Irrational cut-offs could be a setback for the education system, he told Singh.The minister said the vice-chancellor had assured him that the cut-offs would come down.In the first list announced on Tuesday, the Sri Ram College of Commerce (SRCC) pegged the cut-off for its hugely popular B.Com (Honours) course at 100 per cent for students who had not studied commerce in Class XII.For B.Com (Honours), Hindu College expects applicants to have scored between 95.5 per cent and 99 per cent.The high cut-offs have left hundreds of Delhi University aspirants disappointed.But SRCC principal P.C. Jain said there was nothing absurd in insisting that students from the non-commerce streams score perfect marks in all their subjects.”We get the best students from across the country and getting 100 per cent in the aggregate of your best performance in four subjects is no longer impossible in Board exams,” Jain said on Tuesday.Jain’s statement does not tally with the Board results in various states. In Uttar Pradesh, topper Akash Yadav secured 92.3 per cent. In Karnataka, of the over five lakh students who appeared for the Class 12 exams, fewer than one hundred scored over 95 per cent.advertisement- With inputs from Mail TodayFor more news on India, click here.For more news on Business, click here.For more news on Movies, click here.For more news on Sports, click here.last_img read more
