Students all set for DU cut offs

Students are all geared up for the admission process to the Delhi University, which will begin today. However, they are all the more excited to know what this years' cut offs will be. Shri Ram College of Commerce had shocked many last year, when it decided to set a cut off of 100% for admissions to BCom (honours) for students from a non-commerce background.

Although the college has assured students that it will reduce the cut offs a little below the maximum marks, the move has left many wondering what is in store for them this year and whether it would prompt other colleges to raise their cut offs.  Officials from the university said that students can expect high cut offs this year for admission to commerce and science courses.

Sources from the university said that cutoffs would remain as high as last years' or increase considering the good performance of students in the CBSE class XII board examinations. They added that Kirori Mal College had a cut off of 97% for the B.Com course for commerce students, higher than the 96% SRCC had announced for the same course.

However, the college saw no admissions for the first three days after admissions were opened. Colleges are not letting up either, making sure they do not over admit students in the early rounds of admission.

Officials from the college said that students can have a look at last years' cut off to gauge where they stand this year.

Last years' admission process had no application forms, leaving colleges with no clue about how many applicants to expect. The colleges decided to raise the cut offs to avoid over admitting, but gradually reduced their cut offs to 95.5% and 95.25% before closing admissions. SRCC on the other hand had less than 25 seats left after the first day of admissions.

Various colleges offering science courses had raised their cutoffs to over 96% for BSc courses. Admissions to these courses finally closed at 94% and 95.33% at Hans Raj College and Hindu college, respectively.

Officials from Hindu College said that the high cut off was a precaution the college had taken owing to a sudden increase in applicants for science courses. They added that in the year before that, the college had to admit 150 students for the 62 available seats as the cut off was around 94%.

The increasing career options for science students have seen a growing number of students opting for these courses. Earlier, almost 50% of the students would drop out after admissions to join engineering course. However, this trend has been changing over the last couple of years.

Sources added that cut offs for science courses may go up by a maximum of 1%. They added that students can expect the cut offs to stay around the 94% mark. Officials from the university emphasized that students should opt for courses of their preference even if the college was not conveniently located.
