With the Delhi University’s first cut off list due to release sometime next week, it is very likely that cutoffs will be soaring sky-high. And no matter how much you studied there is a chance that you might not get the college of your dreams. But that doesn’t mean you can’t become a part of the Delhi University family.
Learning to Manage Expectations
Don’t pressure yourself the days leading up to the cut off! The marks you scored, no matter what, are not the only indication of your hard work and the previous fourteen years of schooling. During this time, don’t shy away from validating yourself. No one can predict what the future truly holds for you. The University has thousand of seats and lakhs of applicants, so even if you don’t find the seat of your choice you can always scout for something else. It might just be that you discover a new path for yourself.
But if being part of the Delhi University is your dream, there are many colleges that offer admissions (in the general category) for students with less than 90% best-of-four.
The first list undoubtedly will have crazy-high cutoffs. So, what you should do is place your name down tentatively for the college and course that matches your percentage and wait as the next cut off rolls. Typically, the university releases five cut-offs before starting classes and even after, it releases at least two to three more lists. I, personally, did not get enrolled on my current college till the third or fourth list.
It’s about Learning! Mostly.
So what if you don’t get admission into the college of your choice? You will still be a part of this historic University and finally get a degree from a prestigious university in the country. It is to feel lost in a college you think you don’t belong in but it’s all about learning. Try to be the best at the subjects you opt for instead of cursing the institute you belong to. Moreover, I personally suggest opting for the course you want at a ‘not a college of your choice’ rather than the course you don’t want at a ‘great college’. Unless, of course, they have a great party scene. In that case, I say go for it. I mean who likes studying anyway.
The cut-offs will be released here.
