CBSE Class 12th result was declared by the board on Friday and around 70,000 students have passed the exam with more than 95 percent marks. The impact of high scoring would be seen in the cut-off lists by the universities, the administrators of Delhi University have said that the cut-off list would increase further.
DU officials have said that 70,000 seats would be available for undergraduate courses, the number is equivalent to the number of students who scored more than 95 percent in the CBSE board. On average, every year 70 percent of students in the University of Delhi belong to the CBSE board. This year, it is expected that the first cut-off of maximum colleges may touch 100 percent.
It is expected that the first cut-off list would be released between September 8 and September 10.
Last year, Lady Shri Ram College’s first cut-off was 100 percent for three programs and 30 programs have the first cut-off of 90 percent.
Delhi University’s Admission Committee Chairperson Rajeev Gupta said, “From whatever information we are getting right now, it appears that the cut-offs will increase. But more can be said once the results have been properly analyzed. The colleges will now have to analyze and decide. We are also waiting for the remaining state boards to release their results, after which we will have more clarity.”
The Delhi University would start the under-graduate admission process from August 2 and the last date of registration would be August 31. The DU cut-off list is prepared according to the marks scored by the students in Class 12th board exams.
Hindu college Principal Anju Srivastava said that it is expected that this year less popular course’s first cut-off would also go high. She said, “If there are such a large number of students who’ve got 95% and above, the campus colleges are all likely to be entangled in catering to these students. The cut-offs of the less popular courses are also likely to be very high. We have limited seats and if CBSE and state board results are both like this, overall we can expect a very high cut-off.”
