High scores may affect UG cut-offs

PUBLISH DATE 27th May 2018

The number of CBSE students pursuing UG in Mumbai has gone up by 80% in the last five years. From only about 3,500 students on city campuses in 2013, the number has gone up to 6,402 in 2017. Officials believe that the variety of self-finance courses which also are job-oriented is the reason for the increase in numbers.

With many schools witnessing a rise in 90% and above scorers, college principals believe that the high scorers in the city will impact the degree college admissions in top colleges and in popular courses. At Mithibai andf Jai Hind colleges last year, cut-offs for BA did not drop below 94% even in the third list. Mithibai principal, Rajpal Hande, said the impact on degree college admissions will also depend a lot on the HSC results (slated next week). Hande said that BA (psychology) and self-financing courses such as BMS, BAF, BMM are the courses where the cut-offs are usually higher and affect HSC students.

Principals feel the no-moderation policy has benefited the high scorers. "With moderation, the results would sometimes be generalised. The evaluation this year has been more realistic. While the range of marks secured by our toppers is similar as compared to last year, the students have done much better," said Mallika Subramaniam, principal, Navy Children's School, Colaba. At the school, 31 out of 127 students scored above 90%.

At Delhi Public School (DPS) in Nerul, the numbers in the elite club of 90% and above scorers have gone up. Of the 246 students who appeared for the boards, 238 scored distinction and above, said the principal, J Mohanty. RN Podar School, Santacruz, too saw a 3% increase in students scoring 90% and above—43.15% of the total. The number of students with a score of 95% increased by 3%. “Even though we have standardized examinations, a lot depends on who is correcting your paper, where and when,” said the principal, Avnita Bir.

The toppers’ score in science and commerce has increased marginally at Rajhans Vidyalaya. “Last year, the top score in science is 96.2% and now it is 97% and in commerce it was 95.8% which has gone up to 96.2%,” said an official from the school. The overall pass percentage in the country has, meanwhile, increased by nearly 1 percentage point at 83.01. Chennai region, which includes Maharashtra, has bettered performance with its success rate increasing from 92.6% last year to 93.87% now. Like in the country, in Chennai region too, the girls outperformed boys. Chennai region holds the second place in the country after Thiruvananthapuram.

HSC results likely to be out this wk

After the announcement of the ISC and CBSE Class XII results, all eyes are now on HSC results, which are expected to be declared this week. An official date is, however, yet to be announced. More than 13 lakh students from across the state have appeared for the HSC examination. HSC results will be crucial to determine cut-offs for degree colleges in the city.
