College and university admissions can be quite stressful and with high cut-offs, students often lose out on studying in their dream institutes. And when it comes to Delhi University, its ‘unusual’ cut-offs have always made news. The top university always left people fuming with its bizarre expectation of setting the cut-off as high as 99 per cent! However, when they set out to lower their cut-offs for PhD admission, they went to another extreme level and set it at zero for the SC/ST candidates. The admission notice has baffled everyone and student went into a frenzy.

The university released the interview schedule and cut-off marks for the PhD admissions in the Department of Mathematics, and it left most of the students bewildered.

    The whole story is fake and miss-leading. DU has accepted that it was a mistake to print 0 cut off for SC/STs. Those who are insulting SC/STs here are basically ignorant people who don't even understand what cut off means!!

      DU announced a 0 cut off list for SC/ST because they can't reach there because of lack of facilities. They can't buy costly books and can't pay costly Coaching classes.

        DU announced '0' cut off for SC/ST because it is their agenda to insult SC/STs... There are stupids sitting in responsible positions who don't understand what cut off is... Now no one is able to answer or explain in DU as why and on what calculations or basis did they printed the cut off equal to zero. What DU has announced regarding the cut off of SC/|STs could be a printing mistake, a pre-planned conspiracy or it could be (though not possible) that the seats were infinite and/or applicants were zero. So stupid are the officer sitting in DU??

        Reservations at the start levels can be justified, that too only if the aspirant doesn't have a financial support. But at higher levels of education, reservations are a mockery, that don't take the interest or capability of the candidate into account. This will only make these reserved communities to stand still and not want to improve, i.e. you don't have to study that hard as you will anyway get that PhD seat, you have to just clear the bare minimum to get that job etc. May be reservations should be restricted for one time usage in a lifetime if you used reservation to get a seat in IIT, then you cannot use it again for a job or PhD admission.

          Please do not stay ignorant for your whole life and to a minimum, please start studying proper books like that of NCERT and written by good authors of sociology. Please see the TV Series "Samvidhaan" directed by Shyam Benegala and easily available on You Tube. At present your knowledge about reservation system in India is at pathetic level. Please accept your low level of education and understanding and without losing a moment, start collecting correct and useful information, which you are supposed to have at this level but sadly, you don't have.

                  Giving reservations in school is understandable but why in colleges and work places? After primary education, if the person cannot do anything for themselves, they cannot be considered eligible for higher education. If it a concession in fees it can be validated, but scoring low marks and still getting a post which someone else deserves is just not right.
