The first cut-off list for Delhi University's undergraduate courses has yet again 'sky-rocketed' with two colleges this time setting the threshold at 100 percent for admission to the B.Sc (Computer Science) course.

Although only the college of Vocational Studies and Indraprastha College for Women have announced 100 percent cut-off for the first list, the required percentage is coming to beyond 100 for a few courses and categories in other colleges as well after taking into account certain 'hidden, additional criterion'.

For example, a candidate without Economics in Std XII needs to have scored 100.75 percent in the best-of-four subjects to secure a seat in BA Economics at Shri Ram College of Commerce or Hans Raj.

Similarly, at Lady Shri Ram College, an aspirant needs to have an aggregate score of 100.5 percent to get into the Psychology Honours course.

Students seeking a seat in the Economics honours course at SRCC, Hindu, Hans Raj, Kirori Mal, Ramjas, LSR and Miranda House would also need 100 percent and above marks in their best-of-four if they did not study the subject in Std XII.

While the varsity has done away with stream-wise cut-offs from this academic session, stream change students applying for B.Com will attract a disadvantage of 2.5 percent.

Hence, those with stream change clause applying for B.Com honours at LSR and Ramjas, Political Science in Hindu, Kirori Mal and LSR and History in Hindu, too, would need 100 percent and above marks, thanks to the 2.5 percent penalty.
