According to college officials, this year even for humanities students the cutoffs will remain high. As per sources, is likely to be above 98%.
The college sets a precedent for the cutoff lists in other DU colleges.
Students qualifying the cutoffs are called for interviews — 85% marks is allotted for Class XII marks scored by the student and 15% for interview. Earlier, entrance tests were also held. But this year due to Covid-19, the entrance test has been done away with. Interviews will also be held online.
The college reserves 50% of its seats for Christian students and 25% grace in the cutoff is given to Christian students of the Church of North India (CNI).
A senior faculty member pointed out, “The overall quality of campus life will be severely affected because of the differences in merit leading to segregation of the purely merit-based general category students from others with very low marks, who are granted admission only because of the compulsions to fill in the reserved seats. This was not the case a few years ago.”
