DU Admission 2021: Teacher, student reaction on cut off

Talking to IndiaTV, Aashish Dua, a class 12 student from Meerut, said, "I want to pursue B.Com honours... my first choice was Delhi University's Shri Ram College of Commerce (SRCC), but as the SRCC cut off touches 100 per cent, my second option now is Ramjas college." Aashish scored 98 per cent in class 12 from the commerce stream. 

Similarly, Anurag, a class 12 student from Noida said, "I scored 81% at the CBSE board exams this year in Humanities stream. I was happy with my marks and was expecting an admission into some decent DU college with BA in English. But after the cut off list was released, forget my admission, many of my friends with more than 90% marks are worried about their admission."

When asked about his admission plans now, Anurag added, "I will now wait for the further cut-offs by DU. I have also appeared for the Guru Govind Singh Indraprastha University (GGSIPU), the entrance exam for admission into BA JMC course as an alternative." 

A teacher of Aspam Scottish School, Noida, Sonam Marwah said, "With the increasing expectations of parents and the education system, the entire focus remains on performance in the exams instead of facilitating a child’s growth and development."

"This is a leading cause of increased stress and depression among students. Both child and parents are worried that where their kids will settle one day," she added.
