While scores of Delhi University aspirants were left disappointed with the first cut-off list soaring beyond a perfect 100 for a few courses, Twitter was abuzz with trolls on the “bizarre” ceiling.

“Deja DU – The feeling of being left out again after a Delhi University cut-off announcement,” said a user on Twitter.

Sunil Mehrotra tweeted, “Dettol would be able to get in Delhi University only after the 2nd cutoff”.

Another user said, “DU aa me yaad rakhna ??~ Students (when they heard about 100% cut off)”.

The seat seekers seemed to be using humour and sarcasm to mask the shock and incredulity at the steep cut-offs.

Shreya Khullar, said in a tweet, “Time when Burj Khalifa should rename itself to “DU Cut-Off Building”.

Among other posts, many of which were retweeted, was one which said, “I was wondering would Shakespeare, Scott, Dickens, Munro be eligible for St Stephen’s with 99% cut off? Even Tagore doesn’t stand a chance.”

“Summer sale is on : Myntra : 50%, Jabong : 60%, St Stephens : 99%, SRCC : 98%, Hansraj : 96%,” said another, while somebody else remarked, “Cut-offs beyond “100” per cent- Bizarre, unbelievable, absurd! What a joke sirjee-time to head to IIN.”

Delhi University announced the first cut-off list at midnight with the ceiling for admission to its undergraduate courses yet again touching the 100 per cent-mark for some courses.

“Even if you get your percentage same as Don Bradman’s average, #DelhiUniversity cutoff could bowl you out #FirstCutoff,” said another tweet.

With several changes brought in this year in the Best-Four calculation policy, the cut-off for some courses has even gone beyond 100 per cent.

The twitterati also greeted in the same vein the cut-off announced separately by St Stephen’s college last week.

“I have a Joke on St Stephens. But 99% won’t get it,” one of the tweets said.
