Delhi University Admission 2016: How to Calculate Best of Fours Marks

In Delhi University’s admissions calculation of marks of class 12th plays an important role. Sometimes students find it ambiguous in nature & miss their golden chance to get admission in this prestigious university. We have discussed some important points related to marks calculation as given below:

  • If any student wants to take admission in the honors course which he had not studied in his/her 10+2: Admission will be granted in that subject but by deducting 2.5% of aggregate marks scored in 10+2. Student will be placed in the cutoff list after this deduction only.
  • Inclusion of Vocational Subject of 10+2: Marks of vocational subject will be considered while sanctioning the admission. It will be performed by deduction of 2.5% from total aggregate of best four subjects.
  • Stream Change: In case a student has done 10+2 in Arts or Commerce & want to pursue graduation in Science then he will be granted admission after deduction of 5% marks from the aggregate of best four subjects. Same fact will also be applicable to switching from Science to Arts or Commerce.

Criteria for marks calculation of best four subjects of 10+2:

Basic criteria to sanction admission in Honors courses of Arts & Humanities in DU are related to calculation of marks in best four subjects. University has certain guidelines, which are required to be followed strictly: First thing you need to know, which subjects can be included in the best four subjects.

Language subjects, it may be core/elective or functional:

  1. In case a student has studied core & elective subject in a language other than the core language subject will be treated as language subject & subject studied in other language will be treated as elective/academic subject.

Consider this example: Let us say you have studied both Hindi (which is an elective subject) & English (which is a core language subject) in 10+2. Now for calculation of best four if you will include Hindi & Sanskrit both then 2.5% marks will be deducted from the total.

  1. Those students, who want to pursue graduation in language subject, will be awarded benefit of 2% in aggregate of best four subjects if they have studied that subject as elective in 10+2.

Consider this example: Let us say, you have studied Sanskrit/Computer Science/Hindi or any other subject mentioned in the table & you also want to pursue graduation in any of the below listed subjects then you will be awarded with advantage of 2% n total.

Arabic

French

  1. The subjects, included in the best four must contain 70% theory & 30% practical part, if not so then the marks will be converted on the basis of Pro-rate basis for further calculations (applicable for science subjects only).

Consider this example: Let us say a student has scored total 95 marks in Physics. Here is the division of marks, Theory: 55 out of 60 & Practical: 40 out of 40. Now as we can observe that these marks are not in the ratio of 70:30. So we have to convert these through pro-rata system.

Pro-rata marks in Physics: ((55/60)*70) + ((40/40)*30) =94.16

  1. Those students, who want to pursue graduation in language subject, have to suffer disadvantage of 2% in aggregate of best four subjects if they have studied functional language subject.
  2. In case a student has not studied any language subject in 10+2 & wants to pursue honors course in language then he has to suffer with disadvantage of 5% in aggregate of four subjects.

Note: Above condition is not applicable if anyone wants to pursue graduation in Hindi/English.

  1. If a student wants to take admission in Hindi or English then it is mandatory that student have studied that subject in 10+2 & must include that in best four subjects.

Note: Students must keep in mind that the honors subject in which he wants to take admission must be included in the best four subject (whether studies or not), if not then he has to suffer with penalty of 2.5% in the total aggregate of four subjects.

Below mentioned examples will help you to select the best four subjects:

  1. Accounts: 90 Business Studies: 92 Economics: 88 English: 94

Total marks: 364, Percentage: 91

Effective percentage for B.Com & B.A is 91. Students will be eligible to take admission in B.A Political Science after deduction of 2.5% i.e. 91-2.5= 88.5%

  1. Physics: 96 Mathematics: 94 Chemistry: 92 English: 90

Total marks: 372, Percentage: 93

Effective percentage for B.A. Hons. Maths & English is 93. Students will be eligible to take admission in B.A. Hons. History & Economics after deduction of 2.5% i.e. 93-2.5= 90.5%
