LSR cutoffs are the talk of the talk during the admission season with everyone talking about their skyrocketing ways. Many factors contribute to these cutoffs. Some of them are:

  •  Number of Applicants: Each year students apply for a limited number of seats in the college. They vary for each course, but every course demands that the students meet the high cutoffs. 
  • The demand for the subject: The way courses like Eco Hons and BCom Hons have been of great ask in DU, the cutoffs for these courses have been getting higher each year. Some even reached a perfect 100 last year. 
  • Number of Seats: No matter the number of applicants, in the end, the college has a limited number of seats to offer. This fixed number increases the competition. 
  • Best of Four Criteria: Until the last year, when admissions were merit-based, the final marks of the best four subjects decided the cutoffs for the students. This year with the CUET exam, it will change.
