The 90s club in the Central Board of Secondary Education class 12 exams went up by 900 students this year as the number of students scoring more than 90% went up from 6,471 last year to 7,371 this year.


While this news may have brought cheer to many students and parents, the Delhi University cut-offs are expected to remain as high as last year's.

With a twofold increase in the number of students scoring above 96% in English, the cut-offs in humanities may see a hike as many students scored above 95% in humanities subjects.

Cut-offs in commerce subjects may remain similar to last year's, with many having done well in Business Studies and Economics. Science is the only area where cut-offs may see a slight dip.http://www.hindustantimes.com/Images/Popup/2012/5/29_05_pg1a.jpg

"I don't expect any noticeable fall in the first cut-offs in campus colleges," said Rajendra Prasad, principal of Ramjas College.

"Cut-offs are not going to reach 100% this year but we cannot expect a big dip either," said PC Jain, principal of Shri Ram College for Commerce.
