Rajasthan University announces first cut-off list
Rajasthan University declared its first cut-off list for - Rajasthan, Commerce, Maharaja's and Maharani's Colleges on Tuesday, June 27, 2012 As expected, there has been an increase of 2% to 4% in the cut offs. Apart from this, the 12% increase in the number of applicants has made the competition stiffer.
Maharani's college has the highest cut off of 93.6% for BCom course. Officials revealed that the cut off has reached an all time high and is the highest among all college cut offs in the state. They added that the cut off is probably even higher than that of many colleges of the Delhi University.
Similarly, the cutoff for the BSc pass course is 90%, followed by the 80% cutoff for general category students applying for the BA pass course. Maharani's college has declared the cutoffs for the first 80% of all available seats. The cut off for the remaining seats will be declared in the next two lists, later this week. The college had received 12,000 applications from various places including Uttar Pradesh, Haryana, Delhi and Punjab. The college has 2,300 seats.
Commerce College witnessed a 2% dip in the cut off, with the first cutoff announced being 86.2%, against last year's 88.31%. The cut off for SC students is 70%, while ST students have a cut off of 68%. As per the college sources, the decrease is due to the average Results of the Board of Secondary Education Rajasthan.
The college received about 6,000 applications for the 960 seats available. College officials further revealed that there has been an increase in the number of applications from Delhi, presumably because of the high cut offs at Delhi Colleges. However, the decline in cut offs has been attributed to students opting for private colleges and universities. The second and third cutoff lists will be released on June 29 and June 30, 2012. A drop of 3% to 5% can be expected in the next two cutoffs.
Officials from the commerce college disclosed that the final list was prepared using software and messages have been sent to students selected for the first list. They added that the SMS facility will help students to complete formalities.
Maharaja’s college announced the cut offs for various courses. While the general category cut off for Biology stood at 72.83%, the cut off for math has been set at 84.46%. The college received 5,000 applications for the 1,200 seats available for various programs. Officials from the college expressed that the increasing demand for engineering seats has affected the number of students applying for BSc courses. The college has a total of 640 seats for its BSc programs in Math and Biology.
Rajasthan College witnessed an increase in the cutoff for its BA pass course, which is now set at 78.20% for general category students. The college is yet to announce the cut off for the honours programs.
Demand for traditional courses increases
After a gap of almost five years, there has been an increase in the demand for humanities and math courses at Government College. While the cut off for Math stands at 72%, the cut off for Humanities courses is 63.8%. As per sources there has been an increase following the announcement of the sixth pay commission.
Students applying to the college expressed that they are expecting a decrease in the cut offs in the next two lists.
As per the college sources, almost 30% of the applicants have paid their fees unlike previous years when many seats would go vacant. They added that the trend can be attributed to an increased demand for government jobs over professional courses such as MBA.
Last year, the government college in Ajmer received only 10 applications for available 67 seats for honours programs. There has been an increase in the number of girls applying for programs at the college.
