Delhi University slot: Not many options for students with less than 90% – Times of India

NEW DELHI: The first cutoff list announced by Delhi University has little to offer to students who have scored between 80% and 90% in their Class XII board examinations.

Most colleges across DU have an asking score of above 90% for most of their courses with 10 courses asking for a perfect score from aspirants.

However, over 87,000 applicants who are in the 80% to 90% bracket are still left with a handful of options under the first cutoff list.

Courses like BSc (H) Home Science and BSc (Electronics) are some of the options for students in the science stream.

At Bhagini Nivedita College, the cutoff for BSc (H) Home Science increased by one percentage point and has been set at 86% this year. The cutoff for BSc (Prog) Physical Science with Chemistry and BSc (Prog) Physical Science with Computer is set at 80% this year. Last year, the cutoff for both the courses was 78%.

At Deshbandhu College on the other hand, with an asking score of 89%, BSc Applied Physical Science with Industrial Chemistry is the only course in the science stream where the cut off is below 90%.

The cutoff for courses like BSc (H) Instrumentation at Shaheed Rajguru College of Applied Sciences for Women is set at 87%, which is one percentage point less than last year.

Similarly for aspirants in the humanities stream, some of the courses available for students in this bracket are BA (H) Social Work and BA (H) Philosophy.

The cutoff for BA (H) Social Work at Aditi Mahavidyalaya is 84%— a rise by one percentage point from last year.

With a cutoff of above 90% for BA (H) Philosophy in most colleges offering the course, at Shyama Prasad Mukherjee College for Women, it is 86%, at Lakshmibai College 87% and 88% at Mata Sundri College for Women.

These are apart from language courses like Hindi, Sanskrit, Urdu, Punjabi, Bengali and others for which the cutoff is below 80% and as low as 45% in some cases.

Stating that students in this bracket should not lose hope, Hem Chand Jain, principal of Deen Dayal Upadhyaya College, said, “It is quite possible that in the second and third lists, they will get a chance. The reason behind our college having considerably high cutoffs is also because of our improved rankings. In several other colleges, it is because of the board results. Students should not lose heart as the next cutoff list should be slightly reasonable.”
