DU 2018 Admissions: St Stephen’s cutoff for BA, English, History go up; Dip in Sanskrit and BSc cutoff

DU Admission 2018-19 - As Delhi University aspirants eagerly await cut-off for different colleges, St Stephen’s College has announced its first round admissions with higher cut-off for BA Programme, Mathematics (H), English (H) and History (H) even as the cut-off for BSc and Sanskrit eased this year as compared to last year.

St Stephen’s College usually announces its admission cutoff a few days in advance to the announcement by other DU colleges. The 2018 admission cut-off for all 77 Delhi University affiliated colleges is expected by June 19.

 

The St Stephen’s College is first to announce the cutoff with its first list announced on June 11, 2018.
