This study focuses on colleges offering B.A. Economics (H) in Delhi University and divides students into 3 distinct groups, based on their GPA, namely high performers, poor performers and the average. By proving that the average form the majority in all instances, I measure the capability of colleges to motivate the same to perform better. To do so, I propose a framework that captures the movement of students between the established groups over two years (i.e. 4 semesters). Furthermore, I enunciate that the high dispersion, not only between but within colleges, points towards an institutional inefficiency, suggesting unequal dissemination/absorption of knowledge. Gender Gap Hypothesis is also undertaken. By the end, I devise a supplementary ranking of colleges, keeping in mind the concerns raised above.
