Seven colleges under Delhi University offer BA in Journalism and Kalindi College, Bharti College and Maharaja Agrasen College are some of them. These three colleges had about four students each enrolling while around 10 students got admission into Kamala Nehru College. The DU Admission is still underway as the varsity is yet to release a few more cut-off lists.
Rajiv Chopra, DCAC Principal, has said that with a successive cut-off list more enrollments are expected.
Dr Chanchal, Nodal officer for the Institute of Home Economics for Women said, "very few students have enrolled in the Institute for the course in the last two days."
The high cut off is said to be a factor which is keeping many aspirants away from the admissions and they might take enrollment after the other cut-off lists release. According to a DCAC official, the cut-off will decrease by 1 to 2 per cent in all these colleges in the second list.
The DU Admission 2019 has offered students to apply for multiple courses, which was not available until last year. There is a possibility that a large number of students who had applied for BA Journalism might have chosen the alternative courses.
