NEW DELHI: Despite the first list of qualifying marks for admission to Delhi University being higher than in the past years, more than half the seats available in the colleges were filled. But there’s still hope for aspirants with the second list, released on Saturday, showing a drop in the cutoffs ranging from 0.25 to 4 percentage points. Students will, however, have fewer seats in political science (H) to vie for, with 23 of the 45 colleges offering that course having filled the vacancies.

Admissions have been slow for the science courses. In the 24 colleges offering physics (H), only five colleges filled their seats under the first list, including for the OBC category in a few.
