Those disappointed by the high cut-offs at Delhi University can hope for admissions at Ambedkar University, which released its list of required percentages on Wednesday.

The cut-off for economics honours at the varsity is between 80% and 85% for aspirants from Delhi. For students from outside Delhi, this cut-off range is 83-88%. This cut-off is 5% higher than last year’s.

There have been big jumps in cut-offs in history, psychology, math, social sciences and humanities.

In psychology, the cut-offs have jumped by 7%.

“We have a limited number of seats and don't want to admit an unreasonable number of students. The real picture, however, will be clear in the next few days depending upon the number of those who take admissions,” said Geetha Venkatraman, chairperson of admissions, Ambedkar University.

Started in 2008 by the Delhi government, the Ambedkar University is a model humanities university with campuses in Kashmere Gate and Dwarka.

The varsity has come up as a good alternative for students who are not able to pursue a course of their choice at DU.

With a reputed faculty and well-structured courses, the state university offers students a flexible system, including a four-year double majors BA (Hons) course. It reserves 85% of the seats for students from the National Capital Region (NCR).
