Delhi University first cut-off list to be out today

Mumbai University Admission Cut Off

There was a considerable drop in the cut-offs of most courses, including English (Honours), B Com (H) and Economics (H), from previous year. In humanities stream, Khalsa again set the highest cut-off at 99% for BA (Hons) Political Science, according to the list available on DU website.

Similarly cut-offs at Ramjas College also dropped for most subjects.

SRCC had pegged it just a little higher at 97.75 per cent, for the Economics (Honors) and B.Com (Honors). This year however, the cut-off did not touch the mark of 100 percent but stayed at 97.75 percent, which is still quite high. "So we decided it is better to give a reasonable first cutoff this year to reduce the burden on students". "You can always shift to another college when the second or third cut-offs are announced", said G.K. Jha, Principal of Atma Ram Sanatan Dharma (ARSD) College. Ramjas College previous year set the record for the highest cut-off, with 99.25 per cent for BCom (Hons). At Shri Ram College of Commerce (SRCC), admissions for B.A. (Hons.) Economics opened at 98.25% and closed at 97.25%.
