This time, there will be five cut-off lists
Other colleges will be declaring their own cut-offs by tomorrow. Students will then have till June 21 to visit the colleges with necessary documents and take admission. The second list will be out on June 25, the third on June 30, and the next two on July 7 and July 12. This time, there will be only five cut-off lists.
DU is starting centralized counseling this year
For the first time, DU is starting centralized counselling after the fifth list. Candidates not placed till then may be considered for this process. The usual system was modified after admissions went on for 11 lists last year, much after classes had already started.
DU, known for sky-high cut-offs, likely to see more competition
The DU in general, and SRCC in particular, is known for its unbelievably high cut-offs. In 2011, SRCC had a cut-off of 100%! This time, the university had asked colleges to set more "realistic" cut-offs. But as many as 12,737 students of the CBSE scored above 95% in their boards, 2,646 more than last year. Considering this, competition is expected to be more cutthroat.
