Delhi University (DU) admission 2020 cut-offs are expected to release from October-mid. Within a day or two the detailed schedule for the same will be released at the official website: du.ac.in. Cut-offs dates for undergraduate, postgraduate, and PhD level courses along with document verification dates will be mentioned in the list.
DU cut-offs are decided based on the best of four formulae, which means the highest marks obtained in the four subjects in class XII board exams will be calculated for cut-off. The rule of cut-off changes per subject but major it includes one language subject and one or two primary subjects adopted as majors in the course opted for. For subject-specific cut-off criteria, students will have to refer to the official brochure.
Last week St Stephen’s College released its cut-off, which was higher than that of the previous year. Following the trend of St Stephen where the highest cut-off was for BA (Hon) Economics at 99.25 percent. This indicates that the cut-offs at other colleges are also expected to go higher than the last year.
Further, the number of applications for undergraduate, postgraduate, and PhD/MPhil courses has seen a hike. A total of 3,53,919 students had applied for 64,000 undergraduate seats across DU. This is the highest in the past three years.
This year, DU has introduced major changes in its admission process. The university has decided to withdraw the policy of deducting 5 percent marks for students who changed their stream to apply for BA courses. Further, DU has made a single form application this year; which means every student who registers with the university will be considered for all courses and colleges, based on their merit.
