The aspirants’ waiting period is over, for Delhi University (DU) has kick-started the admission process from Wednesday, 29th June, by releasing the first cut-off lists.
Find the lists for Kirori Mal College and Maharaja Agrasen College here:
At Kirori Mal College, the cutoff stood at 96.5 % for B.A.[Hons.] English, B.A.[Hons.] Political Science and B.A Programme while at Maharaja Agrasen College the B.Com[Hons.] cut off was set at 96.5% and the B.A.[Hons.] Journalism was set at 96%. B.A.[Hons.] English at MAC has its first cut off set at 95% while it stood at 91% for B.Sc Mathematical Science.
The cutoffs are likely to remain high, what with over 6,000 applicants scoring 95% and above in aggregate in the boards of Class 12. For students who aspire to secure admission in the popular colleges, the competition is only getting tougher and according to sources, there will be a number of colleges where many courses will not remain open beyond the second cutoff. So students, hope for the best!
The best of four aggregate is bound to go even higher as an unprecedented amount of candidates have scored more than 90% in the Class 12 exams this year across education boards. An official at the Dean of Students’ Welfare, DU, said, “This would probably take the cutoff of DU colleges up by as much as 1% in sought after colleges, which already touched above 95% last year.”
Since the rat race is growing faster and tougher by the minute, it doesn’t hurt to look at the small windows of advantages available. For example, girls must keep up with the cutoffs of those 24 colleges, which have 1% point relaxation for them, including campus colleges like Sri Venkateswara and Ramjas.
Also, for admission to honours in any language course, advantage of 2% in the best four percentage may be given to those candidates who have studied that particular elective language.
The candidates will no longer have to stand in long lines or for that matter, even rush to the colleges or the university itself for the cutoff lists, thanks to the admission process being held online completely. The aspirants can check out the respective cutoff lists on Thursday morning and if they meet the eligibility for the same, they may log in to the admission portal and choose the college and course they prefer.
After that, the procedure is pretty simple. One simply has to take a printout of the completed form, along with the listed documents and self attested copies and visit the designated college on any of the three days of admission.
But students should make it a point to reach the college for verification of the documents and approval of admission well ahead of the deadline, which is before 1 p.m. in case of morning colleges and between 4 p.m. and 7 p.m. in case of evening colleges.
Subject to the availability of seats, candidates who fail to qualify under the given cutoff list, may be considered for admission in the immediate next cutoff list only on the last date of admission, according to the DU admission policy.
So dear students of all fields, buck up! University Express wishes you all the very best.
