St Stephen`s College that had declared its cut-off lists on June 17, will now have to redo the lists.
As expected B Tech courses and Bachelor in Management Studies, which have been scrapped after the FYUP was rolled back, did not feature in the cut-off lists.
According to DU guidelines, students who have registered for the current academic year will be eligible for admission to all courses wherever they meet the criteria.
Giving another chance to those students who had missed the deadline to fill application forms, the varsity has allowed them to take admission by filling the university registration form along with the college admission form.
Under pressure from UGC to act on its directive, DU on Saturday scrapped FYUP and reverted to the previous 3-year structure.
A week behind schedule due to the row over controversial FYUP, admissions to DU`s academic session 2014-15 will begin from tomorrow giving respite to over 2.7 lakh students who had earlier applied for admission to DU under the now scrapped FYUP to more than 54,000 seats in 64 colleges of the varsity. The admissions were earlier scheduled to take place on June 24.
As per reports, the cut-off percents are high in the first list due to number of honours seats being reduced compared to last year because of the switch back to 3-year courses and the other reason is since the colleges have little idea about demand for particular courses since candidates had applied for FYUP courses.
