Going by the previous years’ admission criteria, the top DU colleges post cut offs of more than 95 per cent for popular courses
New Delhi: With the CBSE decalring Class 12 results on Sunday as per the moderation policy, the DU cut-offs are likely to remain same as last year. Witnessing the percentages going as high as 99.6 per cent, there will again be a cut throat competition for popular courses at Delhi University colleges.
Going by the previous years’ admission criteria, the top DU colleges post cut offs of more than 95 per cent for popular courses. Cut-offs are computed based on the applicants’ score in the ‘best of four’ subjects. Though high cut-offs can be intimidating, DU has different options for all levels of scorers.
Those with really high scores stand a good chance of making it to SRCC, St. Stephens, LSR or KMC in their preferred courses. Last year, the cut-off in SRCC for Economics (H) was 98.25 per cent. However, not only experts but also the varsity officials suggest that opting for a good course is more important than going for a well-known college.
Those who scored between 80 and 90 per cent have an option to wait for subsequent cut-off lists following which they can opt for B.Com or general science courses, the cutoffs of which are lower than honours courses. Those who have scored between 60 to 75 per cent can either opt for courses having an entrance exam such as management studies and foreign languages or can apply for courses that look accessible.
