Students breathe a sigh of relief the moment board exams are over. But after that, struggle for college starts. College admissions can be very stressful for both students and their parents. There is no doubt in that almost every student wants to pursue their higher education from Delhi University. DU is certainly one of the best universities in India and provides ample opportunities for all aspirants.
University of Delhi is the most preferred university by students every year. In most courses, admissions are given on merit basis not on the basis of personal interviews, essays and general profiles of students.
A student or any average performer who’s trying hard to get admissions, at some point, becomes curious and puzzled about why are the Delhi University cutoffs so high? Here’s the answer.
Currently, 2.5 lakh students have applied for around 54,000 seats across all the colleges affiliated to the Delhi University for an undergraduate degree alone. The high number of applicants is the fundamental reason behind the high DU cutoffs. The harsh truth is: only 21% of the candidates who have applied will get a seat. In all probability, students with average marks also must have applied for this year’s qualifying exam.
Stop Blaming DU For Its High Cut-Offs. It’s Not Their Fault. Here’s The Problem
DU offers god courses at very low fee therefore the students who belongs to average family prefer DU over any private engineering colleges which cost about 2 lacs per annum. ( science stream students)
The colleges under DU have a limited number of seats for their various courses. The high cut-offs are indicative of the fact that more and more students have achieved that percentage. These colleges always fill their seats even with the high cut-offs. They can’t help but raise their cut-offs to keep the quality of students in check. It’s a problem with the ISC, CBSE and state boards who are distributing marks like candies.
In the other boards also, kids are getting higher and higher percentages with every passing year.
Here is the problem explained with an example
Take an example. You have arranged a lunch for 10 people at your home but you have no idea about how many people might turn up! Chances are that exactly 10 people turn up. Chances are 30 turn up(the no. Of people you’ve originally invited+their friends/relatives). That won’t a desirable situation. Right?
Same is the scenario with DU. They have a limited no. Of seats. And the demanders of those seats are more.
