The Delhi University released its second cut-off list on Saturday with admissions to many courses being closed and some programs seeing a minor decline in the score required for admission. Amid all this, what raised concerns for the colleges affiliated to the varsity was a new guideline of the university for students from the Bihar Board.
The circular sent by the university earlier stated that 50 marks Hindi paper from Bihar Board will not be considered for calculation of the best of four. As per the TOI report, an admission convener of one of the colleges explained, “Bihar School Education Board gives 50 full marks for English and Hindi. Earlier, we used to calculate on a pro-rata basis and admit students for Hindi (H). Now with this guideline, the colleges are in a fix as some admissions under the first may have been approved according to the earlier followed guideline.”
Lady Shri Ram College for Women had pegged 100 percent score for three courses — BA (Honours) Psychology, BA (Honours) Political Science, and BA (Honours) Economics. However, seats are available under BA (Honours) Economics and B Com (Honours) in the college.
Apart from this, Ramanujan college has approved 200 admissions as against 50 withdrawals. Aryabhatta College on the other hand approved 190 admissions against 40 withdrawals. A total of 994 admissions have been completed at Hindu College.
