According to most experts, the second cut-off may see a dip of .25 to 3 percentage points. Still, the popular courses like BCom (Hons) and BA Economics (Hons) will see a marginal dip of .25 percentage points.

But, the cut-off may see bigger differences in other subjects.

In the first cutoff, SRCC announced  97.75% for BCom (Hons) and 98.50 % for BA Economics (Hons).

The Delhi University announced its first cut-off list on June 18 for merit-based undergraduate courses in the 2018-19 academic year, recording a drop in the minimum required marks as compared to the last year.

The highest cut-off this year is 98.75 per cent for BA (programme) in Lady Shri Ram College. Delhi College of Arts and Commerce has a cut-off of 98.50 per cent for BA (Hons) in Journalism, while LSR College has a cut-off of 98.25 per cent for BA (Hons) in Psychology.

On June 19, which was day one of admissions, the Delhi University's server came under severe pressure and the DigiLocker, a government-owned public cloud storage where certificates and documents were stored, was not integrated with the varsity portal.

The second day and the third day of the admissions went off smoothly, said officials.

The second cut-off is expected on Sunday and the officials are expecting a huge rush at that time.

According to the admission rules, applicants need to study the cut-off list, select courses and colleges on the university website, take printout of the admission slip and finally approach the respective colleges with the slip and required documents.

Yesterday was also the last day of ECA trials for almost 18,000 students.
