There was a very big margin in the first cut-off of English journalism and Hindi journalism. The first cut-off went highest in the Delhi college of arts and commerce at the rate of 98.5% while the first cut-off Hindi journalism was the highest in Bhim Rao Ambedkar college at 86%. Even after having  ahigher cut-off, the seats of English journalism were taken up in the early cut-off while Hindi journalism was still taking admissions till the last cut-off.

According to an associate professor of Hindi journalism, at Ram Lal Anand College, Rakesh Kumar, this is happening because the Hindi jounrlaism course is not popular and for it, one must have studied Hindi till class 12th. But the students who opt for Science and Commerce lose the track of Hindi, and only students from rural areas come to opt this course which is why the cut-offs are kept low. He also added that Hindi journalism doesn’t have a well formed department and the course runs on self finance due to which there is lack of infrastructure and no permanent faculty. Even at the time of placements, media companies prefer only English or bilingual students, which is a disadvantage to thos coming from Hindi medium.

While on the other hand, Aakriti Kohli, who is an assistant professor at DCAC in the department of journalism said that English is now an aspirational language because in bigger cities no parent or even student want to go for Hindi and are being constantly encourage to read, write and speak English. She also added that to build a career in newspaper or TV journalism, Hindi might be a good option but English Journalism also opens the way to public relations, advertising and corporation.
