It has been proved by the numbers revealed by DU Staff after online registration that closed at 5 pm on Tuesday evening that the Cut-off marks for admission to Delhi University will remain high this year too and admission will still be difficult for average students.

On one hand The total number of registrations fell by 29,000 as compared to previous year because of the restriction that Delhi University penned down against multiple applications. And Unlike previous years, DU allowed only one application per candidate for 2017 with providing the provision and surety  that applications would be remaining open to editing during the duration of the admission process.

But on the other hand, it is a matter of luck and survival as more than 2 lakh students are fighting for 56,000 seats, and with over a lakh each applying for BA and BCom Degrees. The most shocking figures are in Psychology (honours) in which each aspirant of the psychology (honours) will clash with 220 others aspirants to grab one of the 323 seats on offer at the 7 DU colleges.

Although Mathematics (honours) seemed to be hopeful for students, with 81 competing for every of the 926 seats and nearly 99,000 students want to get into political science (H). The competition in the science field that is in chemistry (H) and physics (H) is also neck to neck with 78 and 63 candidates respectively competing for single seat. Among the other courses except Mathematics, Psychology, English and Political Science with seat-to-seat applicant ratio of 40 are only economics (H) and history (H).

These figures prove that the cut-off marks will remain genuinely high in 2017.

The cut-off for admission to psychology (H) is most likely to remain above 96% - “One should not be surprised if it touches an all-time high because a majority of aspirants have highscoring English as mandatory subject and economics as an elective in Class XII,“ quoted by a faculty member of Lady Shri Ram College of Commerce.
