Guwahati: With a marginal hike in cut-off marks from 2 to 4 percent in comparison to previous year, the admissions for the first batch of degree courses at the Cotton College State University (CCSU) continued for the second day in the science stream on Tuesday. The cutoff for the science stream is set at 83.3% this year.
M Patgiri, Faculty Member of CCSU stated that this year, there has been a slight increase of 2 to 4 per cent. Last year, the general cutoff was at 78.3 per cent. The system is based on availability of seats in different subjects.
According to the information, the admissions started with a huge rush of students on Monday. The admission process continued the next day, though the number of students had depleted. At CCSU, around 350 seats are available in the three-year degree course (TDC) level for the B Sc programme. The cutoff marks of some of the popular subjects have marginally risen.
As per sources, the cut-off for physics was 91% as compared to last year's 87%. The cut-off for mathematics, this year, increased by 2 per cent, from 89% of last year’s to 91 per cent. It was 89 per cent for geology as compared to last year’s 85 per cent. With an increase of 1%, the cutoff for zoology was 87 per cent, in comparison to 86 per cent of last year. Statistics had the lowest cutoff among all subjects.
However, the students seeking admissions were expecting higher cutoff marks, as it is the first admission procedure for the new state university. Furthermore, the current trend in the admission cutoff rate for Delhi University going even 100 per cent in some colleges was also a prime reason for such anticipation. As per the university official, the admission process for the arts stream at the TDC level will begin from July 10.
