DU cut-offs raises alarm on balancing ed
About 54,000 seats, are available in 70 Delhi University (DU) colleges, the estimated number of students applying in the university is over 1,25,000. The expert suggests that at least six more DUs are required to meet the demand in the national capital.

SRCC's 100 percent first cut-off for B.Com (H) for non-commerce stream aspirants was irrational.But, along with this many of the premier Colleges are not ready to settle for any cut-off less than 95 percent.

The premier colleges consider the high cut-offs as a branding exercise. But, how fair is this for students to get into this race and competition? With alarming situation like this, the school education and standard of the boards that conducts major exams should be maintained.

As per a report, produced in 2006 the National Knowledge Commission advised, that India has nearly 200 autonomous colleges and over 17,000 affiliated colleges in 131 affiliating universities. But, most of the colleges survive as mere teaching shops.
This suggests that it is high time to revamp our education system at the school level, as well as at the higher education level.
