Now that the CBSE has announced Class 12th Results after much delay and even more confusion, all eyes are on Delhi University cut-offs, which will be released on June 20. The cut-offs are likely to see a rise this year, with the number of students scoring about 95 percent increasing by about 8 percent in 2017.
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.
DU College principals said there could be a rise of a bit percentage points in the cut-offs for most undergraduate courses, especially in on-campus colleges.
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.
Expected Cut-Offs for BCom (Hons) 2017:
Expected Cut-Offs for BA(H) Economics:
Expected Cut-Offs for BA(H) English:
Expected Cut-Offs for B.Sc(H) Computer Science:
The university has 56,000 seats in undergraduate courses this year, 2,000 more than last year.
Last year, the university had received about 2.5 lakh applications for 54,000 seats. The CBSE results have a direct impact on the DU cutoffs as at least 80% of the applications received by the university is from CBSE students and the rest are from various state boards.
