  1. Hi Akshat,

    Most likely as per CL expert team, the DU JAT 2016 cutoff should be between 195-200 for general category students. All the best!

     
    • Hi Shruti,
      Though, it’s difficult to predict at this time, however, with a general category score between 160-165, chances are that you should get through the BBE (in 1st or 2nd counselling). However, the probability of getting through BBA program is very bleak. We wish you luck!

       
    • Hi Nitesh,

      204 is a very good score and there are bright chances that you will get a call from all the colleges. Please do share your doubts and we shall respond to the same. Best wishes with you.

       
    • Dear Varun,
      230 is surely a good score. Though it depends on the cutoff, however, with this score, you can get a call from this college. Stay positive and stay connected.

    3. Is this year’s cutoff likely to fall a little in comparison to last year due to difficult Maths n General Awareness section? What’s ur opinion on this?

     
    • Dear Neeraj,
      As you have the category advantage, you might get a call. However, you will have to perform really well in the GD/PI.
      If you are a CLite, you already might have attended GD/PI sessions. Feel free to connect with your mentors/center for the same.

      Confidence surely is an important requisite, however, that’s not the only factor to GD/PI success. You may refer to GD DO’s & Don’ts at http://exams.careerlauncher.com/tips-symboisis-gd-sessions/

    According to the answer key of du, I am scoring exactly 209 marks, and 90.75% in class 12th boards. Are there any chances of getting a call from SSCBS? Also, there was a little ambiguous question in the answer key (series 11, Q96), can we challenge it?

     
    • Dear Rashi,

      Continue to perform well in the GD/PI. We wish the very best!

    • Dear Ajay,
      205 is definitely a good score. Stay positive and you should be able to make it, subject to a good performance in GD PI.
      Wish you the very best for the same.

       
  19. I am getting around 180 marks…(gen)

  21. Mam, actually I’ve also cleared BHU UET for BA (H) Social Sciences with 24th rank. The date of counseling at BHU & DU JAT results is the same i.e. July 4, 2016. If I’m not selected in CBS ahead, I may even lose admission in BHU & left with nothing else. How to solve this dilemma?

     
    • Dear Prajjwal,
      Yes CBS will not be a sure shot thing, as everything depends on the performance in GD /PI.
      However, you can call (CBS) and ask them for an alternate time some, if possible.

       
  22. Ma’am in my opinion there is a mistake in the answer key of series 21, it should be option C. In questions 12 and 53 instead of option B. And A. Respectively. Please do have a look. Thankyou!

     
    • Hi Saksham,

    what shall i prepare for my interview and gd. And is this the only interview for all colleges(and every branch) or every college will call us separately

     
  41. “No” is appearing against my name in DU JAT 2016 results. Is it applicable for BBE as well? or there will be separate list for BBE? If yes, is this final list or there will be subsequent 2nd/3rd list?

    (b) Why have 4,667 candidates been called for GD/PI for a total of 733 seats (excluding those to be decided by the University) ?
    (c) How are the seats allocated for BMS (GG, TB and R’mjn – 46 seats each) and for BA(Hons) Biz Eco (GG, TB and Khalsa – 46 seats each) ?
    (d) With 840 candidates to be put through GD & PI per day from 5 through 9 July and then some on 10 July, what kind of ‘evaluation’ does the University expect to achieve (in your opinion, of course)?

     
    • Here are the responses to your queries:
      a. The list will be released by DU only in next few weeks. Would advise you to wait and watch out for the same.
      b. The students called for GDPI are always more than the seats, so that the best can be shortlisted.
      c. You may check the official site
      d. They are the experts sitting there who can manage it efficiently.
      You just on your preparation and go ahead for the same. All the best!

       
  44. the interview schedule is out, ma’am.
    however as opposed to the 1000 people qualifying ever year, this year nearly 4500 people have been called for the GD/PI sessions.
    Why is that?
    ma’am will the marks of our JAT be released sometime later?

  45. I am not able to check my result as my roll no. Is not being displayed in the list. What to do now ? Can you suggest where I can report to for the problem?

     
    • Dear Navya,
      The cut off has not been released. Students are already informed. If there is ‘Yes’ in GD PI, then you will get informed.

       
    • Dear Nupur,
      They usually take at least a week to announce the result after GDPI round. Cut off will be declared on the DU site itself.

       
    • Dear Pooja,
      If her GDPI went well then are bright chances of her getting a call. They usually take at least a week to announce the result. You will have to wait & watch.

       
    • Arunima – Good chances. The score is good, purely depends on your GD PI, others performance too. At this stage, you can wait for the result that should be out in a weeks time probably.

       
    • Vaishali – Good chances. The score is good, purely depends on your GD PI, others performance too. At this stage, you can wait for the result that should be out in a weeks time probably.

    • Nimisha – Can’t comment on the basis of the rank. The overall score is dependent on your performance in GD PI as well.

       
  46. I’ve got overall rank 958 (Gen) in JAT. I’m afraid I won’t get any decent college under DU. I’ve secured admission in BHU. Is it worth trying further for DU or joining BHU is recommended?

     
    • It’s a doubtful score but it’s worth trying for DU. If you have got a GDPI call, put your best foot forward in the GDPI, else you have a back up.

       
  47. Mam I got 194 marks in entrance nd 1029 after gd/pi i got 1029 rank in general category.i want to ask in which colleges i am elligible nd for what courses

    • You have to connect with DU authorities only. Write an email(with complete details) or call as they are the ones who can change it.

  54. Ma’am I would like to know what are the chances that the eligibility criteria would be same for the next year(2017) too? And also what are the chances that board result will be taken into consideration for final rank in 2017? as this year (2016) board result was not considered.

     
    • Dear Raghav,
      This was the first time that board exam result was not a consideration. Though we would like to mentor you on all aspects, However, we cannot comment any of your queries as it is purely a DU decision.

       
  55. My du jat rank os 438. I haven’t applied in bbe course in first counseling and now i m not getting option for further BMS counselling. I m already in good bcom h college but i want to get into any bms college. Now what should i do??

     
    • Bhagat, If you haven’t got call for BMS course then you might not be selected for the same. If that’s the case then our suggestion is to continue with B.Com (H) from a good college is a better option.
