Delhi University’s prestigious St Stephen’s College on Saturday announced the first cut-off list for the 2016-17 academic session with the highest requirement being for English honours at 99% even as the institution saw a dip in the number of applications this year, reports Live Mint.
While the college received 32,100 applications, St. Stephen’s has received only 23,500 applications for their 400 seats, this year. The cut-off for admission to the college remained almost similar to that of the previous year.
Humanities’ cut-off for English Honours stands at 97.5%, making it the highest cut-off for the subjects on offer at the college. The cut-off for the same works out to 99% for Commerce and 98% for Science.
Coming to Economics honours course, the cut-off is at 98.25% for Commerce students, 97.25% for Science and 96.75% for Humanities.
The cut-offs are 98%, 97%, 96.5%, 80% and 97% for History, BA programme, Mathematics, Sanskrit and Philosophy, respectively.
Same as 2015, the highest cut-off is for English at 99%, this year too. The cut-offs for BA programme, Economics and Maths, however, have actually dropped for certain streams this year.
Unlike other DU colleges, St Stephen’s conducts an aptitude test of 30-minute duration and personal interview for those figuring in the cut-off list. As Live Mint reports, the interview and aptitude test will begin from 20 June and the list of those eligible for it will be put on college’s website by Sunday.
