DU 2016 admission:  Highest cut-off restricted to 99.25% in first list
Apratim Chatterjee, 30 Jun 2016, #DU



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.

If I want to get admission in BSC honours in mathematics in Delhi University on the basis of percentage scored in class 12th , then what all subjects can I register for the calculation of percentage to be written in Merit list ? Can I register with Mathematics, computer and chemistry ?

Apurv 16th Oct, 2019

Hello Anurag, Yes these three subjects are fine but you need to add one more subject in order to complete the best of four percentage. The rule is that you need one subject related to the course you are applying for, one language course(most of the students have english) and other two courses you can select as any two subjects with maximum marks.

Dear Aspirant,

If you are aiming for doing Btech, then your only choice is to give JEE exam as it is the only option you have. So I suggest you should fill up the form for JEE. It is going to be conducted in January 22, 2019. The next attempt will be in April, 2020. The complete details are here:
