More than two-thirds of the seats allotted by Delhi University for its undergraduate admissions have been taken up by candidates as of Thursday evening.
While about 70,000 undergraduate places are on offer, the university has made 80,164 allotments in the first round, the results of which were shared with candidates on Wednesday evening. As of 7 p.m. Thursday, 60,863 candidates have accepted these assignments.
Due to the seemingly different difficulty levels of CUET in arts, commerce and science papers, the competition for seats in arts programs is being conducted at a much higher mark range than in science programs.
This is best illustrated by the example of the most popular arts and science programs at Miranda House. In unreserved seats, the highest CUET score against which a candidate has obtained a seat in their BA (Hons) Political Science program is 800/800; in fact 8 candidates who have been allotted seats in this program have this perfect score while the lowest score against which an allotment has been made is 787/800. In his Degree. (Hons) Physics Programme, the highest score against which a seat has been awarded in the unreserved category is 518/600 and the lowest is 401/600. In percentage terms, this would mean that the allocation of places is closed at 99.38% in BA (Hons) Political Science and 66.83% in BSc. (Hons) Physics. Among other popular courses, in BA (Hons) English, the highest score in unreserved seats was 800/800 and the lowest was 760/800. In BA (Hons) Economics, where candidates were required to have Mathematics as a CUET paper, the highest was 753/800 and the lowest was 715/800.
Analysis of the scores received by candidates to place in the 95th percentile for different CUET subjects shows that science papers were much more difficult to score in: in Mathematics, the required score was 103, 7/200 or 51%; in Chemistry, it was 129.2 or 64.5%; in Physics, it was 105.05 or 71.3%. On the other hand, in History, it was 165.4 or 82.7%; in Economics, it was 175.8 or 87.9%; in Psychology, it was 190.9 or 95.45%.
This can be seen similarly in Kirori Mal College where in BA (Hons) Political Science the lowest mark against which an allotment has been made is approximately 774/800 (96.75%) and in BSc. (Hons) Physics, is approximately 358/600 (59.66%).
KMC Admissions Coordinator Siddhartha Lahon, who teaches Physics, remarked that the starkly different mark ranges of these two popular programs indicate that the competition is likely to be out of reach for students who were in the industry from science in school and want to switch to an artistic or artistic education. commerce program now: DU required candidates to write CUET only in the subjects they studied in school. The lowest marks against which unreserved seats were allotted in BCom (Hons) college is approximately 772/800 and 738/800 in English.
Data shared by other popular colleges indicate that unreserved seat allotments in popular arts and commerce colleges have closed well above 700/800: B.Com in Ramjas College, which the highest no. of candidates he had selected as one of his preferences with 57,642, was closed. at approximately 764/800, its B.Com (Hons) course at approximately 771/800 and its BA (Hons) Political Science program at approximately 781/800.
In Sri Venkateswara College, allotments for unreserved seats closed at 769 for both BCom (Hons) and BA (Hons) Political Science, 754 for BA program and 742 for BA (Hons) history
In some lesser-known or off-campus colleges, admissions even for these popular courses have been around 600-700. For example, in Aryabhatta College, the seat allotment stopped at 692.62 /800 in BA (Hons) Political Science; to 654/800 in BA (Hons) English; and 638.5/800 in BA (Hons) Economics. At Ramanujan College, he closed at 674.02/800 for BA (Hons) Political Science; at 688.8/800 for B.Com (Hons); and 633/800 of BA (Hons) Economics. However, for popular courses offered in limited colleges, they have also closed high. At Aryabhatta College, allotments for BA (Hons) Psychology stood at 744.7/800 and at Ramanujan College, it closed at 728/800 for BA (Hons) Applied Psychology.
