The third merit list for admission to Undergraduate (UG) programmes of the University of Mumbai (MU) has been declared on Monday. Degree colleges state they have few vacant seats left as the third list is the last merit round.
The cut-offs have dipped in the third merit list, said degree colleges. Neha Jagtiani, in-charge principal of RD National College, Bandra said, "The cut-offs have reduced for courses such as Bachelor of Arts (BA), Management Studies (BMS) and Media. The cut-offs have reduced as many students are opting for different courses based on choice of subjects."
The principal of a South Mumbai college said, "The cut-offs have reduced because students are shifting courses. But at the same time, seats are getting filled fast wherein very few seats are left. Students need to complete the admission process and confirm seats."
