October is the month and the wait for Delhi University cut-offs has now come to an end. Outrageous as 100 percent cut-off may appear to the common man, this benchmark for admission is startling. Students already had their heart in their mouths after their board result and now, they have to go through another Agni Pariksha. 

Some Major Highlights Of DU Cut-Off List 2020

  • Lady Shri Ram College for Women

BA(H) Psychology, Political Science, and Economics is giving admission only to the students who have got 100% in their best four subjects.

  • Hindu College

BA(H) Economics: the cut-off marks for admission is 99.25 percent this year. 

BA(H) Philosophy: 97 percent cut-off in the first list. 

  • Gargi College

The cut-off percentage for BA(H) Economics is 97% for the year 2020. 

BA(H) Applied Philosophy: 98%

BA(H) Philosophy: 90% 



This list goes on and on. But the question that arises is ‘why so high-cut off every year?’. Keep reading this further to know the answer.

Why So High Cut-Offs?

Let’s talk about the factual data and then know the reason ‘why’. 

Fact Number 1 

There has been a huge jump in the number of applicants applying for Delhi University for UG admission. 

”But why?”

DU admission portal was open for almost 9-10 weeks. Whereas, usually it’s only open for four weeks. This allowed more and more students to apply for the same. 

Fact Number 2

Due to the delay in conduct of JEE Main and NEET exams, more and more students could now apply for DU to keep a window open for themselves. 

Fact Number 3

It is very simple to understand that there are more applicants than the seats available. Earlier 3,53,918 students have registered for UG courses at DU. But do you know the seats? It’s only 70,000 pals! This means, only 20% students will get admission out of the lot. These figures are very scary.
