While students celebrated clearing the Class 12 boards, it was not the end of anxiety for them yet as the the long and arduous way to Delhi University cut-off lists lay ahead of them. These lists would determine the course their life takes.
“There are surely celebrations slated for the evening, but we don’t know if the scores will help us get through the tough DU cut-off list,” said Ambika Dua from Bal Bharti School, Pusa Road.
Dua, who scored 94.6 percent in Humanities, aims to pursue economic (Hons) at St. Stephen’s college.
