Scoring a 90% and above was not enough for thousands of students to get into self-finance degree courses in top city colleges as the cut-offs remained high even in the second merit list, which was declared on Thursday. A few colleges saw a marginal drop in cut-offs.
Students from HSC board did not feature in the second merit list at top colleges, again.
“Most students have secured seats, therefore, there was only a marginal dip in the percentage. The state board students have still not figured on the lists of self-finance courses, such as BCom Accounts and Finance (BAF), Bachelor of Management Studies (BMS) and Bachelor of Mass Media (BMM), as the cut-offs have remained above 93%,” said Parag Thakkar, vice-principal, HR College in Churchgate.
Maitri Jain, who secured a seat in a south Mumbai college through the in-house quota for commerce, said, “Not a single student from our college has managed to get admission in the self-finance courses. The cut-offs are too high. My friend scored 90% and I scored 77%, but both of us have opted for regular commerce in the in-house quota.”
Several top colleges are expecting to close their admissions by the end of the second list as very few students are opting out.
Cut-offs for courses, such as BAF, BMS and BMM, remained high in most colleges. In KC College, the cut-offs fell by 1% or 2% for popular courses like BAF, BFM and BBI. In the commerce category of BMS, the dip was marginal at KC College.
The cut-offs in science courses fell by 4-10% in most colleges. At Jai Hind, while BMS and BMM continued to remain beyond most students’ reach, the cut-offs for science courses, such as computer science, biotechnology and BSc course, reduced by 8-10%.
At Xavier’s College, there were no seats left in the BA course for HSC students, while the cut-off for the same course for students from other boards dipped from 96.2% to 95%. Sangita Kohli, principal of S K Somaiya College, said, “A craze for accounting and finance this year have kept cut-offs high.”
