Delhi University will release the first cutoff list for various undergraduate courses in 3rd week of June, 2019. DU Cutoff is prepared on the basis of class 12th Board Examination 'Best of Four' scores. The ‘Best of Four’ score is the aggregate of four top scores secured by candidates in their Board Examination. Delhi University releases more than 10 list of cut-off scores to filter in the most deserving candidates for higher studies every year. The lists will be hosted on the university website. In 2018, DU had released 11 rounds of cut-off scores and the asking percentage in the 1st round for select colleges under the university was as high as 99.66%.
DU generates its separate program-wise and category-wise cutoff score lists for admissions into Arts, Science and Commerce subjects factoring in the number of seats available at its constituent colleges, number of applicants and the reservation criteria as well as the cut-off trend. The constituent colleges too release their own cut-off score lists on the basis of the DU Cut-off.
Around 82 colleges are affiliated to DU, with names like St. Stephen’s College, Hindu College, Ramjas College, Lady Shri Ram College for Women, Miranda House, Hans Raj College, Shri Ram College of Commerce, etc. topping the charts. DU offers undergraduate admissions into roughly 56,000 seats in these constituent colleges every year.
