The cut-off score for the B.Com honours course in top notch DU College closes at 99.5%. Delhi University is going to commence the admission process soon and has some new plans for this academic session. Instead of eight to ten cut-off lists being released every year, the varsity will release only five cut-offs this year on the basis of which students can seek admission in the associated colleges of the University of Delhi. The first cut-off will be released on June 22. This is being done so as to finish the admission process on time i.e. by August 21, 2016.

The renowned Central University which is gearing up for admissions to undergraduate courses for the next academic session is planning to make the entire admission process ‘online’ this time. The admission process for the undergraduate courses will kick start from May 25, and will continue until June 14, 2016. Last year, the varsity had attempted the same but offline admissions also continued as there were concerns from parents and students about the feasibility of the process. This means no application form will be available ‘offline’ from this year onwards at any of the associated colleges. Even UGC has recommended that the process for admissions should be completely online from this year.

Every year many of us spot a clueless teenager walking around usually accompanied by a parent with a huge folder, filled with hundred of copies of the official documents they could think are mandatory and a million passport size photos. Might be these travelers have different origins but a single destination, Delhi University.

Candidates can fill the Optical Mark Registration (OMR) form through the Delhi University’s official website ( Upon logging into the official website, aspiring students will have to fill the centralized form and make online payment for applying to DU’s 61 colleges. However, the two religious minority-run colleges namely St. Stephens and Jesus & Mary College will abide by their separate admission process.

With so many feathers on its cap, Delhi University justifies its desirability to go online completely. The University has a lot to offer to its students. But, every year soaring cut-offs graphs getting in this university is no more everybody’s cup of tea and it had never been. The years of dedicated and determined hard work pays the aspirant a seat in the Delhi University. But, someone has rightly said, “Nothing worth having comes easy”.

Even after two meetings conducted during the last fortnight, admission guidelines have not yet been finalized. However, the fitness test for the sports quota will continue and remain centralized. Colleges will conduct trials for the students who qualify the fitness test. Open days sort of orientation session will also be organized by the University in which varsity officials will address the queries of parents & students related to the admission process.

Delhi University is one of the most desired university in India and this fact is testified every year by the whooping average of 2.5 lakh applications, the university receives during the admission months. Another testimonial of DU being the most desired college is the high cut-off scores for graduate courses.
