The Times of India, Jul 02 2016
Tamil Nadu students grab up to 80% of seats in SRCC so far
An unprecedented 75% to 80% of students who have so far got admission into the prestigious Shri Ram College of Commerce of Delhi University are from Tamil Nadu.
College sources said, after the first two days of admissions, a large number of stu dents from Kerala too had enrolled in the college. SRCC, one of the most sought after colleges in India for commerce education, offers two undergraduate programmes -BCom (H) and Economics -which recorded cutoffs of 98% and 98.25%, respectively. “Between 75% and 80% of candidates we have approved for admissions are from Tamil Nadu. There are others from Kerala Board as well,“ said Anil Kumar, admission in-charge, SRCC. Delhi University does not have a system of ratio nalisation of marks for students coming from state boards.
Till Friday evening, SRCC had approved the admissions of 339 candidates post verification of documents and certificates, and forwarded these to the university to facilitate fee payment.
According to college officials, a large number of candidates from Tamil Nadu have been coming for admissions, mostly for BCom (H).The college has never had to face such a situation where candidates from a single state have dominated admissions to such an extent, said an Shri Ram College of Commerce official.
“The highest scorer to have secured a seat this year is from Kerala board. She is Elizabeth Thomas, with a best of four aggregate of 100%. We have one more day to go for the first cutoff admissions and in case of seats remaining unfilled, we will have a subsequent list or two, which could bring in students from other states,“ Kumar said. Explaining why such a large number of students from Tamil Nadu got admission this year, an SRCC facul ty member said, “This year, students from Tamil Nadu board have scored very high marks. The number of students with an aggregate of 99% and above is also the highest in that board. It is, therefore, natural for them to be ahead in the competition.“
“The good news in all this is that now students from Tamil Nadu too think Delhi is the right place for higher studies,“ the faculty member said.
It is not SRCC alone that's seeing a rush of students from the south. Quite a few have also sought admission in Miranda House. Pratibha Jolly, principal of the college, said, “A departure this year so far has been the high number of students were getting from Andhra Pradesh and Telangana.“
