New Delhi: As the first cut-off list for admission to the Four-Year Undergraduate Programme (FYUP) was issued by Delhi University on Wednesday night, the cut-off for B Tech was 99 percent. Even in normal DU colleges, the students seeing admission to B Tech course required an oddly high minimum score.
As per the first cut-off list, only those scoring above 99.75 per cent could hope to get seats at Bhaskaracharya College of Applied Science. Jai Prakash, principal of Bhaskarayacharya College said the cut-off has been kept high as the number of seats available for the course is just 46. Keeping a low percentage as cut-off would not be viable for us.
As the entrance examination for journalism was cancelled, the cut-off at Lady Shri Ram College for Women (LSR) in the South Campus was 98.50 per cent. Correspondingly, Delhi College of Arts and Commerce issued a first cut-off of 97.4 per cent for its journalism course.
Apart from Journalism and B Tech with high cut-off percentages, the cut-off for Economics is 97.5% at Hindu College as well as at Shri Ram College of Commerce (SRCC). The cut-off for the science courses in all colleges of Delhi University is set at an average of 95%. At Hindu College, the highest cut-off percentage for Physics, Chemistry and Mathematics is 96.5 per cent.
In addition, the students seeking to study subjects like English literature are required to have about 100 percent scores. While, only those scoring above 97.5% would be considered for admission to the English course at the Lady Shri Ram College for Women. The lowest cut-off percentage is for the honours degree in Sanskrit. With a relatively modest 55% score, the interested student could expect to study the classical language and its literature at Lady Sri Ram College.
