The admission days are round the corner and with the release of the very first cut-off by St.Stephens for its various undergraduate courses, applicants have somewhat become spooky regarding their admission in Delhi University as tint of high cut-offs are being expected in other colleges,indicating that same trend to be followed by other colleges as well.
As of now the results of all the major state board across the country have been declared and admission fever among students can be recognisable. Keep the cut-offs “realistic” is the advocacy given by Delhi University this year being not more than 20 % seats are filled even after the declaration of first three cut-offs. “On analysing data of past few years,we saw that hardly 20% of all seats are filled in the first three cut-off lists. Through the interface, colleges can check cut-offs and determine their own list. This is only advisory in nature.” said M K Pandit, chairman of the admission advisory committee.”Most colleges prepare the final cut-offs a day before it is declared. So it is not clear how the interface will help,” said one of the representatives of Gargi college.
While taking a dig on the grounds of these higher cut-offs,officials added that senior secondary and results of 12 class board examination of Central Board of Secondary Education is the main reason for elevation in the cut-offs.This year the tremendous rise in the cut-offs of St.Stephens can be exemplary for other colleges as well and there might be the possibility of the same trend followed by other colleges.
Nonetheless Delhi University holds the prestigious position among universities housing the most sought after colleges for students across the country.
