Was just reading about the Delhi University's first cut-off list for its undergraduate courses has touched the 100% mark, not just for the blue-chip colleges but for lesser known one's too, practically making it impossible for the average students to even consider those colleges.

And what's more ridiculous is that even for some vocational and professional courses like Journalism, the University has decided to do away with the entrance or aptitude test and consider the marks of the candidate for admission.

So its clearly marks over aptitude, which will further deteriorate the quality of education and subsequently the quality of professionals. What do you guys say?

Does scoring a 100% makes one more eligible?

NO...one may like physics a lot and want to pursue it as a career but doesnt have much interest in chemistry , so if cut offs are so high he may never get a chance to realize his dreams . Its like to get into college , forget your skill just score 95+ in every field, govt should open more colleges , else "FALTU" movie will become a reality soon......

A good college makes a lot of difference in life. A college shapes ur attitude and aptitude so if good college have screwed up admission criteria they are a big concern.

Not really Sana. I think if you compare this scenario with that of a decade back, there was much better competition and true talent was picked. Only merit should not count in colleges

Getting 100 percent marks doesn't mean that the person has a good aptitude also.
