DU 8th cut-off 2019: The University of Delhi (DU) is likely to have another drive for its students before the final cut-off announcement for the year 2019- the 8th DU UG admissions list.

Rajeev Gupta, the dean of student affairs and head of admissions committee informed at a press release that only limited seats are left across colleges, most of which are under ST category. Thus it is yet to decide on way to fill the sets further.

Gupta, also said that to have a final call the admissions committee members will hold a meeting on August 20 (Today) and the schedule for the final cutoffs is likely to be released by Wednesday, August 21.

The meeting was delayed as it was initially planned to be held last week and the schedule for admissions was to be disclosed by August 13 but most of the seats including those under EWS quota were filled the university has decided to plan another meeting.

Earlier, this year DU held a special drive ahead of the 6th cut-off under which students were allowed to change their category for admissions if applicable.

The officials are yet to collate data on how many students changed their category under the drive. The core focus was to fill the minority seats under Sikh quota at that time.

Previous year, DU has released 10 cut-off lists. This year despite the additional seats under the Economically Weaker Section (EWS) quota, the University has registered ‘over admissions’.

3.67 lakh applications were received for 64000 seats undergraduate in DU. Out of which 2.58 lakh applications were paid applications. In the EWS category for 6000 seats 9091 students had applied.
