DU admission: Slight dip in a few subjects but massive jump in cutoffs for humanities
With a new-found rule to issue a single cutoff for every stream this year, mostly the colleges have stuck to their closest bidding to the upper limits. The ultimate result is the slightest dip for some and a massive jump for many course cut-offs this year, mostly in the humanities section.
In comparison with the last year’s cutoffs, this year has shown the students a tremendous increase. Ramjas College has gained its percentage from 91.5%-97.5% with the lower limit to 96% for all. This concludes a jump of 5.5% for humanities' students and a downfall of 1.5% for commerce ones.
Hindu has provided uplift of 0.75 and 0.25 points for English (Hons.) applicants from humanities and science, and commerce students will face a downfall of 0.75 percentage points. The cut-offs for English have intensively rose in off-campus colleges like Ramanujan (93% from 85%) and Dyal Singh (96% from last year's 85%).
Similar to the scenario, last year's upper limits at Hans Raj, Hindu, Kirori Mal and Ramjas are just as same as the last year. For students who are interested in proposing for admissions in Science category, BSc (H) computer science stream has experienced some of the highest cutoffs—100% for one stream at Indraprastha College and College of Vocational Studies; and 99% for a stream at ARSD, Bhaskaracharya College of Applied Sciences, PGDAV, Ram Lal Anand and Shaheed Rajguru College of Applied Sciences.
Students have to play safe during the process of inter-changeability of streams, as only limited colleges will support this procedure, which includes Deshbandhu, Dyal Singh, Maitreyi, Mata Sundri, Shaheed Bhagat Singh (morning and evening), Shyam Lal, Shivaji, Swami Shraddhanand and Zakir Hussain.
