New Delhi: The mission admission for Delhi University seems impossible for the pass outs. The initiation of grading system has become nightmare for the newly arrived cubs.

With the commencement of the result-announcing season, the battle for college admissions is on. Leading the list of the best varsities in India, Delhi University (DU) strewn across the city, is geared up for the admission battle.

The dance on the grading calypso in the summer of 2012 will be a tough nut to crack.

The opportunity to get an admission into the prestigious Delhi University seems to be moving away as the cut-offs may hold many by surprise.

With the introduction of the grading system, the last year cut-offs were blown over the limit of 100 percent for B. Com in Sri Ram College of Commerce. The more than 1000 centurions in Mathematics this year are set to fuel the cut-offs in Economics as well as Science subjects. 

The cut-offs are expected to touch a new high this year due to the sky-rocketing percentages of students in Class-XII. The neck-and-neck competition is visible from the fact that more than twice the number of applications have been received for just 54,000 seats.

The cut-offs have a tendency to be highest in B. Com with Economics, English racking among the other expensive subjects.

While Psychology (Honours) is emerging as a hot favourite subject for those opting for Humanitarian stream, Geography, History and Political Science are not far behind in demand for takers. However, more and more students are now opting for semi-professional or vocational courses but not less than one lakh students will have to search for other options other than Delhi University.

It is to be noted, the students will not face an end of the road as it is advisable to apply for equally prestigious central universities like Jamia Millia Islamia and IndraPrastha University offering a very wide number of courses.

They can also get themselves enrolled for correspondence courses being offered by the Delhi University, a good option for the ones looking for a parallel course or option but eager to pursue graduation.
