New Delhi, Jun 15: With competition every where, students are now used to the increased cut off in colleges. This year the cut off lists announced by the Delhi University is only making the students think if their admission would be possible.

The cut off for Sri Ram College of Commerce this year is 100 percent. While Hindu colleges cut off is 97 percent, while the cut off in Lady Sri Ram College is 97 percent.

Expressing his shock, Chief Minister of Jammu and Kashmir, Omar Abdullah's tweet read: "With these kinds of cut-off marks... I would have been doing a correspondence course because I wouldn't have even got a "pass course" admission..."....Well...I guess...that's a thought shared by many of us....". He also called the cut offs "scary".

Meanwhile Human Resource Development Minister, Kapil Sibal called the cut off unfortunate and questioned Sri Ram College of Commerce cut off at 100 percent.

"It is unfortunate that some colleges have cut off at 100 percent record this year," said Kapil Sabil. "I request the Delhi Vice-Chancellor to take a note of it," he added.

The Vice-Chancellor of Delhi University said that the cut-offs would come down subsequently.

The principal of Sri Ram College of Commerce, SP Jain justified the cut off and said that the college was following the rule since 20 years.

"Cut off is decided by the students performance and not by the principal," he said.

"Students will get into colleges in the second or third list," he added.

Dinesh Singh, Vice-Chancellor, Delhi University said that the first list is always "cautious".
