NEW DELHI: No 100-per cent requirement in DU cut-off list might have come as a relief to the applicants but Ambedkar University in the national capital has set the ceiling at perfect 100 for five courses.

In the first cut-off list announced by Ambedkar University, the cut-off for commerce stream students has been kept at 100 per cent for five Honours courses- - Sociology, Psychology, History, English and Social Sciences and Humanities.

This year the varsity had received thrice the number of applications over last year for its various undergraduate courses.

The admission process concluded last week with 26,777 applications for its undergraduate programmes — a substantial increase from last year's 9,778.

The university begins a new campus at Karampura with 200 seats this year, bringing the total seats to 445. But the number of applications has increased by over 173 per cent in one year.

For the Kashmere Gate campus, which has 245 seats, the university received 15,823 applications; for its new Karampura campus, it has received 10,954 applications.

For its postgraduate courses with a total of 480 seats, the varsity has received 7,885 applications against last year's 5,687.

This year, the university has also waived fees for SC, ST and PwD (persons with disability) categories for undergraduate classes.

B R Ambdekar University, which was established by Delhi Government in 2008, is a state funded varsity with a student strength of 1800. The university offers various undergraduate, post-graduate and doctoral programmes.

The admission process for undergraduate courses offered by the nine departments at the varsity began on May 9 and the last date of application was June 24.
