The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) is expected to declare its Class 12 results on Saturday - kick starting the rush for Delhi University (DU) admissions.

The university’s cutoffs this year, too, are unlikely to dip with the CBSE deciding to not challenge a Delhi High Court order to continue with the ‘moderation policy’. Marks moderation refers evaluators doing upward or downward revision of marks of students based on how difficult their examination paper was. This is said to be the reason for inflated scores in Class 12 board exams — which in turn lead to impossibly high cut-offs.

Almost 80% of applications, DU receives, are from CBSE and rest are from other boards.

Take a look at DU’s first cut-offs of 2016 to find out if you have a chance of getting admission in DU.

Teachers say these cutoffs can give a fair idea to students of their chances of getting admission to DU as the variation every year is not significant.
