BENGALURU: Most colleges in the city offering Pre-University courses have decided not to revise the cut-off percentage for admission for the academic year 2015-16.

According to information provided by the colleges, the cut-off marks for Science courses varies between 60 and 97 per cent. Some top colleges in the city have fixed 90+ as cut-off for science courses and varies for Commerce courses. The highest cut-off marks is 94 per cent in some colleges.

Admission to Arts courses seems easier as colleges are open to giving seats to candidates who have scored 40 per cent too.

Mount Carmel College, St Joseph’s PU College and Christ PU College, however, refused to disclose any information regarding admissions or cut-offs.

“We will not disclose such details to anybody. You can get only get to know during the admissions,” said a staffer at Mount Carmel College. Christ College authorities too gave a similar response saying, “The details about  cut-offs will be disclosed while allotting seats.”

CUT-OFFS.PNGMeanwhile, many colleges have already completed the admission process even before the Department of PU Education has issued an official notification.

Colleges which offer integrated courses for CET coaching and IIT have already closed admissions.

Speaking to Express, a parent said, “I have admitted my daughter at V V S Sardar Patel High School for integrated courses through entrance test based on preparatory marks and they have also confirmed admissions to PU courses and started classes also.”

Some colleges like Vijaya PU College, National College, Basavanagudi and Jayanagar, BMS PU College and Vasavi College have started issuing application forms from Wednesday.

As per the circular issued by the PUE Department, colleges must follow the calendar of events.
