DU Admissions 2015: 1st Cutoff Analysis; Bizarre cutoffs in 2 colleges
Apratim Chatterjee, 25 Jun 2015, #DU

Much awaited 1st cutoff of Delhi University for admissions to UG courses for the academic session 2015 was declared on June 24 midnight with a ‘bizarre cutoff marks’ as high as 100 for B.Sc Hons Computer Science course in as many as 2 DU colleges. Surprisingly, an aspirant who does not have the Computer Science needs a score 2.5 percent beyond a perfect 100 percent as per the ‘Best of Four’ criteria, thus making it impossible for those coming from a different discipline.

Bizarre Cutoffs

While the cut-off lists do not mention their actual cut-off for selected candidates going beyond 100 per cent, the hidden criteria says it all.

According to the ‘Best of Four’ criteria, candidates need 100 percent for admission in BSC Computer Science Course in IP College of Women. Additionally, the candidates who score 100 percent in best of four but don’t have Computer Science as their subject in Class XII will be considered for admission at 97.5 percent, due to a reduction criteria that is already in place.  Thus, such students will never get admission opportunities in this college despite scoring 100 percent. In fact, they would virtually need 102.5 percent to get a seat at this college.

There are at least four colleges which have come out with such a bizarre cut-off for their most popular subjects. The list below brings you colleges and courses with 100 per cent cutoff.

hey Im student of class 12 and i want to do bed after 12th so please help me how can i prepare for du entrance

Rohan Rawat 20th Nov, 2019

Hi there ,

First of all All the best for your class 12 boards, my only advise to you is to just focus on your class 12 boards exams and try to excel in them. Try to get as high percentage as you can get,this will make yourself among the top creamy layer of student and the selection for  Top B.Ed colleges will become much easier.

Now just have a glimpse of DU admissions,

The B.Ed colleges of Delhi University follow a set pattern of admitting students to the course. This is in the form of an exclusive B.Ed entrance examination, on the basis of the scores in which, a merit list is prepared .(Try to score as high as possible) because  candidates looking forward to securing a seat in Delhi University B.Ed colleges are required to feature in the merit list of the B.Ed entrance examination to become eligible to participate in the B.Ed counselling process.The candidate who score 65 % or more in the written examination will get a good chance of receiving call for the next level of selection or interview. Next level is strictly based on the communication skills otherwise the interview may not yield positive result.

Details of the entrance examination:

  • Duration of the entrance test will be of 2 hours’.
  • There will be 150 objective type questions involved in the exam form General Knowledge and Teaching Aptitude; Language Proficiency; Reasoning and Subject Knowledge up to class X.
  • For every wrong answer ¼ mark will be deduct.

I hope this will help!!!
