From a chief economic counsellor of International Monetary Fund to a Nobel prize winner, the Delhi University women colleges have given us all of them. Over a period of time, Delhi University women colleges have produced some of the brilliant minds and finest artists who have helped in shaping the entire world community. Unlike fascinating (as it sounds), it is quite challenging to grab a seat in these women colleges. A limited number of seats, higher cut off marks and numerous applications make it even more difficult to land with an admission offer.
If we look at the registration data, it reflects that a lot of girl students aspire to pursue their higher education from Delhi University women colleges after completing their senior secondary education. Going by the official figures, more girls register in DU colleges than boys. As per last year’s DU registration data, 1,29,753 girls applied for admission to DU in comparison with 1,28,634 boys. This means that 1119 more girls registered for DU admissions last year than boys.
Now, there would be quite a good number of girl applicants for DU this year too. Among all the 91 DU colleges, most of them are co-ed. However, do you know that there are DU colleges exclusively for girls? Yes, 22 colleges offer admission to girl students only or in other words, DU has 22 women colleges. And if you are one of those girl students for whom the top colleges would matter a lot out of the total 22 women colleges, then we have the list ready for you.
Top DU Colleges
As per the Ministry of Education’s National Institutional Research Framework (NIRF) Ranking, Miranda House College and Lady Shri Ram College have secured the first two positions not only among the DU colleges but as the top colleges across the country as well. Another aspect that makes some of the colleges of DU as top women colleges are the cut off which goes too high for many programmes.
DU cut-offs are prepared with the help of the best of four calculations of Delhi University, taking into account the marks scored in the class 12th examinations. The unprecedented result of class 12th students hints for a higher cut-off score this year.
Previous year cut-offs
Last year, the second-highest cut off score of DU (98.75%) was pegged by Lady Shri Ram College for BA Hons. Psychology and BA programme. In 2018, the highest cut off score was 98.75 % which was pegged by Lady Shri Ram College for the BA programme.
