BA, BCom third list cut-offs lower than last year’s

PUBLISH DATE 19th July 2018

Even as professional courses remained elusive for most students in top city degree colleges in the third merit list released on Wednesday, the cut-offs in traditional arts, science and commerce courses dropped in comparison to last year. Principals attribute the lower cut-offs to the increasing popularity of professional courses and more seats for open category students in minority colleges after the reservation for backward class students was scrapped.

KC College principal Hemlata Bagla said apart from the number of open category seats increasing in top minority colleges, the demand for self-financed professional courses is rising. “This year, the cut-off for the BFM (BCom in Financial Markets) is almost similar to BAF (BCom-Accounting and Finance), a sought-after course, at our college,” said Bagla. The cut-offs for self-financed courses, including BAF, BMS, BFM and BMM, remained above 90-92% in most top colleges. In fact, the cut-off for BMS for commerce students was as high as 95% in some colleges.

At St Xavier’s College, open category seats increased to 42% from 25% after quota for backward class candidates was scrapped in minority colleges. “More students were admitted in the open category, which could have brought down the cutoffs compared to the previous year,” said principal Agnelo Menezes. Admissions for HSC students in BA closed with the second list itself.

At Jai Hind College, the cut-off for BCom programme dropped below 90%. Even BA closed at 88.9% this year in the third list as opposed to 91% last year. “There are multiple options available for students pursuing BCom. Even arts students prefer five-year integrated law programme or designing courses these days,” said principal Ashok Wadia. The cut-off at HR College for BCom dropped by over 4% from the second list.

NM College principal Parag Ajgaonkar said the cut-offs for self-financed courses have remained on the higher side and are also comparable to last year’s. The college, however, closed its third list for BCom at 93.8% last year and this year, it dropped to 91.6%. Mithibai College continued to have the highest cut-off for arts this year too, though it dropped from last year’s cut-off. Admissions in the third list for arts closed at 93% this year. But in other courses, the college recorded higher cut-offs than last year’s. Principal Rajpal Hande said with graded autonomy granted to it and the best college award, they were expecting higher cut-offs. TNN
