Delhi’s St Stephen’s College declared its admission cut-offs on Saturday but sprang a surprise as the minimum benchmark for the first list in the general category didn’t see an increase, a first in years.

The most sought-after course of Economics saw the cut-off go down by 0.25 % for science, commerce and humanities streams.

The highest cut-off was for English at 99% for commerce students, the same as last year.

The only subject that saw an increase of 0.5% was for the BA programme for science and commerce students. The cutoff increased to 96.5% for science and 97% for commerce.

Even for science streams, the cut-offs decreased. Only Physics (honours) saw an increase of 0.33%.

However for the reserved category, the cut-offs rose. A religious minority institution, the college reserves 50% of seats for Christian candidates.
