Hansraj College has become the first premier Delhi University (DU) College to announce a 100% cut-off this year for its Computer Science course, followed closely by Economics and B Com (Hons) at 99.75%.
Last year, the cut-off for Computer Science was 97.25%, making the spike in cut-off percentage quite significant. Similarly, the cut-offs for Economics and B Com (Hons) last year were 98.75% and 99.25%, respectively.
The college has also released a cut-off of 99% or above for 13 of its 20 courses on offer. This includes Physics (99.66%) which was at 98.33% last year. Additionally, English, History, Chemistry, Electronics, Geology, Mathematics, Zoology, B Sc Physical Science (Chemistry) and B Sc Physical Science (Computer Science) have cut-offs of 99%.
Last year, the cut-off for English and History were 98% and 97.5%, respectively. Among science subjects, the most significant increase is in Zoology and the two Physical Science courses. The cut-off for all of them was 96.66% last year.
Meanwhile, three other DU colleges announced their cut-off lists, with Aryabhatta College announcing 98.5% for Psychology. Last year, the cut-off was 97%. The two other institutions are Deshbandhu College and College of Vocational Studies (CVS).
At Deshbandhu College, there seems to be a considerable spike in the cut-offs. The highest cut-off is for Physics at 98% which is a jump of two per cent from last year (96%). The college is also demanding a 97% cut off in 10 subjects, including Economics, B Com (Hons) and various BA programme combinations.
This is a huge jump from last year for these subjects. Most BA programme cut-offs last year were in the 86-88% range, with the highest cut-off (90%) for BA programme combinations of English + Political Science and History + Political Science. This year, there has been a 7% jump in these two combinations and 9-11% jump in other combinations.
Even the cut-off for Economics and B Com (Hons) has increased significantly from last year when the college had asked for 95.5% for Economics and 95.25% for B Com (Hons).
Arybhatta College’s cut-off has not yet been approved by Delhi University. After Psychology, the highest cut-off in the college is 98% for both Economics and B Com (Hons). While the Economics percentage remains the same, the B Com (Hons) cut-off was 97.5% last year.
There has been a jump of two percentage points in the cut-off from 95% to 97% for BA (Honours) Psychology, from 93% to 95% for BA (Honours) History.
At CVS, the highest cut-off is for Economics and B Com (Hons) at 97%. This is only a marginal increase from last year when the cut-off was 96.5%. The History cut-off has also increased by 0.5 percentage points from last year and is now at 92.5%. English remains at the same cut-off as last year — 96.5%. However, the Computer Science cut-off has seen a significant rise from 92.5% last year to 94% last year.
