DU cut-offs shot up 16% points

DU ADMISSION 2019
Back in 2009, scoring between 82%-87% was considered to be good for getting admission in any  reputed DU college. Now, after almost ten years, getting anything less than 97% is considered to be undesirable.  The cut offs for Delhi University have shot up almost 16% in the last decade. The number of CBSE students scoring perfect 100s are increasing year by year. This year, over 17,693 students have secured over 95 per cent, while 90,000 have scored over 90 per cent.  Ten years ago, anything between 82 and 87 per cent was sufficient to get admission in  top DU colleges like Hansraj, Hindu, KMC and Miranda House. In the last couple of years, students scoring below 97-98 per cent have no such chance.  Where admissions to degrees like BA Economics (Hono...

On Wednesday the Delhi University Teacher's Association (DUTA) held a 'black flag' demonstration to protest against the lack of intervention of the administration in a case of alleged harassment of physical education teachers at two of its colleges. Two associate professors of the Vivekanand and Shyamlal (E) College have received letters from the principals of these colleges informing them that they would be retiring at the age of 62 instead of 65.

Ever since the HRD ministry started ranking universities in 2016, it was the first time in 2019 that the Delhi University did not make it to the top 10.
