So, the qualifying marks is a big, round zero! for Ph.D. Mathematics?
Delhi University’s recent cut-off list for SC/ST students for admissions in Ph.D. Mathematics lists zero as the “minimum marks scored”. Well, it can get any lower than this!
How did the Department of Mathematics at DU even come up with this cut-off? Why does the OBC have to score an 84? Oh, let’s not even heed the sound of the Unreserved’s breaking hearts who have to score a 94 to qualify.
This is the interview schedule that is making everyone irate.
Stunned Twitter @ DU
People are outraged. Rightly so. If this is what the fight, to have the reservation in India, has come to then anyone falling in the General category can simply take a hike.

So an SC student with 40 marks should get opportunity ahead of a GC student with 90%+ marks? Interesting https://t.co/dVj1kIFUz3
