After a week-long delay in releasing cut-offs due to the controversy around the four-year undergraduate programme (FYUP), Delhi University’s first cut-off list was out on June 30 and admissions began fromTuesday, July 1. Students, who had not applied to undergraduate courses in DU earlier, can now do so.

On Monday, cut-offs in Delhi University (DU) hit the 100 per cent-mark once again after three lesser-known colleges announced that admissions to Computer Science (Honours) will require the perfect score. The first cut-off list was announced by DU late Monday night.

Two colleges in South Campus — Atma Ram Sanatan Dharma and Acharya Narendra Dev — will admit students having scored 100 per cent under the general category.

In an unprecedented development, a college in East Delhi — Shyama Prasad Mukherjee College — wants students with the perfect score not just in general category but even for students with disabilities.

At ANDC, the Computer Science (H) cut-off ranges from 95 to 100 per cent while at ARSD, the cut-offs for the course are between 98 to 100 per cent.

The cut-offs at SPM, on the other hand, range from 97 to 100 per cent for general and Persons with Disabilities (PwD) categories.

Three years ago, the DU cut-off for B Com (H) was 100 per cent at Shri Ram College of Commerce for some students under the general category.

Cut-offs soared high in seven colleges, including some in North Campus, with several courses witnessing a cut-off range above 99 per cent.

In a first, Journalism (Honours) at Delhi College of Arts and Commerce require students to have scored 99.75 for admission to the course.

Among North Campus colleges, Hansraj and Hindu also touched the 99 per cent mark. For BCom (P) at both colleges, the cut-off range is 97.25 to 99.75 per cent. Similarly, the cut-offs for Economics (H) at Hindu College is 97.5 to 99 per cent.

With cut-offs for Computer Science (H) remaining high in most colleges, Hansraj College kept the cut-off for the course at 99.33 per cent.

After touching the 100 per cent-mark last year, Computer Science (H) at Ram Lal Anand College this year is 99 per cent.

Meanwhile, another off-campus college — Bhaskaracharya College of Applied Sciences — kept the Computer Science cut-off at 99.5 per cent.

Offered in around 11 colleges, Psychology (H) cut-offs also remained high. Ranging from 95.5 to 99.5 per cent, Gargi College announced the highest cut-offs in the subject.

ANDC not just declared the highest cut-offs but also saw a steep hike of eight per cent in Mathematics (H) and Physics (H). While the cut-off for Mathematics (H) was 87 last year, the score jumped to 95 per cent this year. Similarly, Physics (H) cut-off saw a jump from 86 to 94 per cent.
