100 pc cut-offs of DU colleges leave aspirants dejected
I will take admission to that college and wait for the cut-off at Acharya Narendra Dev to come down, she said. Another DU aspirant Prishya Jain, who has scored 98.25 percent in best of four subjects, wants to pursue BCom Honours in Shri Ram College of Commerce and Lady Shri Ram College but the high cut-offs have put a spanner. I will wait for the subsequent cut-offs for these colleges.
The cent percent cut-offs of Delhi University colleges have left many aspirants who have scored above 90 percent dejected and are now scouting for alternatives as they feel that their dream of getting admissions into DU might not become reality.
DU on Friday announced its first cut-off list for undergraduate admissions with prominent colleges like Shri Ram College of Commerce and Hindu College pegging the cut-offs at 100 percent for various courses.
Bhavika, a Chandigarh-based aspirant, has 95.5 percent in her best of four and wants to pursue BA (Honours) Economics from either Lady Shri Ram College or Shri Ram College of Commerce.
''Seeing the cut-offs, DU looks like a distant dream at the moment. I have applied under the ECA quota, for which the admissions will happen after seats under the various cut-offs are filled. There is a lot of time to go for that. As a backup plan, I have taken admission in Symbiosis Law School, Pune but DU is my first preference,'' she said.
''They should have held the central universities common entrance test for aspirants. I didn't get enough marks and had there been exams, I am sure I would have scored 96 percent or 97 percent. I want to get into BCom(Honours) in a good North Campus college. I will wait for the remaining cut-offs but I won't settle for a lesser college in DU,'' she said.
''The cut-offs are quite high and I won't be able to make it in the first list in the campus colleges. However, I am meeting the cut-offs in Deshbandhu College and Aryabhatta College. I will take admission in Deshbandhu College and then migrate to the college I want if I manage to meet the scores in any of the subsequent lists,'' Zahoor said.
Riya Sharma, who has scored 94.8 percent in her Best of Four, wants to pursue a BSc (Hons) Biomedical Science, which is offered in three colleges -- Acharya Narendra Dev, Bhaskaracharya College of Applied Sciences, and Shaheed Rajguru College of Applied Sciences.
''At Bhaskaracharya, the cut-off for the course is 99 percent while at Acharya Narendra Dev it is 97 percent. I am meeting the eligibility at Shaheed Rajguru where the cut-off is 94 percent. I will take admission to that college and wait for the cut-off at Acharya Narendra Dev to come down,'' she said.
Another DU aspirant Prishya Jain, who has scored 98.25 percent in best of four subjects, wants to pursue BCom Honours in Shri Ram College of Commerce and Lady Shri Ram College but the high cut-offs have put a spanner.
''I will wait for the subsequent cut-offs for these colleges. I have taken admission in a college in my hometown as a backup option,'' Jain said.
''The first and the second cut-offs are higher because colleges do not want to run the risk of excessive admissions. The rule is that everyone within the cut-off has to be accommodated irrespective of the number of seats,'' she said.
