New Delhi: Continuing its trend of setting high cut-offs, Delhi University released its first cut-off list on 27 June. As expected, the cut-off was set extremely high. Many students are now looking forward to the second cut off list, as the first did not offer much help.

According to some college authorities, the cut-off had to be inflated to avoid the rush for admission in the first list since a large number of students scored in the 90s. “The results were exceptionally good this year. Also, we have received so many applications that it was necessary to set the bar high in the first cut-off,” said Abhay Kumar, Pol. Science Professor at SRCC.

However, students too were not much disappointed. “I have secured 95.4 percent in my class XII boards. And I want to get into SRCC. But the college has set the first cut-off at 97 percent. I already knew this would happen as everybody has secured quite well in their XII boards. But I am sure of clearing the second cut-off,” said Nimita Gupta, a Commerce aspirant.

Similarly Medha Sharma who secured 91 percent in her class XII boards is eager for the second cut off list to come out. “I am happy with my percentage and I am quite positive of getting into a nice college with the second cut-off. I am not really disheartened by the first list, as I expected it to be sky-rocketing high,” Medha said.

The second cut-off will be announced on 1st July.
