CBSE topper Sarthak Agrawal wins SRCC seat in Economics
Updated on Jan 17, 2015 - 3:35 p.m. IST by Ashish Jha

It was a dream accomplished for CBSE topper Sarthak Agarwal as he won a seat at prestigious Sri Ram College of Commerce (SRCC).

“Sarthak Agrawal has taken admission to our college,” confirmed an official from SRCC. Sarthak took admission in BA Economics (Hon) as he was eligible for the same on the basis of our first cutoff, the official added.


SRCC first cutoff for General Science student stood at 97.25 per cent in unreserved category. The cutoff for General Commerce candidates in the college was as high as 98.25 per cent in general category.


The Delhi boy, who scored a whopping 99.6 per cent in his class XII board under CBSE, had applied for admissions in different DU colleges for BA Economics (Hon). Though he had secured admission in different colleges based on his high score in the first list itself, the high cutoff of St. Stephen’s College, interestingly, could not accommodate him in the first admission list as his name stood at 4th position in the waitlist.



The DPS student who immediately became a role model for lakhs of school students and an instant hit among the social media enthusiasts across different age categories, now aims to enter Civil Services after his graduation at Sri Ram College of Commerce (SRCC).


High cutoff for DU Colleges:


With Delhi University releasing its first cut off list for admissions on June 30, 2014, the high cut off for many courses in top colleges came as a shock for aspirants seeking admissions to the recently revised UG programmes.


The first cutoff list of Delhi University was released on June 30, 2014 with as many as three colleges declaring 100% as cut off for some top courses. Colleges like Atma Ram Sanatan Dharam College, Acharya Narendra Dev College and Shyama Prasad Mukherjee College, have set new benchmarks by declaring 100% cutoff for the first time in general category. Sri Ram College of Commerce and St. Stephen’s have declared 99% and 98% in Commerce respectively.


 The first round of admission process which started on July 1, 2014 ended on July 3 and the second cutoff list were released on July 3 late night by different DU colleges.
