DU Admission 2020: How to Calculate Best of Four Marks

The admission to various undergraduate programmes in DU affiliated colleges is done on the basis of the Class XII marks provided on the application forms by candidates. Amongst the subjects, candidates are required to calculate their ‘Best of four’ aggregate marks keeping certain subjects in hand. In order to calculate the best of four marks, candidates must have four subjects, the terms and conditions of which are given 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: Physics (96), Chemistry (92), English Core (90) and Mathematics (94), Economics (83).

Case 1: Total marks in four subjects are 96+92+90+94=372, Percentage is 93%.


The effective percentage for B.A. (Hons.) History is 93% - 2.5% = 90.5%

B.A. (Hons.) English is 93% (as economics is not considered in Best Four)

Case 2: Total marks in four subjects are 96+90+94+83=363, Percentage is 90.75%.


The effective percentage for B.A. (Hons.) Economics is 90.75%

  • Comparing Case 1 and Case 2 - Best Four for B.A. (Hons.) Economics is 90.75%

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!!!
