for the unreserved category.”
Deen Dayal Upadhyaya College, which saw nearly 700 admissions with 300 more left to pay the fees, is likely to close for BA (Prog) and BSc (H) zoology.
