Ambedkar University Delhi’s second cutoff list released on Monday saw a substantial dip from the first list, with cutoff for courses like History, Mathematics and Sociology dropping by 10 per cent, 7 per cent and 7 per cent respectively even for NCT students.
However, the biggest dips are in the cutoffs of SC students, both within and outside NCT, with the largest drop (15 per cent) in History for non-NCT students. The first list had seen the largest jumps in the cutoffs for SC and ST candidates.
The largest percentage drop (10 per cent) for the ST category is in Sociology and Social Science and Humanities. Seats have filled up completely only for the SC category in two courses — for NCT students in Psychology and non-NCT students in Economics.
The cutoff for History has dipped by 10 per cent for all categories within NCT, except for the ST category for which the cutoff still remains 45 per cent for Arts students, and 49 per cent and 50 per cent for Science and Commerce students respectively. The cutoff for general category Arts students within and outside NCT is now 77 per cent and 84 per cent respectively.
Courses like Maths and Sociology have seen a dip of7 per cent for general category NCT students with the cutoffs now at 78 per cent and 83 per cent respectively for Arts students. Even Social Science and Humanities have seen a dip of5 per cent for NCT candidates from 90 per cent to 85 per cent now for Arts students.
The cutoff for Economics and English has seen a dip of 3 per cent for NCT students. For non-NCT students, the cutoff has only dipped by 1 per cent in Economics.
However, some courses have been more conservative in reducing their cutoff due to the popularity of the programme. Psychology cutoffs have dropped by only 1.5 per cent for general and OBC category within NCT and 2 per cent for general category outside NCT. However, it too has reduced the cutoff by 10 per cent for SCs within NCT.
Admissions on the basis of the second cutoff will be held from July 14 to 16. The university will release the third list on July 17, if needed.
