Changing streams: Would cut-off change?
Till last year, students who change their streams to apply for the BA programme used to face a deduction of five per cent. This year, the admission committee has asked colleges to not make the deduction. “The rule was based on the belief that science students score more than humanities and would take a major chunk of seats in BA programmes which are meant for humanities students. However, now that all studies are going interdisciplinary, the rule does not hold any ground. We also wish to make the entire admission process smooth. Most of the colleges have agreed to this as well,” dean admissions Shobha Bagai had said in a media briefing.
Course-specific cut-offs can differ as in some courses, one or two subjects are mandatory.
