Cut-offs to undergraduate courses in top city colleges rose by up to 3% points, with self-financing courses continuing to have among the highest cut-offs. At HR College in Churchgate, the commerce cut-off for Bach-elor of Management Studies (BMS) rose from 92.3% last year to 94.5% and for Bachelor of Commerce (Accounting and Finance) it increased to 94.2% from 93.4%.
At Vile Parle’s NM College, the BMS cut-off for commerce students rose from 91.6% to 93.4% and for B.Com (AF) it was 91% as against 89.5% last year. The cut-off for Bachelor of Manage-ment Studies (BMMS) rose from 83.5% to 85.17% for science students at SIES College in Sion.
“These courses continue to be in demand,” said Rekha Bahadur, vice-principal, HR College. “Students feel it has more value than a regular BCom course.” For regular arts, science and commerce courses, too, cut-offs rose. “The marks have been good this time across all boards,” said T Shiware, principal of Hinduja College at Charni Road, whose BAF cut-off rose from 82.67% to 85%.
