Everybody wants to get admission into Delhi University but hey, this year the cut-off is the most absurd one! In the first list announced on Wednesday, the eligibility bar set for certain categories of students has gone beyond 100%, reports Times of India.
For instance, a candidate without Economics in class XII would need to have scored 100.75% in the best-of-four (BO4) subjects to secure a seat in 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% to get into the Psychology (H) course.
Such absurdity is not restricted to Economics alone. Stream change students applying for BCom (H) in LSR and Ramjas, Political Science in Hindu, Kirori Mal and LSR, and History in Hindu too would need 100% and above marks, thanks to 2.5 percentage points penalty.
That’s not all. Cutoffs reached 100% for BSc (H) Computer Science at the College of Vocational Studies (95-100%) and at IP College (97-100%), the perfect score being demanded of science students who did not have computer science at the plus-two level.
Justifying the cutoffs, Kanika K Ahuja, LSR’s media coordinator and psychology teacher, said 39 applicants who had Psychology in school had secured 98% or above. The number was far greater than seats offered for the course.
