After securing 86% in the Nagaland Board exams, Noor Ahmed, a native of Assam who had studied in Dimapur, had hoped to secure admission in BCom (H) in a top-rated college with the help of the newly-introduced EWS quota. But due to the narrow margin between the EWS and general categories in the cutoff list, he could only secure a seat in PGDAV College (evening). The cutoffs for the EWS category are higher than OBC category and thus there is an opportunity for such students to get better college in subsequent cutoff lists.
A student named Ajay Oli who studied in a Delhi government school and scored 84% had a similar complaint regarding the higher cut offs of EWS than the OBC category. Since relaxation given is only 1 %, he had to settle for an evening college but was expecting a morning college.
The difference between EWS and general categories for BA Political Science (H) is a meagre 0.25% at KMC and the cut off for EWS is 95.75%.
Due to the difficulty in prediction of the students in the reserved category, the cutoff margin is kept small. DU had received 9,091 applications from the EWS category this year.
