DU Cut off 2020 would see a sharp rise due to the CBSE class 12th have shown excellent results. As compared to last year, a record number of students passed this year from CBSE board. Also, almost double the students have secured 95% marks in their board examination.
The outcomes of the CBSE (central board of secondary education) class 12 board examination has been outstanding this year. The number of students attaining 90 percent and above marks (but less than 95 percent) was also very high.
An alternate assessment scheme developed by the (CBSE) is believed to have dominated to an all-time high pass percentage of the students this year.
Marks were granted to the students based on their scores in the best performing subjects under the technique which had the approval of the Supreme Court as the Board had to eliminate some of the papers due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Of the almost 12 lakh students who appeared for the exams in February-March, over 10.59 lakh were announced as passed. This took the overall pass percentage of the students up to 88.78 percent, 5.38% higher than that of the last year.
The number of students achieving 95% and above climbed up to reach 38,686 from 17,690 last year, evaluating an increase by a whopping 118.68 percent. Over 1.57 lakh pupils secured 90 percent and above marks but less than 95 percent, showing an increase of 67.48 percent. Last year, a total of 94,299 students had attained the 90 percent mark.
The board examination results have provoked cheers to those securing high scores. But what will be its consequence on admissions in Delhi University? Will this also shoot up the cut of this year?
With 91 Colleges, 16 Faculties, 86 Departments, 20 Centres, and 3 Institute under it, Delhi University, which was granted the Institute of Eminence tag last year, has always persisted the prime choice of students for higher education in the nation.
While the total number of ruled seats for undergraduate programs in DU is almost 70,000, over 2.45 lakh students have enrolled with Delhi University for admission as on Wednesday. What will be the admission procedure this time?
There would be much hue and cry as the cut off will certainly be higher this time, at least in the early three lists, Deshbandhu College Principal Rajiv Aggarwal told Outlook. Colleges will have to take extra safety as even minute percentage points will be crucial.
Cut off will indeed be higher by at least 1 percent this year. Another justification for a higher cut off could be the chance of a large piece of students wanting to study in DU colleges instead of going abroad for higher education in view of the Covid-19 pandemic, says SGTB Khalsa College Principal Jaswinder Singh.
Some of the staff members in the university though feel that many students would like to take admission in their home state due to the Covid-19 pandemic. But that is ambiguous, as Agarwal points out: It could be overturned also because the admission process is entirely online and there are also indications of the university handing out guidelines for holding online classes till the time situation rectifies.
The admission headquarters of DU feels it is too early to discuss cut off marks right now. I believe we will have to stay for some time for the adequate calculation to be done because students are yet to revise their marks. Registration practice is still on, we will have to wait till it’s over, says Shobha Bagai, Dean Admission Branch.
The closing date for enrollment in DU is July 18 and there will really be more applications by then. All those high scorers will be wishing they get a seat in their favorite college.
