The Delhi University will release its first cut-off list for undergraduate courses today. The scores are expected to soar higher this year from the last time as several students have scored more than 95 per cent in the CBSE Class 12 board examinations. Also, some colleges have quoted that they could even keep the cut-offs at 100 per cent too in order to avoid huge inflow of applications on the limited number of seats.
“We had decided on our cut-offs already but we were wondering to have a reconsideration of the cut off list after seeing the higher number of students having scored above 95 per cent. Also, there are many students who have scored cent per cent marks and we might have to keep the cut-offs at 100 per cent to avoid huge inflow of students,” said Vibha Chauhan, principal of Kirori Mal College, Delhi University.
Arya bhatta College another renowned college of Delhi University has released its tentative cut-off list on Thursday already with B.A (Hons) psychology having the highest cut-off among all courses at whopping 98.5 per cent.
A principal of an off-campus college, on the condition of anonymity, said some courses might see a one or two per cent increase from last year and some might even see a six per cent rise from the last time because students have secured very high marks.
