St Stephen's announces first cut-off list 2017: 98.5% for English, Economics; 97.75% for History and 70 for Sanskrit

As the date for the first cut-off for undergraduate (merit-based) courses has been postponed to 24 June, Delhi University's St Stephen's College released its first list for commerce, science and humanities students.

The highest cut-off was for English and Economics at 98.5 percent. However, there is a caveat which says that students opting for Economics should have at least 90 percent in Mathematics to be eligible for the Economics (Honours) programme.

The BA History programme's cut-off stands at 97.75 percent, 97 percent for Science and 96.5 percent for the Arts stream. Mathematics cut off is at 97 percent, but Physics and Chemistry programmes have a cut-off at 96.66 percent.

Do they accept scores below 90s, you ask? Yes, but that's for a BA in Sanskrit and the cut-off for that course is 70 percent.

Economics 98.5 97.5 97.5 Mathematics 90%
