The students who have just completed the journey of their school life are waiting for the DU cut-offs for the academic session 2014-2015 with accelerated heartbeats. The admission process has started from 2nd June and the last date for submitting the applications is 16th June. Five cut-offs will be displayed by 77 colleges affiliated by the Delhi University. The first cut-off will be displayed on 24th June.
This year 2,91,414 candidates registered for class 12th CBSE Board exam which is 30,000 more than last year. The 95% club has grown bigger adding 2975 students all over the country. Also the 95% plus club has climbed to 8971 as compared to 5996 last year, thus DU cut-offs are likely to soar. The Delhi based Sarthak Aggarwal scored astounding 99.6%. Moreover the passing percentage has gone up to 82.66% which is 0.56% more than the preceding year, with girls outperforming boys yet again. All these indicate that this time it would be tougher to get into the best colleges of the Delhi University. Though colleges refuse to give specific figures, it is expected that there would be a 2% rise for the science courses. Whereas, the humanities and commerce courses are likely to face a jump that may range from 0.5% to 2%. Colleges would be cautious and conservative for the first cut-off but in the subsequent lists, cut-offs are likely to normalize.
This year 12,778 students have scored more than 90%. The number of merit certificates has crossed 10,000. In all 12,614 merit certificates are being issued with 1,697 for English, followed by 1,069 in mathematics. Interestingly, this time science students have got more merit certificates. In all 2,962 students will get merit certificates for physics, chemistry, mathematics and biology, making it more taxing for science students to get into DU. The commerce students will also face a harder competition as this year 254 students have got merit certificates in accountancy and 321 in business studies.
