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.DU FIRST CUT-OFF :DU releases first cut off list ;100 per cent needed in 2 colleges
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.
