Express news service
NEW DELHI: The race to secure a seat for undergraduate courses at prestigious University of Delhi colleges has started with up to eight colleges announcing 100% cuts for at least ten courses.
This is the first time that so many colleges have announced a 100 percent threshold, as a large number of students have scored over 95 percent this year because of Class XII scores based on the assessment. Jury examinations did not take place this time given the Covid-19 situation.
The Shri Ram College of Commerce published the highest threshold with 100 percent marks for two UG courses – BA Economics (Honors) and BCom (Honors). It is also the first time that even less popular colleges like Deen Dayal Upadhyay College and Shaheed Sukhdev College of Business Studies have set 100% thresholds for IT.
The other colleges to have announced 100% cuts are Hindu, Ramjas and Hansraj for BA. Political Science (with distinction) and Sri Guru Teg Bahadur Khalsa College for BCom (with distinction).
Ramjas has also set 100 percent marks for the bachelor’s degree in physics this year, while the located Jesus and Mary College has said the same for the bachelor’s degree in psychology (with distinction).
Ramjas announced a 99% cut for at least 11 UG courses this year in its first list. Admission against the first cut-off will start from Monday October 4 and students will have three days to apply and be admitted. They will also benefit from two additional days for the payment of fees. Like last year, admissions will be done entirely online.
Five cut-off lists this year, students in suspense
Lady Shri Ram College, which last year declared 100% thresholds for three major subjects – BA (Honors) Economics, BA (Honors) Political Science and BA (Honors) Psychology – set the highest threshold at 99.75%. this year for the Honors BCom, BA in Psychology and BA in Political Science courses.
Ramjas, Atma Ram Sanatan Dharma, Miranda House, Hansraj and Kirori Mal Colleges announced 99.75 and 99 percent for popular courses such as B.Com, BA in Political Science, Psychology and other courses.
“As a result of the assessment-based results this year, a large number of students scored above 95 percent. For example, many colleges have decided to set a threshold of 100 percent for popular courses. It is not up to us to go beyond 100% this year; we have filtered as much as possible this year, ”said Dr. Suman, member of the admissions committee.
Additionally, there will be five cutoff lists in total this year. Over 2 lakh students have registered against the 70,000 undergraduate places at DU College this year.
Meanwhile, the percentage cutoffs have left many aspirants who scored over 90 percent discouraged and are now looking for alternatives as they feel their dream of being admitted to DU might not come true.
