A Delhi University official on Tuesday said that the varsity will try to wrap up the admission process for undergraduate programmes as early as possible and will refrain from issuing the cut-off lists beyond a certain number.
The registration for admission for undergraduate programmes will begin on Tuesday from 6 p.m. onwards, the time when the admission portal on the varsity website is programmed to go live.
The official, a member of the admission committee, told IANS that the university will reach out to the colleges asking them to keep the cut-offs "realistic" this time and take a cue from the previous year's cut-offs.
In its official communication, the university wrote that it will issue at least five cut-offs.
"Five cut-offs are standard. We always try to keep it within this and try to end the admissions as soon as possible. However, it all depends on how the colleges respond to this plan. We may have to issue more cut-offs if seats remain vacant," the official said.
"We can only request the colleges to keep the cut-offs realistic. Our role is only that of an advisor. Moreover, the CBSE also has said that it will not be spiking or moderating marks this year which will also result in more sensible cut-offs," he added.
Several colleges in the last few years have been raising the percentage bar up to as high as 99 per cent.
Last year, Sri Guru Teg Bahadur Khalsa College, which demanded 99.66 per cent for the Electronics course, came down to 92 per cent by the time the sixth cut-off list was out.
