Delhi University Admissions: Colleges revise cut-offs
Delhi University declared its first cut-off list and evoked a disappointing reaction from most of the aspiring students. Keeping in mind the disparity in the upper and lower limit for the courses, Moti Lal Nehru College in South Campus redefined its cut-off.
According to the previous figures, the cut-off for the BA course was set at 72-87 per cent. The recently declared cut-off for the BA course is now set at 82 percent and available at the official website of Moti Lal Nehru college. The University of Delhi has also asked colleges such as Delhi College of Arts and Commerce (DCAC), Hansraj College, Zakir Hussain College and Deshbandhu College to work on a fresh cut-off score for their courses.
Meanwhile, the colleges saw a huge rush on the first day with most of the popular courses already taken.Despite the high cut-off, Delhi University received excess applications for History (Hons) while about 50 percent seats have already been taken for the Political Science (Hons) and Geography courses.
As many as 160 applications for 1,300 seats were also received for the Arts courses in the university. The seats for courses like Political Science, Geology and Life Sciences are expected to be fully occupied by today i.e June 26.
While the DU admissions are on, the Delhi University Teacher’s Association (DUTA) on June 25 wrote to the HRD Ministry to delay the implementation of the Choice Based Credit System, till all its rules and guidelines are put in place. The university has decided to implement CBCS from the academic session 2015-2016.
