What Best Of Four have you got?

Best Four Subjects Selection
Written by Editor DUKhabar

Again it is the admission season all around. On one hand the scorching heat of the sun which is at peak and on the other the passion and the anxieties of the students to get admission into the colleges is at par. Besides engineering and medical entrances, that one thing which is most talked about in our nation during this time every year is the admission procedure of the University of Delhi. Each and every year the cut- offs at the University of Delhi make it to the headlines and quiet often to the breaking news.

Like every year this year also there have been changes made for the procedure of admissions in the University. It has been made very clear that no entrance test shall be conducted on the part of the University for non- professional courses. The main aim over here was to gather attention towards the final decisive statement regarding the CATE for pursuing majors in English. This year onwards CATE has permanently been scrapped.

The year before there were many colleges who had varying per-requisites for admission when it came to the best of four aggregate. This year everything has been centralized. The university has mentioned the method in which the best of four aggregate will be considered during the admissions. The official website of the University of Delhi lists the combination of subjects which are required to make the best of four aggregate.

Procedure for calculation of ‘Best of Four’ subjects percentage:-
I. One Language (Core/Elective/Functional)

II. Subject in which admission is sought (Discipline I)
III. Any two other academic/elective  subjects

The university further clarifies the ambiguities hidden behind the rule mentioned above as follows:

  • If a candidate has not studied the subject in which he/she is seeking admission in the Discipline I, then a disadvantage of 2% may be imposed on the calculated Best of Four percentage.
  • The colleges will have to consider only the academic/elective subject for calculation of Best of Four percentage if the candidate has studied at least four academic/elective subjects or one language and three academic/elective subjects.
  • In case a candidate has not studied three academic/elective subjects, then a disadvantage of 10% of the maximum marks may be levied on each such non-elective subject(s) to be included for the calculation of Best of Four percentage.
  • In case a candidate has studied three academic/elective subjects but wishes to include the percentage of non-elective subject(s) for the calculation of Best of Four, then a disadvantage of 10% of the maximum marks may be levied on each such non-elective subject(s) to be included for the calculation of Best of Four percentage.   
  • All the academic/elective subjects should have 70% component of theory exams (theory exam does not include internal assessment/continuous evaluation etc.). Otherwise these will be treated as non-elective subject.
  • In case a candidate has studied both elective and core in any languages, then core language will be treated as language, while elective language can be considered as academic/elective subject. 
  • For admission to Honours in any language course, advantage of 2% in the Best of Four percentage may be given to those candidates who have studied the elective language.2% disadvantage in the Best of Four percentage may be given to those who have studied functional language only. In case, a candidate has not studied the language at qualifying exam and is seeking admission in Honours in that language, he/she may be given a disadvantage of 5% in Best of Four percentage. However, for admission to Honours in English and Hindi, the candidate must have studied the respective language and has to be included for calculation of Best of Four percentage.
  • The candidates must have studied mathematics at the qualifying exam for admission to Honours in Economics.
  • The Basis of Selection for Mathematical Sciences/Science courses remains unchanged. However the subjects to be included for Basis of Selection (PCM/PCB/PCMB) must have at least 70% component of theory exams (theory exam does not include internal assessment/continuous evaluation etc.) in the qualifying exam otherwise a disadvantage of 10% of the maximum marks may be levied on each such subject.

Examples for calculation of ‘Best of Four percentage’ are given below.

 

Example 1:
If a candidate is seeking admission in Honours in Commerce and Studied:  Accounts (90), Business Studies (92), English (88) and Economics (94). Then his total marks are 90+92+88+94=364 and effective percentage  is 91%
Example 2:
If a candidate is seeking admission in Honours in Commerce and Studied: Physics (96), Chemistry (92), English (90) and Mathematics (94). Then his total marks are 96+92+90+94=372 and Percentage 93%. But Effective Percentage is 93-2 = 91%
Example 3:
If a candidate is seeking admission in Honours in Commerce and Studied: Accounts (88), Entrepreneurship (92), English (90) and Web Designing (94). Then, his total marks are 88+92+90+96=366, Percentage is 91.5%. But Effective marks are 88+82(92-10)+90+84(94-10)=344 and effective Percentage is 86%.
Example 4:
If a candidate is seeking admission in Honours in English and Studied:  Accounts (90), Business Studies (92), English (88) and Home Science (94). Then total marks are 90+92+88+94=364, and Percentage is 91%. But effective marks are  90+92+88+84(94-10) = 354 and effective Percentage is 88.5%.
