It is admission season. And like every year in the recent past, Delhi University is in the news once again with the admission process in the varsity kicking off on Friday

The university has received a total of 2,50,914 applications for the 54,000 seats in its 63 colleges. Significantly, in a shift from previous years, no DU college has set the cut-off at 100 per cent for the first list of admissions to undergraduate courses. 

But that doesn’t mean the cut-offs have dropped dramatically.

Ramjas College, for instance, has set the highest cut-offs for the academic session, at 99.25% for the BCom Honours course, 98.75% for the BCom course and 98.5% for Economics Honours.

The cut-off for Hansraj College has remained unchanged across streams, with Economics Honours setting the highest bar at 98%. Sri Ram College of Commerce (SRCC) announced its cut-offs at 98.25% for Economics Honours and 98% for BCom Honours. Miranda House has set the cut-off for science courses at the same level as last year, and its highest cut-off is for Economics Honours at 97.75%.

Lady Sri Ram College has announced high cut-offs for a range of courses, including Psychology at 98.50%, English at 98.25%, Economics at 98% and Commerce Honours at 98%. The cut-off at Sri Guru Teg Bahadur Khalsa College for a BSc in Electronics is 99%. 

Needless to say, social media users haven’t passed up the chance to troll DU for its infamous cut-offs.
