After sky-high cutoffs in regular Delhi University colleges, the Non-Collegiate Women’s Education Board (NCWEB) too has seen a surge of admissions from students who have scored 90% or above.
The NCWEB is considered a popular choice among female students with high scores. It admits only female students from Delhi and NCR.
The women’s education board only offers BA (Programme) and B.Com. It had set the highest cutoff for B.Com at Miranda House at 92%.
This year, the NCWEB has so far admitted around 2,000 students of which more than 200 took admissions with scores of 90% or more.
The admissions under the third cutoff list will start on Monday.
“Over the years we have observed high-scoring students opt for NCWEB too. Till now we have admitted around 204 applications from students having scores above 90%. The student with highest score so far is 95.5% and there are many others who have scored 95.25% and around,” said said Anju Gupta, officiating director, NCWEB.
Gupta said students who go for NCWEB have the option of working as classes are held only on Sundays. “Female students who want to get professional experience or contribute to family income prefer NCWEB. Students can also pursue professional courses to become more employable by the end of three year,” she said.
The Non-Collegiate students are, however, not allowed to pursue any other full-time degree course.
Twenty-one out of the 25 colleges under NCWEB had set same cutoff for admission for BA (Programme) and B.Com at 78% and 88%, respectively.
Miranda House had set the cutoff at 88% and 92% for BA (Programme) and B.Com, respectively, while Hansraj College had set it at 87% and 91% for BA (Programme) and B.Com.
The cutoff at Aditi Mahavidyala and Bhagini Nivedita College was at 76% and 87% for BA (Programme) and B.Com.
From this academic session, NCWEB has added 12 new centres adding around 5,700 more seats to its undergraduate courses.
Students will have to submit their original certificates at the time of admission and the annual fee would be approximately `3,500 per year. However, no fee will be charged from Person with Disability (PwD) students.
