DU Admission 2020 Goes Online

DU is all set to conduct the admission process online this year. The authorities have asked principals of all the affiliated and autonomous colleges to prepare themselves for the process in advance so as to prevent any last time changes and hassles. 

DU Admission 2020: Expect Higher Cutoffs

Majority of the students who have applied for DU admission have completed their schooling at the CBSE Board this year, hence to be fair, the cutoff dates have been delayed. 

Pankaj Garg, a former member of the Academic Council said that the first cut-off would rather be high, and the fourth-fifth cut-off would also be two or three points higher than last year.

For example, if the cut-off for a certain course was 88 per cent in 2019, it will be 90 or 91 per cent this year in 2020.

Anju Srivastava, Principal of Hindu College said that if the cut-off list is not higher, it will be the same as last year. This year, students who scored more than 95% are twice than that in the previous year.

She said they're going to keep the cut-off high because of the limitations.

How is the DU First Cut off List 2020 Prepared?

DU releases the cutoff list until all seats in a particular course and college are filled. The cutoff list is prepared based on the marks of the qualifying examination.
