The CBSE and ISC results for Class 12 are expected to come out soon and so are the much dreaded Delhi University cut-offs. Shortly after the official website of CBSE www.cbseresults.nic.in announces the results, there will be a surge of announcements from colleges in Delhi University which depend majorly on the results of the students.
The overall aggregate is out of five subjects but most colleges consider the best of four subjects. Colleges release a required percentage and minimum marks based on a student’s score in CBSE. The students who fulfill the criteria can apply in the subsequent days.
The CBSE results have shown students scoring better with every passing year due to which the cut-offs for Science students have increased specifically since they have an option to opt for Humanities and Commerce as well. The fact that the percentages are increasing every year with limited seats in colleges like Lady Shri Ram, Shri Ram College of Commerce, Hindu and St Stephens might be disappointing news for many students.
A separate cut off is announced for students belonging to Other Backward Classes (OBC) and Scheduled Castes (SC), based on the reservation guidelines set up by the Government of India.
Universities are supposed to reserve a percentage of seats specifically for CBSE students, which a few adhere to while the others do not because of the uncertainty of the quota.
Students are also admitted in DU colleges based solely on their performance in extra-curricular activities and sports. The interested and eligible students have to apply separately to each college by giving an audition/performance.
Here’s hoping that luck turns in the students’ favour this year and their CBSE score helps them get a course of their choice
