Delhi University Evening Colleges Cut off 2016
DU evening colleges just 5 years back have cut offs in the range of 80% for popular courses but that seems to be history now. Every year DU cutoff for evening colleges have been increasing rapidly and this year it seems to reach 93% for top courses like BCom(H) , ECO(H) and many more.
DU now has eight evening colleges and this number should be increased first to reduce the astronomically high cutoff and now as a large number of students have started working during the day .
Delhi University now attracts a large number of students from outside the capital. Mr. Khurana, principal, Bhagat Singh College (Evening), said that only about 35% of his students were from within Delhi. The proportion of out of-state students varies with college at Dyal Singh College, it’s about 40% -but they are equally responsible for the high cutoffs.
DU seats have only 54000 seats and for that lakhs apply . It is obvious that most of the students would opt for evening colleges.
Earlier, evening colleges ran only pass courses; had a “vice-principal in-charge“ or an “additional principal“ who would have to get most decisions cleared by the morning college principal. Now they run as independent institutions, sharing just classrooms and governing bodies with their morning counterparts. But they still run mostly humanities and social science programmes.
