St Stephen’s College of Delhi University has published its first cut-off for admission to Undergraduate courses. The first cutoff list itself has set the bar too high as the minimum percentage expected to take admissions at St Stephens College in most of the courses is more than 98 percent.
The first cutoff for admissions to BA (Hons.) Economics strikes at 99.5% for the general category. Whereas for the B.A. program, students are expected to have achieved 99% for both sciences as well as commerce stream. For History (program), the college cut-off is at 99%. The cut-off for BA(Hons) Philosophy is at 98% for commerce.
The Stephens college first cutoff for BSc Physics (Hons) strikes at 97.66% while the cut-off for BSc(Hons) Chemistry stands at 96.67%. Last year, the cut-offs for BSc Physics (Hons) and BSc Chemistry (Hons) were the same respectively.
The cut-off for BSc(Hons) Mathematics strikes at 98% for commerce and science students and 96.5% for humanities stream candidates.
It is noteworthy that the cutoffs published by St Stephens College are to be calculated based on the best four subject marks achieved in class 12 board exams. The best four formula makes it compulsory to include one of the core subjects and one language subject.
While the other two subjects can be selected based on the highest marks obtained in class 12 board exams. For every subject, the admission criteria can be changed.
Candidates need to read the prospectus carefully before applying for admission to UG courses. Students whose marks match the published cutoffs will have to undergo a process for the evaluation of documents.
