Students Protested Against Delhi University Cut-Off

DU announced its first cut-off list for undergraduate admission on Saturday and since then there is unrest amongst the students who are seeking admission in the Delhi University.

The highest cut-off is in Lady Shri Ram (LSR) College for Women pegging the score at 100% for three Honours courses.

Student groups on Monday launched protest against the University for such a high cut-off.

The protests were held by the Krantikari Yuva Sangathan (KYS) and the Left-affiliated Students’ Federation of India (SFI).

The student group labelled the cut-off as a “discriminatory nature”.

“This cut-off that is decided based on marks scored by students of big private schools is nothing but a policy of ensuring that the most marginalised student does not have any access to quality higher education. This ensures that students who bear the brunt of substandard public-funded school education are turned away from public-funded universities,” they said.

20 activists were protesting at the North Campus of the Delhi University in which 8 of the students were detained after they refused to call off the protest.
