The University of Delhi will release its first cut-off list for admissions to undergraduate courses 2017 on Friday, June 23. Previously scheduled to release on June 20, the cut off will be announced three days later at du.ac.in, according to a notice by the university.
There is speculation over how much the cut off for 2017 will be and some believe that they will increase as compared to the previous years’ cut off. This will be partially influenced by the marks moderation policy — which the CBSE did not manage to scrap in the last minute— and the previous years’ cut off which have been on the rise.
The university has also introduced entrance examinations for up to nine courses including BA (Hons) Business Economics, Bachelor of Management Studies (BMS), Bachelor of Business Administration (Financial Investment Analysis) (BBA (FIA), BA (Hons) Humanities and Social Sciences, B Tech (Information Technology and Mathematical Innovation), Bachelor of Elementary Education, BSc Physical Education, Health Education and Sports, BA (Hons) Multimedia and Mass Communication and BA (Hons) Music.
