The cutoffs released by the colleges are also riddled with additional criteria and aspirants need to carefully analyse them, as simply making the cutoff will not make them eligible for admission.

Zakir Husain Delhi College increased its cutoff from 70 in 2012 to 90 this year for English honours while Ram Lal Anand (evening) upped the bar for its BA programme by 20 percentage points at 85%.

Principal of a south campus college said: "We are aware that these are pretty high cutoffs. But colleges have to be careful because there has been no registration for programme courses and there is reduction in the seats for honours courses (as compared to FYUP). Once students come for registration and we have more data, we can work on more realistic cutoffs. We have the liberty as there will be seven more lists to fall back on."
