DU Admissions: All India CBSE Topper Sarthak Agarwal in St. Stephen’s waiting list
Updated on Jan 17, 2015 - 3:43 p.m. IST by Urvashi Dalal

The DU admissions look tougher than cracking AIR 1 in the CBSE board exams. St Stephen’s College under the Central University reflected exactly the same when it could not accommodate CBSE Class XII All India Topper Sarthak Agarwal in its first admission list on July 1.

CBSE XII 2014 Topper Sarthak Agarwal, despite scoring the highest 99.6%, in his Board Exam, is in the waiting list of St. Stephen’s College for Economics (Hons.) admission. Sarthak had applied for a seat into Delhi University Eco (H) programme.



Though Sarthak immediately became a role model for lakhs of school students and an instant hit among the social media enthusiasts across different age categories after the CBSE results were declared,  his stellar performance failed to impress St Stephen’s college which denied him admission in its first list. After the first cut off of DU was released, Sarthak Agarwal found himself in the waiting list of St Stephen’s College.  As per the Official information available on the website, the name of Sarthak Agarwal can clearly be seen on the fourth number of the waiting list.


The DPS boy, though, has not lost his hope. He still believes, he can make it through 2nd or 3rd cut off list which are schedule to be released soon.


Sarthak in St. Stephen's Waiting List:



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 will end on July 3 and the second list be released on the following day.

Hello Shraddha,

DU JAT happens to be a national level entrance exam conducted for admission to professional undergraduate programmes offered by 18 colleges affiliated to Delhi University. The entrance exam acts as a gateway to the courses of BBA, BMS and BA (Hons) in Business Economics.

The DU JAT scores will enable a candidate to get admitted in one of the 18 colleges under Delhi University.

As per previous years cut-offs data, one needs to have a DUJAT score of atleast 230 in order to get admission into SSCBS and a minimum score of 200 to seek admission into DDU.

Hope this helps you. We wish you the best for your future endeavours!
