Cut-off list


St. Stephen’s College will soon begin the admission process, reportedly from 6th May. Unlike other colleges in the University of Delhi (DU), it has a long process for selection along with high cut offs.

The admission process in the University of Delhi (DU) for the cycle of 2019-2020 will begin with St. Stephen’s College releasing its prospectus, admission application, and residence forms on 6th May.

The college has a different admission procedure from other DU colleges. After clearing the cut-offs, students write an exam and then have an interview for their selection. In this, class 12 marks carry a weightage of 85%, the aptitude test carries 5% and the interview carries 10%. The college has 410 seats and offers 10 courses, including English, Computer Science, Urdu, and Persian, among others. It also has 40% seats reserved for Christians.

In the 2019 college rankings by the National Institute of Ranking Framework (NRIF), St. Stephen’s stood as the fourth best college on the list and third best college in Delhi. Given its prestigious name, the competition to get into one of the best colleges is also equally high, where the cut offs last year soared to a 98.5% for Economics and 98% for English for General category aspirants.

The college also releases separate cut-off lists for courses in Humanities, Commerce, and Science. As seen in last year’s cut offs, Commerce students have a relatively higher cut-off, sometimes by a margin of 2.5%.

In order to apply to DU, the students need to first register in the university admissions portal to generate a form number and ID, which they then use to apply to the different colleges. For the application to be valid, students also need to pay the admission fee. Jesus and Mary College also follows the same procedure for admissions.

With around 15,000 seats filled out of 65,000 and huge crowds observed in many University of Delhi colleges in the first cut-off list, all eyes are on the second cut-off list now. Given the turnout on 19th June, numbers suggest that seats for top courses in top colleges have almost filled, implying that many DU colleges may not come out with a second list only. Last year, DU colleges were able to fill only 2200 seats in the first round, which suggests that this year the cut-offs have been reasonably realistic.

Beginning now, DU colleges have begun releasing cut-off lists on their respective college websites. Watch out this space for live news; keep refreshing this article for timely updates.
