“There is only a slight decrease in the second list of excluded courses for other courses. For example, the Bachelor of Political Science was available at 98.50% on the first cut-off list, it is now available at 98.25% on the second cut-off list, ”says Jha. He adds, surprisingly, this year’s reserved categories filled up faster than the unreserved categories. Miranda House, which set a threshold of 99.75% and 98.33% for the unconditional category in political science and physics, has closed admissions in these two subjects, confirms Bijailakshmi Nanda, director of Miranda House.
Manoj Sinha, director of Aryabhatta College, also confirms a decrease in the second threshold of only 0.25-2%. “We have accepted more students than our authorized strength in political science, bachelor’s program (a combination of history and political science) and the BCom program,” says Sinha.
Prakash Kumar Patel, assistant professor of political science at Gyal Singh College, says there is no second limit for political science, history, geography, Hindi and English.
“Despite a 98% reduction in the Political Science (H) program, the department is facing excess enrollment. A total of 105 students were admitted against the allowed number of 77, ”says Patel. He emphasizes that the success of Satyam Gandhi, an AIR 10 graduate in the UPSC Civil Services 2020 exam and a political science graduate from Gyal Singh College, has attracted more students to his college.
Patel also confirms that, of the total enrolled students, 75% are girls. Regarding why there are more girls, Patel explains that there is a 1% allowance for them, which is helpful and helps them secure admission.
Bharti College, which had a 93% cutoff in English (H), is also facing an enrollment problem. The college admitted 350 students against an authorized 65 seats.
