When will the Cut-Offs release?
Students would have to wait until October to find out if they get an opportunity to study at Delhi University. On Tuesday, the DU admissions committee’s head announced that the first cut-off list will come out on October 1. The CBSE examinations will end on September 16th, and DU expects the results to release by October 1st.
“October 1 has been chosen as the first cutoff date as we want to accommodate all students who are appearing for improvement, compartment exams at the higher secondary level. Since CBSE is conducting physical exams, we wanted to give those students a chance too.” – Rajeev Gupta, chairman of the committee. He also said, “As UG candidates have mostly filled forms under parental supervision, such correction problem doesn’t seem to have been there.”
However, St Stephen’s College, a minority college affiliated with DU, announced its first list last week. There will be an interview round further for the applicants who qualified. However, the university hasn’t released any admissions timetable. With a 99.5 percent cut-off, economics (H) has the highest cut-off.
The cut-offs for 62 additional institutions, totaling approximately 70,000 seats are likely to stay high. “St Stephen’s College has already set a high bar, therefore the cut-offs will stay high for the first several lists,” a college principal stated.
Will the cut-offs be higher this year?
This year, more than 2 lakh people applied.
“We have no option but to retain the cut-offs on the higher side due to the large number of pupils scoring over 95%. Every course has a restricted number of seats, and despite the extremely high cut-offs, we wind up enrolling students in excess of the sanctioned capacity. We must admit the student if he or she meets the cut-off and the eligibility criteria “
The cut-offs for several merit-based undergraduate programmes are expected to be up this year, according to principals of numerous Delhi University institutions, due to a greater number of students scoring above 95 percent. The number of students applying to specific courses and universities will determine the cut-off marks.
“High board exam results would have an influence on the cut-off marks, but it will also depend on how many students apply”. – Gyantosh Jha, principal of Atma Ram Sanatan Dharma College. “The cut-offs will grow higher, but how much higher will vary from institution to college”. – Manoj Sinha, head of Aryabhatta College.
