Delhi University Admissions: First Cut-Off List Out

With all eyes on the Delhi University admissions portal, Lakhs of students awaited the first cut off list. But who knew that there would be a slight change in plans! The cut-off list that was supposed to be released on Friday, June 28 ended up being out at late night Thursday, June 27. What could have been the rationale of being before time, for a change? Rajeev Gupta, head admissions committee, DU told they are trying to publish the DU cut-off early to allow more time to students. This has been by far the most delayed admission process as the application forms were released late.

Just like every year, most of the applications were registered from the Central Board of Secondary Education students. As many as 2.05 lakh students applied form CBSE followed by 8,755 applications by UP Board and 8,398 applications by the Council for the Indian School Certification Examination (CISCE). Since the number of students clearing CBSE 12 with 95% marks has increased from last year, the DU cut off too has increased, as expected.

Coming to the main aspect of the cut-off’s, the numbers. In this cut-off, Hindu College has raised the bar for the aspirants seeking admission in B.A. Political Science (H) with 99% cut-off for the aspirants. Hindu is not the only college to make it tough for the aspirants to seek admission. B.A Psychology (Honours) was in high demand at Jesus and Mary College and the cut-off reached a staggering 99% for the aspirants.

 For the Psychology programme, the cut-off has soared as high as 98.75 per cent in Lady Shri Ram College for Women. Explaining the high cut-off for Political Science at Hindu College, principal Anju Shrivastava in an interview to Indian Express said, “Our past experience is that there is usually over-admission in the course. The sanctioned strength from the general category is only 19, but last year we had 80 admissions in just the general category. It’s in demand, so it’s natural that we had to keep the cut-off high,”.

In the science stream, the highest cut-off is for Physics (Hons) at Hindu College — 98.33 per cent, as compared to 98 per cent last year. The Hindu College has also recorded the highest cut -off for Mathematics and Statistics, at 97.75 per cent at Hindu College. This is followed by 97 per cent at SGTB Khalsa College, Gargi College, Ramjas College and KMC. Sri Ram College of Commerce, the dream college for commerce aspirants declared its highest cut off at 98.75 per cent — an increase of 0.25 per cent from last year for admission to Economics (Hons). The cut off for the same course in Hansraj College is 98.50%.

 Another sought after course is B.A Journalism. The highest cut-off for the Journalism course is 98.5 per cent at Delhi College of Arts and Commerce, same as last year. However, the lowest cut-off for the course has risen from 92 per cent to 94 per cent at Bharati College.

The second cut-off list is to be out on the 4th of July, third on July 9, fourth on July 15 and fifth on July 20. There is hardly any expectation for a significant dip in cut-offs and a rise in relief of DU aspirants. But till then all one can do is hope and work towards finding ways to achieve things that are important and prioritize admission goals and choices.
