    Well that's bad to read you missed 1st division because of few marks.

    However, getting into English honours is not an easy task to accomplished with such low percentage.
    But possibilities are there if you have atleat 60% in English. As most of Colleges ask for at least 60% in the respective subject along with 50% in aggregate for providing admission into honours degree course. However, competition has increased so much that even if University has set minimum requirement to 50% for honours Colleges are asking for higher one and what to say about reputed colleges it seems that they are just wanting to intake toppers only.

    One more problem I am noticing this year is that if student want to get in BA then English then many colleges wants the candidate from Arts background. Similarly, if Arts student want to opt for English honours then eligibility is different for such candidates even with low aggregate whereas its opposite with science candidates as they ask for higher from them.

    Beside these there are few more factors effecting this, but more or less conclusion is that you will get English honours provided that you have at least 60% in English.

    It's depends on marks of English in your 10+2. If you got good marks in English then I think you will get the BA(hons) in English.

    You didn't mention the marks of English in your 10+2. Marks of English is important to get the English honors. Minimum marks to get the English honors is different in different colleges. I think you should have minimum 60% marks in English subject.

    You may not be able to get into the most reputed college for English (Hons.) but you may get into a college where they have entrance examinations for their English course.

    dear friend,you can opt for english honors course as a science student can go for an arts subject after12th.it is a very good option after it you can pursue M.A. in english literature and then M.PHIL AS WELL AS PHD. ALSO
    Many reputed institutes now require english honors as well as M.A candidates as their recruiters and for other various teaching posts.
    now also it holds a respectable position in our society.

    Hello,
    Sorry it cant be said pretty confidently.
    There are may be may not be chances of getting admission for English Honours.
    Honours usually requires a First class First Division mark.

    Chances are less.But then also keep trying.It may be that some Institute would accept your admision.
    Good Luck
    Best Wishes.

    Hey, you have missed your first division by only a few marks. there are a number of colleges which give admission in English(h), if a candidate has scored at least 60% in 12th standard. but it does not means that you cannot get admission in any college for studying English(h). The minimum requirement for taking admission in most of the colleges in any subject is that you should have at least 60%in that required subject and at least 50% in aggregate. Yes, it may be possible to get admission in a college, but reputed colleges usually give admission only on fulfilling minimum percentage requirement. So in my opinion,you can get only the desired college only if you have scored more than 60% in English for getting admission in English(h).

    Hii
    Look getting admission in english honors is not an easy thing.
    Your % is very low.
    Many colleges cut off % is 60.
    Atleast you can try out in freshly recognised colleges .
    Bye

    You want to get in to DU with a 59% ? I am doubtful... you can try other universities...Delhi University asks for very high academic standards..Also try some mediocore colleges of DU, you might be able to get through their 2nd or 3rd cutoff lists...Best of luck!!
