Hindustan Times, New Delhi
Delhi University aspirants need not despair about the high cutoffs in the first list as most colleges are likely to come out with a second list with a slight dip in the minimum marks required for admission.
The highest cutoff at Delhi University in the first list is 98.75% at Lady Shri Ram College for BA (Programme). Journalism (Hons) at Delhi College of Arts and Commerce (DCAC) and Economics (Hons) at Shri Ram College of Commerce (SRCC) are a close second at 98.50%.
College principals said they are extra cautious while announcing the first list and it is only when admissions under the first list are over that they are able to release a realistic cutoff.
