New Delhi: The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) has announced its results and now it’s time for you to gear up for mission admission.

Of the lakhs of students who got their Class XII results on Sunday, many aim for a top college in Delhi University. The varsity, however, doesn’t really consider your overall score for the purpose of merit. What it primarily needs is your ‘best of four’ form the results announced by CBSE.

Here’s how you can calculate ‘best of four’ subjects:

For BA (Honours)
1. One language, which can be core subject, or elective, or functional
2. The subject that you’re applying for. If you don’t choose that subject as part of your ‘best of four’, you might be at a disadvantage of about 2%

3. Two other subjects from List A

What is List A?

List A includes disciples that are offered by the varsity for admission to its undergraduate programs. The subjects must have 70% theory component and 30% practical component.
List A has the following subjects:
Arabic, French, Mathematics, Punjabi, Bengali, Geography, Music, Sanskrit, Botany, Geology, Persian, Sociology, Chemistry, German, Philosophy, Spanish, Commerce/Accountancy, Hindi, Physical Education, Statistics, Computer Science, History, Physics, Urdu, Economics, Home Science, Political Science, Zoology, English, Italian, Psychology, Legal Studies

For BA (Pass) or B.Com (Pass) courses:

2. Any three elective subjects from List A
