Mumbai Colleges also have soaring cut offs

Mumbai Colleges also have soaring cut o
Delhi University (DU) have already come out with rising cut offs in the first list this year. In the meanwhile, the degree colleges in Mumbai, declared their first merit list for admissions to degree courses yesterday (20 June 2011). Similar to DU cut offs, the cut-offs to professional courses in Mumbai Colleges, soared by 3% compared to last year. The students were disappointed to learn that many colleges have kept their cut-offs above 90%.

The cut-off were very high at HR College of Commerce in Churchgate with 92.3% (for science students). At Vile Parle’s NM college it was 91.60%. Last year, the cut-off at these colleges was around 88%.

It is believed that although the pass percentage of students in Mumbai is 69.72% this year at the HSC, but lot of students have scored 90s and 80s in popular subjects, which is why the cut-offs are soaring. For professional courses, most students wish to apply to the top colleges, so cut-offs will remain high.

Some of the top colleges, such as St Xavier’s, Ruparel, Ruia, HR, Jai Hind, declared a marginal increase in cut offs in comparison to 2010. For instance, Bhavan’s college BSc computer science rose by 6% as compared to 2010.

The first list cut-offs are high for many students, but second list will definitely see a fall in the cut offs.The second list will be announced on 22-23 June 2011.
