Ambedkar University of Delhi releases first admission merit list
New Delhi: Ambedkar University of Delhi (AUD) on Tuesday released the first set of cut-offs for admission to 13 undergraduate courses. Along with the cutoffs, the university has issued merit lists for individual courses.
BA (Honours) in Psychology has the highest cut-off at 98.75% for candidates in the National Capital Territory (NCT) of Delhi. This is a point increase from last year when the highest cut-off under the first list for the same course was 97.50%. For candidates outside NCT, the cut-off for BA (Honours) in Psychology is 99.5%.
For BA (Honours) in Economics, the cut-off for applicants from NCT is 97.25%, recording an increase of 1.25 percentage points from last year when the cutoff for the same course was 96.5%, recording a marginal increase of .75 percentage points from last year. The cut-off for students from outside Delhi is 97.75%.
For BA (Honours) Mathematics, the cut-off, this year, is 97.25% for NCT candidates—recording a marginal increase of over 4 percentage points from last year when the cutoff was 93%. Candidates from outside NCT need to secure 97.75% for admission. Additionally, candidates should have scored at least passing marks in Mathematics in their Class 12 examination.
The list is provisional and final admission will be subject to verification of marks and other requisite documents at the time of admission.
The merit list has been drawn on the basis of marks in the best of four subjects (including subjects as specified in the minimum eligibility criteria as per the programme).
In courses such as English, History, Mathematics, Psychology, and Sociology, the number of students on the merit list stayed between 65 and 68.
For other BA courses such as global studies, law and politics, social sciences and humanities and sustainable urbanism, the number of students in the merit list for the general category ranged between 100 and 105.
Students can apply for admissions under the first cut-off list between October 6 and 7, from 10am till 5pm. Fee payment also needs to be made during this window itself. In the list released by the university, it said that the dates of physical document verification were liable to change and students should keep a tab on the university website for any unforeseen change in schedule. The second cut-off list is expected on Friday.
The unitary non-affiliating state university, which has 85% reservations for students from national capital territory, has separate cut-offs for students from Delhi — giving them an edge over students from other states. Apart from applicants from NCT, the university also has a quota for co-curricular activities and single girl children.
The university offers nine BA (Honours) programmes in Kashmere Gate Campus, and four BA courses and four vocational studies courses in Karampura Campus.
