New Rule to Calculate “Best of Four” for B. Com (H) & B. Com (Prog.)


Table of Contents

The rule for calculating marks for taking admission in B.Com(H) and B Com(Program) has been changed. University has declared a new method to calculate it. Subjects have been divided into 3 categories: C1, C2 and Others.

  • The category C1 has 2 parts in which 1st part is for languages which consist of Hindi and English.

  • 2nd Part has core Subjects : Mathematics, Accountancy, Business Studies/Commerce Economics.

Cutoffs are calculated based on the marks in one Language subject from 1st Part of Category 1 and 3 core subjects from part 2 of category 1.

“Students takes one language from C1 and three subjects from C1’s core subjects to calculate their ‘Best of Four’, said officials. Now the Category 2 has twenty other subjects. But the point to be noted is if you add a subject from category 2 other than any core subjects than 1% will be deducted from the aggregate percentage.

” Suppose you take one language and two subjects from Core subjects and one subject from C2 category then 1% will be deducted. For every subject you add from Category 2, 1% will be deducted from your aggregate percentage.” officials said.

Lets make it more simple:


  • One language + 3 core subjects = No deduction.

  • One language + 2 core subjects + 1 subject from C2 = 1% deduction ( deduction of 1% on every subject added from Category 2)

  • One language + 2 core subject + 1 Subject other than category 1 or  2 = Deduction of 2.5% in aggregate percentage.

(2.5 % will be deducted from aggregate percentage on adding each paper other than C1 & C 2.)

List of Subjects Category wise:


Language: English , Hindi

Core Subjects: Accountancy, Mathematics, Business Studies/Commerce, Economics

Category 2

Botany, Biology/Biotechnology, Business Mathematics, Computer Science, Informatic Practices, Geography, Geology, History, Home Science, Legal Studies, Philosophy, Physics, Political Science, Psychology, Sociology, Statistics, Statistics, Zoology
