What are the expected cut-off for Eco & Eng hons in top DU colleges this year?4 min read


In the last few years, the frequency of students scoring cent percent in the board examination has seen a massive surge in numbers.

As the percentages keep rising, the cutoff marks set by the colleges soar higher every year while creating a tough competition for the students who look for the opportunity to land seats at their dream colleges or course. Sometimes even a point one percent difference can make people lose their chances of getting admission into their favorite colleges.

In 2015, as many as two colleges required a candidate to score a minimum of 100 per cent marks in order to get admission to the BSc (Hons) Computer Science programs in the first cut off. Similarly, the cut-off for BCom (Hons) and BA (Hons) Economics have also seen record high in the last couple of years.

With this year’s admission process knocking at the door, there are a few things which should be expected. Read on to know about them!

  1. There are chances of the reconsideration of 5 cutoffs releasing policy as it led to huge inconvenience last year and many haven’t been yet refunded their admission amount in the case of their transfer from one college to the other.
  2. Expect a marginal increase of 0.5%-2.0% increase in case of courses like Economics & B.Com(H), English etc. The first two cutoffs, if they’re released by the University shall be high but would ultimately be scaled down based upon admissions.
  3. The entire process of admission, including that for ECA & Sports, including the payment of fees is to be made online this year too. This process last year had put a marginal check on many corrupt practices during sports quota admissions

The case is similar for BA and BSc courses, though the trends have witnessed the decrease of the first cut off marks for these courses at a number of colleges.
