Delhi University 2012 cut-off list announced
New Delhi: The Delhi University on Monday announced its first cut-off list, amid anxiety in the Class 12 passout students who are hoping to get admissions in the prestigious University.
However, unlike last year DU colleges did not announce 100 per cent cut off percentage following much hue and cry over the issue.
The prestigious Hindu college put a ceiling of 99.25 per cent to its cut-off range.
Sri Ram College of Commerce (SRCC), one of the most coveted institutions at the varsity, that had sparked much debate last year by putting its first cut off ceiling at 100 per cent, chose to keep its cut off for B.Com (Hons) in a bracket of 96.5 to 98.5 per cent.
Though there was no 100 per cent shocker this time, the required percentages remained at a high level, in some cases even crossing last year`s cut offs.
Hindu College, whose first cut off percentage last year in B.Com (Hons) was 95.5 to 99, raised it this time by 0.25 per cent to a range of 96.25 to 99.25 per cent.
Hans Raj College announced a first cut off of 96.25 to 98.25 per cent for in B.Com (Hons) as against last year`s 96 to 97 per cent.
In the coveted B.A. Economics (Hons) course, SRCC put its cut off at 96.5 to 98.5 per cent, while Hindu declared a cut off of 95.75 to 99.25 per cent, again raising the bar as against last year`s 95.9 to 96.5 per cent.
It is noteworthy that last year the cut offs were announced in a situation when the University was experimenting with the doing away of pre admission forms. This year, the varsity re-introduced the forms, giving the colleges a better idea of how many students were looking for which courses.
Last year, the 100 per cent cut off had sparked a major outcry, prompting even HRD Minister Kapil Sibal to intervene and ask the Vice Chancellor to look into the issue.
This year before the admission season began, Sibal again assured students seeking admission in Delhi University that there would be "no problem" of the kind they faced last year when the cut-off touched 100 per cent.
B.Com (Hons) remained the most popular course on offer as did Economics (Hons), with the highest cut offs being found in these subjects.
Among other colleges, Lady Sri Ram kept its cut offs in both Economics and Commerce at last year`s mark of 97 per cent.
While Gargi College declared a B.Com (Hons) cut off of 94.5 to 97.5, Ramjas put it at 96 to 98 per cent as against last year`s 95 to 98 per cent this time.
While cut off in the popular English Hons course was up to 92 per cent, 93 per cent and 98.5 per cent in Daulat Ram, Gargi and Hans Raj colleges respectively, a number of colleges were offering English Hons at a much lower percentage.
In Science courses, Computer Science, Maths and Physics remained the most popular courses.
