Delhi University colleges announced first cutoff list for admission to their respective undergraduate programmes on June 30 even as soaring cutoffs reflected tougher admission proposition for candidates in the revised 3-year courses after scrapping of last year’s FYUP.
The admissions to the various courses in the affiliated colleges of the varsity shall start from July 1 and candidates will need to complete the admission formalities by July 3. Based on the number of vacant seats in round 1, the second cutoff will be released on July 4, DU officials said.
First Cutoff Highlights:
Along SRCC which continued with its high cutoff with over 99 percent in Commerce (H) for 2014 admissions, many other colleges including Atma Ram Santan Dharam College (ARSD), Acharya Narendra Dev College (ANDC) and Shyama Prasad Mukherjee College (SPMC) have set new benchmark with their respective cutoff for general category at 100%.
As many as seven other colleges also announced first cutoff at 99% for their respective 3-year UG programmes.
While SRCC has marked 98.25% as the highest cutoff for admissions to BA Economics Programme, two colleges in South Campus - Atma Ram Santan Dharam College (ARSD) and Acharya Narendra Dev College (ANDC), have set their cutoff at 100% for the general category candidates who wish to apply for B.Sc Programme in Computer Science.
This year, even the lesser known colleges have hit the cutoff of 100%. For example, Shyama Prasad Mukherjee (SPM) College, situated in East Delhi has set the cutoff for B.Sc Computer Science as high as 100% for the general category. Surprisingly, it has announced the cutoff for PwD candidates as well. Similarly, Bhaskaracharya College of Applied Sciences (BCAS) cutoff for B.Sc in Computer Science 3-year programme is 99.5%.
Meanwhile, St. Stephen’s has said that it may cut seats for admissions in the 3-year programme of Economics and English by 50% following the roll back of the programmes in 3-year format.
Many colleges have also brought back additional eligibility criteria as followed during admissions to 2012-13 academic years after the UGC directed the colleges to follow the same. E The move may affect the admission possibilities of the students who have opted for vocational subjects in Class 12.
The cutoff for English, which drew as many as 158372 applications, is the highest for the general category candidates at Hindu College. While the Hindu College cutoff is 98.5%, Miranda House reported English cutoff at 97% for the general category candidates.
For the very first time, cutoffs for courses like Journalism and Mass Communication have also soared high. Delhi College of Arts and Commerce has declared that it shall be admitting students in the first lot who have secured as much as 99.75% in the qualifying board exams.
