Ambedkar University Delhi (AUD) released its third list on Friday, with cutoffs dropping by up to 5% points in different courses.

The university has around 445 seats at its two campuses, of which over 50% had been filled by Wednesday. AUD offers honours courses in Economics, English, History, Mathematics, Psychology, Social Sciences & Humanities and Sociology, for which the third cutoffs were released on Friday.

For Delhi residents, the highest cutoff is for commerce stream students who are applying to the BA (Hons) Psychology programme, with an eligibility requirement of 95.25%. The course also has the highest cutoff requirement for non-NCT students. Non-NCT commerce stream students need to have 97.5% to be eligible for the course.

AUD had broken DU’s record of the highest cutoff this year, and had set cutoffs at 100% for certain students applying to certain courses in the first list. Non-NCT Commerce students needed a perfect score to apply for BA (Hons) History, and BA (Hons) Sociology. Non-NCT Science students applying to BA (Hons) Sociology too needed a 100% best four score to be eligible for Sociology (Hons).
