Delhi University releases first cut-off list 2013 today

June 27 (): Delhi University has released its first cut-off list today, 27th June for admission to its various four-year undergraduate programs.

The Delhi University(DU) introduced the four-year undergraduate programme this academic session. Under the new programme, students will be required to study 11 foundation courses in the first two years, and those seeking vocational education will take the courses along with those looking to pursue academic disciplines.

Over 2.5 lakh applications have been accepted this year by the Delhi University.

As anticipated and in view of the rise in the number of applicants received this year, the cut-offs also have seen a staggering rise than last year. The rise in the number of high scorers in Class XII  is also another reason for the staggering  cut-offs of Delhi University.

Now, for a look at the sky-high cut-off percentages set by  various colleges for diverse disciplines:

Cut-off percentages for –

Science courses in all colleges of DU  is 95 per cent

Hindu College

Those scoring above 99.75 per cent could only expect to get seats, according to the first cut-off list. Jai Prakash, Principal of Bhaskarayacharya College told TOI that the cut-off has been kept high as the number of seats available for the course is just 46 and that keeping a low cut-off percentage  would not be viable for them. 

Maths and Physics have been found to be the most popular among Science courses. Among the B Tech courses to be offered from this year, Computer Science and Electronics saw high cut-offs considering their popularity among the applicants.
