JAIPUR: Thousands of the recent senior secondary school examination
pass-outs are a worried lot as they are unsure if they can get
admissions to good colleges of the Rajasthan University this session.

Their concern lies in the fact that the cut-off marks for some
colleges of their choice were very high last year.

Cut-off marks last year for colleges like Maharaja's, Maharani's and
Commerce colleges were well above 80% for general category students
and ranges between 60 and high 70% for SC/ST and OBC candidates.

These high cut-off marks were the result of the huge number of
students seeking admissions as against the limited numbers of seats in
these colleges.

The first cut-off list for 400 seats for B Com course in the Commerce
College was 85.80%, while for the OBC, SC and ST categories, it was
78.70%, 71.23% and 69.69% respectively.

Maharani's College was even higher with the first cut-off list for
admission to 240 seats in B Com was 90% for the general category,
while for SC, OBC and ST categories it was 72.6%, 80.8%, 70.46%
respectively. Altogether 3,500 students applied for the 240 seats in
the college.

Also, the first cut-off list in the Maharaja's College for admission
to BSc maths was 79.54% for general category and 76.77%, 68.40% and
69.85% for OBC, SC and ST candidates. For BSc biology course in the
college, the cut-off was 72% for general, 68.77% for OBC, 65.38% for
SC and 63.54% for ST candidates.
