The CBSE and ISC results for Class 12 are expected to come out soon and so is the much dreaded Delhi University cut-off. Shortly after the official website of CBSE inannounces the results, there will be a splurge 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 and students who fulfill the criteria can apply in the subsequent days.
Students have been scoring even better with every passing year due to which the cut-offs for specifically Science students have increased since they have an option to opt for humanities and commerce as well. The fact that 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.
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.
