There are plenty of options for students who want to study social science courses but couldn't get admission in Delhi University.
Ambedkar University declared its first cut-off list on Monday, paving the way for Delhiites to get their preferred courses.
The university, being a state university, reserves 85% of its seats for students from the National Capital Territory.
The university was established by an act of the Delhi Government in 2007 and notified in 2008.
Last year's cut-off percentage of 55% for all courses has seen a sharp hike this year.
So while the cut-off for Economics (honours) is 75.75% to 80.75%, it is between 74% and 79% for English (honours). For sociology, the cut-off for Delhiites is between 73% and 78%.
These are the cut-offs for students who belong to Delhi. Those for outstation students are much higher.The university, which is located in Dwarka and Kashmere Gate, is offering seven undergraduate courses this year. The new courses will be available in English, Sociology and Mathematics.
All courses are in the semester system. At the university, the undergraduate courses are flexible. Students do not start studying their major subjects until the third semester.
Until then, they study basic foundation courses in English and social sciences. It gives students a chance to choose the major subjects wisely.
During the first two semesters, all undergraduate students study the same subjects. After they make their choice, they will proceed to major in Economics, Psychology or History.
All courses will have papers touching upon the Indian society, constitution and citizenship.
The second list, if any will be declared on July 7.
