While the varsity has done away with stream-wise cut-offs from this academic session, stream change students applying for BCom will attract a disadvantage of 2.5 per cent.
Hence, those with stream change clause applying for BCom honours at LSR and Ramjas, Political Science in Hindu, Kirori Mal and LSR and History in Hindu, too, needed 100 per cent and above marks for admission under the first cut off list, thanks to the 2.5 per cent penalty.
Despite, the high cut-offs and various penalty clauses the university officials had maintained that students need not panic as there are plenty of seats up for grab and the cut-offs have been kept high to avoid over-admissions.
According to DU guidelines, the eligible candidates who meet the requirements notified in the second cut-off list are required to complete the admission formalities till July 2. Third cut-off list will be announced on July 4.
