DU has announced that it will come out its eighth, ninth and tenth cut-off lists for candidates seeking admission in UG courses for 2015.
Delhi University (DU) has announced the eighth cut-off list for admission to its undergraduate programmes for the academic session 2015-16.
At the time of the announcement of the admission schedule, the varsity had maintained that it will release a maximum of seven cut-off lists, according to which the admission process had ended on July 27.
However, DU has decided to announce three more lists due to a considerable number of seats lying vacant in majority of the colleges.
"In continuation of the previous notification and as per data provided by the colleges, few seats for different categories are still vacant in some of the colleges. Therefore, it has been decided that the colleges shall fill these vacant seats," Deputy Registrar (Academics), Rohan Rai said in a statement.
The university has decided to come out with its eighth, ninth and a tenth cut-off list, which means the admissions will now close on August 12, 2015.

"The colleges have been asked to send data of vacant seats course-wise and category wise along with cut-offs. We have also sent instructions to colleges on details to be uploaded, which include OMR numbers, Class XII aggregate in best-of-four subjects, courses in which candidates are enrolled and categories," Rai added.
While the steep cut-offs for admission to undergraduate programmes in DU has caused widespread disappointment amongst students, the soaring of the eligibility bar for some of them to beyond the perfect 100% mark has been termed "absurd" and "unbelievable".
With such high cut-offs and marginal drops in further lists, there have been less takers for admissions resulting in vacancy of seats.
Usually, the admissions in DU colleges close by fourth list every year and a further list is announced to accommodate students on seats vacated due to withdrawals.
