Srinagar: Jammu and Kashmir Chief
Minister Omar Abdullah, whose two sons study in a Delhi
school, is worried over the high cut-offs for admissions to
colleges in the national capital.
"Worry? I`m terrified for my sons because in five
years, when Zamir (Omar`s son) moves to college, the cut-offs
will be even more insane," Omar wrote on micro-blogging site
twitter.com.

Expressing bemusement over the high cut-offs, Omar
asked, "if 100 per cent is the minimum requirement to be
considered for admission, are there kids coming with more than
100 out of 100?"

The Chief Minister said he was happy that he finished
college 20 years ago as the present cut-offs were "scary".
"With these kinds of cut-off marks, I`d have been doing
a correspondence course because I wouldn`t have even gotten a
`pass course` admission," he said.
