3. The infrastructure is a basic level

The infrastructure is not that great as compared to other colleges. So if you are in the influence of great college which holds a cool college look, then be aware. The college is all about science courses and little does it offer is only one commerce course.

Since the college does not come under the BEST COLLEGES OF the UNIVERSITY OF DELHI, it has a relaxing cutoff as compared to other prestigious colleges of the University of Delhi.

Last year the lowest cutoff for the college in general category was 80% in bachelors of life science, which was in the 10th cutoff list issued by the University of Delhi, for General Category. You may refer to the overall cutoff list of the university through this link :

Please note that your percentage and the cutoff list is compared through the BEST 4 criteria laid down by Delhi University. Different courses have different subjects which can be included in the BEST 4 CATEGORY, for comparing it with the cutoff list.

Criteria for Calculating the Best 4

  1. Anyone of the language(core/elective/functional)
  2. The main subject for which candidate is seeking admission, for example, if someone wants to do mathematics(Hons) then he/she must include maths in best 4. Failing to do so, will result in a 2.5% disadvantage over your best 4 percentage.
  3. Any two of the List A can be chosen to combine with your best 4. If the selected course is not there in List A then it can result in a disadvantage of 2.5%.

12. Places to Bunk college

You may wonder about the lawns and staircase and canteens in the college for bunking mid lectures. But may I warn you of the thing that the college is decent and small so there are very low chances that you will find any such point inside the campus. Unavailability of many canteens, lawns, and strictness of faculties on the staircase is one example of it. 

However, there is a CHAI TAPRI outside the main gate of the university, whose ginger and masala chai is quite famous among the students.
