DU 2016 admission: Highest cut-off restricted to 99.25% in first list

DU 2016 admission: Highest cut-off restricted to 99.25%

The much awaited first admission list of Delhi University for 2016 has reflected no significant change in the cut-off percentages for majority of the 58 undergraduate programmes offered across 77 colleges under the university. While computer science, whose cut-off had touched 100% last year, has been restricted to 99 per cent this year, B.Com (H) registered the highest cut-off with Ramjas college keeping the ceiling at 99.25 per cent. Cut-off percentages for popular subjects like Mathematics and Economics did not reflect any substantial change either ways. Surprisingly, Hindi subject has witnessed the highest jump in the cut-offs with Gargi College ceiling its demand at 85%, up 15 points from that of last year.

Careers360 brings you an analysis of the first cut-off marks announced of popular programmes offered across the varsity’s colleges for DU 2016 UG admissions.

Course-wise analysis of DU 1st Cut-off

A surprising element of DU 2016 admission is that cut-offs for undergraduate programmes like Economics,  Mathematics and Computer Science, which attract a largest pool of applicants, have broken previous years’ trend of generating the highest percentage points. Indraprastha College for Women and College of Vocational Studies, whose cut-offs for B.Sc (H) Computer Science had touched 100 per cent last year, brought down their demands by 3 and 5 percentage points, respectively. Percentage cut-offs for Economics has remained largely unchanged with Hindu college bringing its cut-off down to 97.75% from last year’s 98%.

Interestingly, Physics and Chemistry are some of the few subjects where the cut-offs for major colleges have witnessed a slight increase over last year. SGTB Khalsa College has registered the highest cut-off for Physics as well as Chemistry at 98.33%, up from 2.33 points for each of the programme from that of last year.

An expansion of Hindi media across print and online platforms is being seen as a possible factor behind the sharp jump in the subject’s cut-off across major colleges. While SGND Khalsa college kept its ceiling at 93 per cent-up from 8 points from last year, huge demand for the programme at Gargi pushed the cut-off by 15 per cent over the last year.

DU college-wise 2016 cut-off

Among the colleges, there is indication of Delhi University’s North Campus capturing the brightest chunk as the percentage cut-off across campuses. While Ramjas recorded the highest cut-off across subjects, it was followed closely by SGTB Khalsa which took the second slot with 99 per cent cut-off in B.Sc (H) Electronics.
