DU admissions: Colleges release first cut-offs

DU admissions: Colleges release first cut-offs

There was a considerable drop in the cut-offs of most courses, including English (Honours), B Com (H) and Economics (H), from a year ago.

Last year Ramjas College (DU) made headlines because of its highest cut-off of 99.25% for its B.Com (Hons).

The cut-off will be on the basis of best of four subjects, according to Delhi University criteria.

Cut-offs for courses in Hindi and Sanskrit (Honours) hovered within an achievable 60-70 percent for most colleges. "I secured 97.5 per cent in Class XII and got an admission today in Hansraj college in BCom (Hons)" said Anuj. "So we decided it is better to give a reasonable first cutoff this year to reduce the burden on students".

Among colleges offering journalism course, LSR set the highest cut-off of 98 per cent, followed by Delhi College of Arts and Commerce (DCAC) with 97 per cent. Last year, it had set its cut-off at 98 per cent for B.Com (Honours) and 98.25 per cent for B.A. (Honours) Economics.

SRCC which released the cut-off first had bolted the cut-off a little bit higher at 97.75 per cent, for the Economics (Honours) and B.Com (Honours).

The students, who did make it to the colleges, expressed their surprise and joy at the reduced cut-offs at numerous DU colleges."The cut-offs in many colleges are lower than previous year, which is a good thing". While for B.Com (H), there is a dip of 0.25 percentage points from last year's 98 per cent, for Eco (H), the dip is of 0.50 percentage points from 98.25 per cent in 2016. "This year, we tried to set a very realistic cut-off, as last year we could not admit many students in the first cut-off list", said Ramjas Principal PC Tulsian. After such a huge first cut off list for session 2017-18, students seeking admission in DU will have to wait for the second cut-off list that is expected to be out on 1st July. The admission process under the first list will begin on June 24 and will continue till June 28. The timings for morning college will be 9:30 am to 1:30 pm and for evening college will be 4 pm to 7 pm.

The cut-off list for Humanities was slightly higher than Commerce and Science.
