Dr Jaswinder Singh, the principal of Sri Guru Tegh Bahadur Khalsa College, said nearly 440 seats out of 820 have been filled up. “We have 10 students who have applied to the BCom programme. The cut-offs are likely to see a one per cent decline in the third list,” he said.
At Hindu College, 1,858 students have secured their admission to date.
“The third cut-off list is likely to see a decline of up to one per cent for courses. We have already filled up the unreserved seats for B.Com(Honours) while OBC is almost filled up.
