It has become a series of every year that there is a ruckus about admission to Delhi University. Then the political tug-of-war and rhetoric between the Center and the Delhi government begin. This time it has also happened. Admission in most subjects in university-affiliated colleges is based on the results of class XII. Colleges issue a cut-off list to sort out the crowds of students due to the low number of seats in which children with maximum percentage points are called for admission.
Last year, a college kept its cut-off hundred percent. This year some more colleges have released a hundred percent. It is true that for two-three years, some students have been getting a hundred percent marks in the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) examination, but the irony is that on this basis the scale of admission should be kept 100 percent. Although marks percentage is reduced for not filling seats, it is clear that there is no place in those colleges for students who get fewer marks.
The number of colleges is very low because of adversity during admission to Delhi University. Every year about two and a half million children pass the CBSE examination in Delhi, but only half of it has seats in colleges. Then the children of other states also want to come to Delhi after the twelfth and their priority is colleges in Delhi University.
In this way competition for admission increases. Last year, the Delhi government announced that among the colleges that come under the Delhi government, the children of Delhi should be given reservation.
