"The number (of applications received) include the supernumerary seats as well, we do not know yet how many of them are still vacant.... But at this moment, it is very difficult to say whether there will be another list because of constant movement of students from one college or another," the official told IANS.
The primary reason for the still 'vacant' seats is not the lack of applicants, he said, but because of the movement of students, who leave for another college after securing admission in one, as they see a dip in the percentage with the issue of a new cut-off.
For example, if there is a dip of one per cent in a certain course in Zakir Hussain Morning College, a student from the college's evening adjunct may apply for the morning one, admission in which he may have missed out of due to that one per cent, the professor said.
The first cut-off was issued on June 20 and the classes in the DU started in July 20.
