In continuance of last year’s trend, the third and final cut-off list for degree colleges affiliated to Mumbai University has left many seeking admission to popular colleges in the city worried. The cut-offs for traditional courses such as BCom and BA as well as for self-financed courses (Bachelor of Financial Markets, Bachelor of Accounting and Finance, Bachelor in Mass Media, Bachelor in Management Studies, Bachelor in Banking and Insurance, etc) remained in the 90s. The cut-offs continued to dip for Bsc though.
At St Xavier’s College, there was no third list for BA and BSc courses. “While the trend remains the same as last year, the cut-offs for BSc has dipped in most colleges. Since the courses in general have increased, the interest towards pure sciences has become less,” said principal Rajendra Shinde.
At Ruia College, there was no third list for BA in open category. “This is because we have limited seats. Only some seats in the reserved category have remained due to less number of applications. We keep having lists for self-financed courses as students keep withdrawing admissions for choice of colleges and courses,” said principal Anushree Lokur.
