DU Admission 2020: How to calculate Best of Four?

The marks of Class XII that will be provided by the candidates on their DU application form 2020 will be calculated for the ‘Best of four’ aggregate marks. In order to calculate the best of four marks, candidates must have four subjects as follows:

  • 2 academic/elective subjects

  • 1 language subject (can be core/elective/functional)

  • 1 subject in which the admission is being sought after

For Example-

If an applicant has scored: Accountancy (90), Business Studies (92), English Core (88) and Economics (94). Total marks in four subjects are 90+92+88+94=364, Percentage is 91%.


  • The effective percentage for B.A. (Hons.) English is 91%

  • The candidate will not be eligible for B.A. (Hons.) Economics since Maths is not studied

  • B.A. (Hons.) Political Science is 91% - 2.5% = 88.5%. (Political Science is not studied & passed)

However, the process of calculating Best of four aggregate marks is different for all the different streams - Arts, Science, Commerce. But, the language subject will remain the same.

Mayank Sinha 17th Jan, 2020
Hello there,

The cutoff for BA (Hons) in Political Sciencefor top Colleges in DU for general candidates remain generally above 95 percent.
However 93 percent will be quite enough for you to get admission in the slightly lower ranked Colleges of the University. Some of them are:
  • Dyal Singh College
  • Daulat Ram College
  • Deshbandhu College
  • Maharaja Agrasen College
  • Motilal Nehru Collegeetc
Hope this helps

Is amity univeraity good for BA POLITICAL SCIENCE.or name other colleges except delhi university colleges because its cutoff is high. I cant get 96 percent. So thats the reason can u suggest me another colleges

Shubhangi sinha 17th Jan, 2020

Hello Manikanta,

Doing BA in political science from Amity University will cost you much as it's fees is high which will increase the total educational expenditure. You further have to do masters to make this degree useful although you will get good exposure and experience of learning.

Doing political science honours from government university is the best option. If not in North campus, you will definitely get admission in the colleges of South campus of DU if your percentage is not above than 90 percent.

The fees of government college is reasonable for BA hons.

Good luck,

Hope it helps :)

Yashu Shrivastava 17th Jan, 2020

Hello Suraj

For B.A course in Delhi University,candidate can either apply through Merit Basis or through entrance exam for B.A hons.

In merit basis,12th marks would be considered and the cut off through Merit Basis is very high,but as you have mentioned that you belong to OBC,but still you need at least 94+% in 12th to get admission in best colleges of Delhi University through merit basis.

Now,talking about the entrance exam,you have to appear for DU JAT exam for UG courses such as BA hons,BBA and BMS. To get more information about this exam,you can check it out here


I Hope This Helps

Best Of Luck!!!

Rose Mary George 17th Jan, 2020


I hope you don't prefer to write entrance exams.The best B.A Political Science (hons)courses are offered by colleges under Delhi University only.

This includes Lady Shri Ram college for women which is one of the best Arts colleges in our country and the political science course offered here is the best .

The admission is done through calculating the best four percentages from +2 marks . You can take admission once you clear the cutoffs and other eligibility criteria. There is no entrance exam for this course.
