How DU Cut Off System Works?
The cut off for DU UG admission is prepared based on the Best 3/4, PCM/PCB, etc subject-wise marks. For example – if XYZ College has announced its cut off for UR category as 87% for a specific course, and your effective percentage for that course is, let’s say, 87.3%, then you are eligible for admission (provided that you meet all the required criteria outlined in the BoI) in that Cut-off List and can apply to that college within the time-period outlined for that Cut-off List.
The same process is followed for all the lists till the end of the fifth cut-off list. Thereafter, if there are any vacant seats, cut-offs as applicable to course and category will be released again by each college, as per the schedule given.
List of Courses for which DU Cut Off 2021 is Released

What is ‘Best of Four Marks’ Policy for DU UG Admission 2021
In order to prepare the cut off criteria, Delhi University has introduced a method of “Best of Four (subjects) calculation”. This mechanism allows for easy admission to the students for merit-based programs. For the best of four calculations, the following subjects will be taken into account.
- One language subject (Core/Elective/Functional)
- One subject in which the admission is being sought after
- Two academic/elective subjects
For example – If a candidate wishes to apply for admission in BA Hons program, then they need to include the three subjects that are chosen by the candidates for the best of four calculations, or else there shall be a deduction of 2.5% marks from their total ‘Best of four’ aggregate marks.
