Eligibility Criteria

ALL students should have applied through the UNIVERSITY OF DELHI PORTAL FOR THEM TO BE CONSIDERED FOR ADMISSION IN ANY COLLEGE

 

Eligibility Criteria for Admission 2016

There is no minimum age bar for admission to Under-Graduate courses and Post-Graduate courses in the University and its colleges. Selection in various courses offered by the College will be done on the basis of marks secured in the class XII Examination of the CBSE or an equivalent Board. The applicant should take into account both theory and practical (where relevant) marks while submitting their aggregate percentage.


All subjects to be included in the calculation of 'Best Four' must have at least 70% theory component and 30% practical component of exam.  In case, the subject to be considered doesn't have 70% theory component and 30% practical component, then the marks of theory and practical only shall be converted to 70% and 30%, respectively on pro-rata basis. These new marks will then be considered for calculation of 'Best Four'. 

For Calculation of Best of Four percentages:

  • One language (Core/Elective/Functional).
  • The subject in which admission is sought (If a candidate does not include the concerned subject whether studied or not in Best of Four in which she/he is seeking admission in the honours course, then a disadvantage of 2.5% will be imposed on the calculated Best of Four percentage).
  • Any two academic/elective subjects as per List A (If a candidate does not include the subjects given in List A in Best of Four, then a disadvantage of 2.5% in Best of Four for each subject may be imposed).


Note:

➢ Accountancy will be treated as equivalent to Commerce wherever any board is not offering commerce as a subject.
➢ Biology/Biotechnology and Business Studies will be treated as academic/elective subject.
➢ The subject ‘Information Practices’ will be equivalent to Computer Science for admission to B. Sc (Honours) Computer Science only.
➢ In case a candidate has studied both elective and core in any language, the core will be treated as language, while elective can be considered as academic/elective subject.

The minimum eligibility conditions for admission to the respective courses are set by the University for admission to the respective courses:  These are enumerated below for the courses available in the college.

The College reserves the right to declare different cut-off marks for each combination.

 

B.     Admission of Other Backward Classes (OBCs) students

Twenty seven per cent seats in each course will be reserved for the OBC candidates who belong to the ‘Non-Creamy Layer’ and whose castes appear in the Central List as per the decision of the University of Delhi.

The certificate should have been issued in/after December 2015.

The OBC candidates shall be given a relaxation in the minimum eligibility in the qualifying examination to the extent of 10% of the minimum eligibility marks prescribed for the General category candidates. For example, if the minimum eligibility for admission to course is 50% for the General category candidates, the minimum eligibility for the OBC would be 45% (i.e. 50% less 10% of 50%).

All those OBC candidates who meet the minimum eligibility marks in the qualifying examination shall be eligible for admission in the order of their merit, keeping in view the availability of seats reserved for them.

The seats reserved for the OBCs shall be filled with the OBC candidates only. Only if OBC candidates possessing the minimum eligibility marks are not available in the OBC category on last date then the vacant OBC seats shall be filled up by other eligible candidate.
