DU Cut-off Game

Delhi University (DU) will announce its first cut-off list for admission to various undergraduate courses today. Have you ever wondered the factors  that influence colleges to decide on cut-offs? Most students think that colleges want brilliant students only, hence, they decide on a very high-cut off and anyone below that percentage would not gain entry in to Delhi University. But the cut-off game works on the demand-supply ratio. More the number of applications for a particular course in a particular college would result in soaring cut-off for admission to that course. S K Vij, dean, students’ welfare, DU, feels students with average percentage should not panic. If students analyse carefully, leaving most popular colleges and most popular courses, the cut-off is generally between 80 to 60%. 

This year, the university has received 1,29,038 forms for its undergraduate admissions as against 92,000 in 2008. After the university collects the data of students from the OMR forms, it sends the CDs to the individual colleges. The CDs contain details on the number of students applying for a particular course. The colleges add the central data with that of the data collected by selling its own individual forms. Then colleges calculate the total number of students who have applied for a particular course. “Colleges have to consider the limited number of seats they have for courses. Therefore, they calculate prior to declaring the cut-off the number of students who might come for admission,” says Gurpreet Singh Tuteja, deputy dean, students’ welfare. “Generally top colleges know that maximum students would be drawn to their college, hence, the margin between the number of students falling under a particular cut-off and the number of seats is very less,” he says. 

P C Jain, principal, SRCC, while explaining the selection process to one of the most sought-after courses — BCom (Hons) in SRCC, says, “We divide our students in A,B,C and D category for the course. Students having accounts, economics, BSc, mathematics with one language are kept under category ‘A.’ Category B students are those with three subjects out of the four in category ‘A’ plus a language. Category ‘C’ students have two of these compulsory subjects and ‘D’ with only one of these subjects. For first cut-off list students’ percentage is calculated based on these subjects. Then we see how many students we could accommodate with a particular cut-off. We narrow down on the final cut-off after we know the number of students above and on par with that cut-off is proportionate to the number of seats available in the college.” After the cut-off is declared a college cannot deny admission to any student who is within that cut-off percentage, for the next three days. 

Colleges are not secretive about disclosing their cut-offs to each other. In fact, there is an unspoken understanding among colleges about which college and course would draw maximum students. “Colleges talk among themselves about the percentage. If the most popular college has kept 90% as the cut-off for a subject, the second most popular college would reduce the percentage by .5% or so as the college knows it would attract all those who missed their admission by a whisker. And the trail follows,” says Tuteja. 

If BCom, English, Economics record high cut-offs there are subjects like core sciences for which the cut-off has actually dipped over the years, Tuteja observed. He predicts that since St Stephen’s College has increased its cut-off, other colleges would have no choice but to decide on high cut-offs too. Cut-offs for every course have registered hikes, with the highest leap of 9 percentage points in the BA programme, where the minimum required marks for science students rose from 85% in 2008 to 94% this year. For humanities students, too, the going will be just as tough, with the cut-off rising from 79% to 88%. 

For commerce students, the increase was a moderate 5% for BA but overall the race will be the toughest for them. In three subjects — English (Hons), History (Hons) and Economics (Hons) — students with a commerce background will need at least 97% to get into arguably the country’s most prestigious college. In fact, the cut-off hovers between 94% and 97% for commerce students in 11 of the 12 programmes.
