Calculation of DU JAT Cut off Marks
DU JAT is a moderate difficulty level exam so that it could be solved by class 12 passed students. Accordingly, the DU JAT cut off may not go very high for all the DU colleges offering UG Management programmes. Some of the top  BBA/BMS colleges of Delhi University will have higher DU JAT cut offs, while others may not have so high DU JAT cut off .


DU JAT Cut Off marks are calculated depending upon following parameters:

  • Score Normalization: DU JAT is a two shift exam. Accordingly, score normalization across both the test sessions considering the difficulty level has to be carried out before arriving at DU JAT Cut off marks.
  • Exam Pattern: DU JAT consists of 100 questions divided in 4 sections. Maximum allotted marks are 400. The cut off of DU JAT will prescribe category wise minimum score required for shortlisting.
  • DU JAT Cut Offs After Marks Equating: As per the past trends the DU JAT cut off marks for top DU colleges for General category may remain between 230 and 240 marks
  • DU Cut off Rank – a Number Game: More than 3 lakh candidates apply for DU UG admissions for various courses. Out of them around 20000 appear in DU JAT exam alone. The DU JAT cut off rank may go up if fewer candidates appear in DU JAT and opt for one college or may go down if more candidates appear in DU JAT and opt for different colleges as first/second preference. Last year DU JAT cut off rank in first cut off for Shaheed Sukhdev colleges was 165+ which after the last cut off list went up to 350+ as many candidates did not initially take admission in the programme offered at other colleges and preferred to opt for this college.
  • DU JAT Difficulty Level: There is inverse relation between DU JAT cut offs and the exam difficulty level. The DU JAT cut offs can go up if exam is easy and may go down if the exam is more difficult.
