Anju Srivastava, the principal of Hindu College stated that the cut-off will be kept close to 100 percent. In the interview, she added that the college atmosphere might be lost due to covid and online classes. But, students will still get a taste of the various college activities, societies, and more. Thus, it is sure that apart from teaching and learning, even society activities, fests, etc have transitioned to online platforms.

Why is Hindu College keeping a high cut-off?
As per the principal, a discussion on cut-offs and admission criteria is yet to be done. But, they have learned that several students have scored between 95 and 99 percent this time. Considering that, the Hindu College has very limited seats to offer. Thus, the general understanding is that cut-offs need to be kept high. Also, in DU a cut-off close to 100 or even 100 is not new. Last year, LSR kept a cut-off of 100 percent. Even the Hindu college kept the highest cut-off at 99.50 percent.
The principal hopes that the cut-off will reduce in the subsequent lists after the first list. Thus, this would hopefully be able to meet the expectations and hopes of many aspiring students.
How will online learning proceed at Hindu College?
All the DU colleges are successfully transitioning to digital learning and teaching. Also, it required a lot of adaptation from the teacher’s side, some of which were more resilient. But, now the online classes are getting organized. With the help from the varsity’s MS Team and the influx of technology, situations are getting better.
The Hindu College is also paying due attention to the student’s mental health. Hence, they often organize classroom sessions with counselors for assistance. During such harsh times, cases of intense trauma, anxiety, and depression are increasing. Thus, a counseling body was necessary.
