New Delhi, Oct 8 | As many as 60,904 candidates have applied for admission to various colleges after Delhi University’s first cut off list. Of these, 46,054 are from CBSE Board and rest students are from other education boards across the country.

According to Delhi University Registrar, Vikas Gupta, by the end of October 7, as many as 31,172 CBSE Board candidates, 2,365 Kerala Board students, 1,540 Haryana Board, 1,429 Council for the Indian School Certificate Examination (CISCE) Board students and 1,301 students from Rajasthan Board have successfully secured admission in Delhi University.

More than 6,000 students have secured 100 per cent marks from the Kerala Board, out of which a large number of students from Kerala have applied for admission in Delhi University. Some student organisations and teachers of Delhi University say that the Kerala State Education Board has been very lax providing marks in 12th board exams. Due to which thousands of students have secured 100 per cent marks there.

Student organisations and teachers are opposing the admissions being given to the students of Kerala.
