No 100% cut-off this year: DU

The prospective students have been reassured by Delhi University officials that last year’s 100 per cent cut-off debacle would not happen again.

‘Although the cut-off is expected to increase again due to the students’ performance in the board exams, I can assure the students that it won’t go to 100 per cent this year,’ said J M Khurana, university’s Dean for Student Welfare. Although, Khurana denied that the university had set any guidelines for the colleges to determine cut-offs, he also remained confident that the cut-off would not touch 100 per cent this time.

The first cut-off list would be out on 26 June. Last year, in its first cut-off list, Shri Ram College of Commerce [SRCC] fixed the cut-off for its BCom [Honours] course at 100 per cent for non-commerce aspirants Despite the reassurances, the student community is waiting with bated breath.

‘I have filled the forms, but last year’s 100 per cent cut-off at Shri Ram College of Commerce still puts a question mark on the chances of getting the admission,’ said Rashmi who has scored 96 per cent.

Her sentiments were echoed by many others who stood in the long queues at the north campus’s art faculty to submit admission forms on the last day. ‘I have applied but honestly, with 86 per cent marks, I guess I will either have to drop a year or I will have to go abroad for my further studies or prepare for some competitive exam next year,’ said Pooja, a science student.

Perhaps, the cut-off may not be 100 per cent, but with the number of students scoring above 97 per cent in the Boards having increased, the cut-off is bound to increase as well.


The first cut-off list for Delhi University’s Non-Collegiate Women’s Education Board [NCWEB] were announced on Thursday.

Students do not need to attend regular classes for these courses. Popular colleges such as Hansraj and Lakshmibai have kept the cut off for general category at 76 and 72 per cent respectively.

Cut-off for BCom has increased by three per cent this year.
