Gone are the days when securing the first division in the board exams was enough to ensure a place in prominent colleges of Indore such as the Government Holkar Science College or Government Arts and Commerce College and others.

As per experts from different groups, the tentative first cut-off percentages this year will be around 70% to 75% for B Com and B Sc and 60% for BA. When it comes to Holkar or GACC, it may raise to 82 to 85 percent.
For B Com computers, highly-preferred by students these days, the cut-off is expected to be higher considering that last year it soared to 85% in some colleges.
This year, about 3.72 lakh students across the state, including 60,000 from Indore division, have registered themselves through centralised online mode to get admission in undergraduate courses at more than 750 colleges across the state.
