In highly competitive admissions to Delhi University’s BA (Honours) Psychology programme, the cut-off has soared as high as 98.75 per cent in Lady Shri Ram College for Women.
The course, which had seen the sixth highest number of applicants — 1,12,312 — is offered in only 11 colleges, and there are all of 555 seats up for grabs across them. At 98.75 per cent, the course has registered the second highest cut-off across all courses, on a par with Shri Ram College of Commerce’s cut-off for its coveted BA (Honours) Economics programme.
Notably, the cut-off does not dip below 95 per cent in any of the 11 colleges where the course is offered — with Aryabhatta College registering the lowest cut-off at that figure. The course is offered in only three co-ed colleges — Zakir Hussain College, Keshav Mahavidyalaya and Aryabhatta College. Of these, the highest cut-off is at Keshav Mahavidyalaya at 97 per cent.

Cut-offs also remain high for the BA (Honours) Journalism programme, which has the highest applicants to seats ratio across all courses, with 1,12,233 applicants vying for 306 seats across 7 colleges.
The highest cut-off for the course is 98.5 per cent at Delhi College of Arts and Commerce, same as last year. However, the lowest cut-off for the course has risen from 92 per cent to 94 per cent at Bharati College.
The second highest applicants to seats ratio was for BA (Honours) Sociology, with 1,11,988 applicants for 483 seats in 10 colleges.
However, the cut-offs have not rocketed as high as in the case of some other colleges, with both LSR and Hindu College setting it at 97 per cent. Both these colleges have raised their cut-off in the course from last year — by 1 percentage point and 1.75 percentage points respectively.
