The cut-offs of most courses in Stephen’s have registered an increase between 0.5 to 2 per cent,with Philosophy (Hons) for Science students climbing a stiff 7 percentage points.

Among popular subjects,English (Hons) jumped from 97 per cent in 2011 for Commerce students to 98 per cent this session. For Humanities and Science students,the cut-offs this year are 95.25 and 96,respectively.

For Humanities students,Economic cut-offs rose by 0.75 percentage points; from 96 last year to 96.75. For Science students,the cut-off for Economics this year is 96.75 per cent.

Sciences and Mathematics also saw a rise in cut-offs.

The college has released separate cut-offs for SC,ST,disabled and Christian students.

The college cutoffs were decided by departments concerned,based on a close scrutiny of application forms,said Dr Karen Gabriel,media coordinator.

“The rise in cut-offs of subjects depends on the kind of applications received. Cut-offs are not decided arbitrarily,but based on the screening of applications received from different streams. This is the reason why Stephen’s does not come out with a second or third list,” she said.

The college will releases its interview list on June 22. The college received about 23,000 applications this year for about 400 under-graduate seats on offer.
