Delhi University admission– Delhi University might change their admission criteria after the decision of CBSE to cancel the remaining exams for Class 12. On Thursday CBSE informed the supreme court about their decision to cancel the remaining scheduled exams of class 10 & 12. The CBSE introduced a 2 option scheme for class 12 students where they will be evaluated on the basis of their already held exams and later an option would be given to them to sit in improvement examination.
Delhi University Update
Shobha Bagai, Dean of Admissions (DU) said the university will hold a meeting to discuss the changes made by CBSE in their evaluation criteria for undergraduate admissions. She added that most state boards have already declared their results and if the CBSE is not making major changes, we will go ahead with the same process. However, if there are some major changes in the evaluation criteria than it would be difficult for us to assess with it other educational boards and we will have to look for adjustments in the Delhi University admission process.
The majority of the students seeking admission in Delhi University are from CBSE affiliated schools. Pankaj Garg a faculty at DU Rajdhani College and a former member of Delhi University admission committee said that this new evaluation process of CBSE will cause a big problem while calculating the best of four subjects as some important exams Sociology, Hindi, Geography are still pending. Delhi University offers honors courses in all of these subjects so it is necessary to include the marks of these subjects while calculating the marks of best of four. Marking of these subjects on just the basis of internal practicals can be a disadvantage for some talented students who were not able to perform well at that time.
Concern of Principals
Principals for various Delhi University colleges are also complaining about the 2 option scheme of CBSE for class 12th students. Their point is that there is already enough delay in the admission process of Delhi University and the option of giving improvement exams after some time can delay it further. As the majority of students in DU are from CBSE and further delay in the admission process can affect the next academic session of the University.
