The seat seekers seemed to be using humour and sarcasm to mask the shock and incredulity at the steep cut-offs. Shreya Khullar, said in a tweet, "Time when Burj Khalifa should rename itself to "DU Cut-Off Building".

Among other posts, many of which were retweeted, was one which said, "I was wondering would Shakespeare, Scott, Dickens, Munro be eligible for St Stephen's with 99% cut off? Even Tagore doesn't stand a chance."

"Summer sale is on : Myntra : 50%, Jabong : 60%, St Stephens : 99%, SRCC : 98%, Hansraj : 96%," said another, while somebody else remarked, "Cut-offs beyond "100" per cent- Bizarre, unbelievable, absurd! What a joke sirjee-time to head to IIN."

Delhi University announced the first cut-off list at midnight with the ceiling for admission to its undergraduate courses yet again touching the 100 per cent-mark for some courses.

"Even if you get your percentage same as Don Bradman's average, #DelhiUniversity cutoff could bowl you out #FirstCutoff," said another tweet.

With several changes brought in this year in the Best-Four calculation policy, the cut-off for some courses has even gone beyond 100 per cent.

The twitterati also greeted in the same vein the cut-off announced separately by St Stephen's college last week.

"I have a Joke on St Stephens. But 99% won't get it," one of the tweets said.
