NEW DELHI -- In a shift from previous years, no Delhi University college has kept the ceiling at 100 per cent in the first cut-off list for admission to undergraduate courses which was announced here today.

Admissions to the academic session 2016-17, for which the varsity had received 2.5 lakh applications, will begin tomorrow.

The highest cut-off for the academic session has been announced by Ramjas college at 99.25 per cent for BCom Honours, 98.75 for BCom and 98.5 for Economics Honours.

The cut-off for Hansraj College has remained unchanged across stream with Economics (Honours) being the highest at 98 per cent.

Sri Ram College of Commerce (SRCC), ranked among the best in the country for higher studies in Commerce and Economics, announced its cut off at 98.25 per cent for Economics Honours and 98 per cent for BCom Honours.

Miranda House cutoff for science courses is also same as last year with the highest being for Economics Honours at 97.75 per cent.

Lady Sri Ram College has announced its cut-off for Psychology at (98.50 pc), English (98.25 pc), Economics (98 pc) and Commerce (H) (98pc).

This is for the first time that the university has introduced completely online admission procedure for UG admissions unlike previous years when it used to be both online and offline.

The online registration process began on 1 June and will continue till June 22.

The cut-off for Sri Guru Teg Bahadur Khalsa College for BSc Electronics is 99 per cent.

Students can check the cut-offs online and if they meet the eligibility they can log into the university s admission portal and choose the college and course.

They will have to take a printout of the completed form, along with the listed documents and their self-attested copies and visit the designated college on any of the three days of admission.

In previous years, the 100 per cent cut-offs announced by various DU colleges have been slammed as unrealistic and bizarre.

However, for the first time the university saw a dip in the number of applications.

This year, a total of 2,50,914 applications were received by the university for the 54,000 seats in 63 colleges, as compared to last year s 2,91,819 applications.

Out of total applications, 1,30,354 applicants are male and 1,20,545 are female applicants. The university has received 15 applications in the others category.

However, the number of applicants under the disabled category has increased. This year, 1,187 applicants under the disabled category have applied.

For the first time, the university had also made sports and ECA category application centralised and online.

Under the sports quota, there are 10,382 applicants, and 8,273 under the ECA quota. Each college reserves not more than 5 per cent quota in the category.

Also, this year, the applicants under the Children of War Widows and Kashmiri migrant quota also filled the centralised form. There were just 430 applicants under Kashmiri quota. Under the Defence Category (CW) there are 318 applications.

The university reserves 5 per cent each under the category.
