CBSE re-evaluation affects Delhi University!
July 26, 2017
The Delhi High Court on June 11th 2017 said that the ongoing Delhi University admissions would be affected by the outcome of a plea by students seeking re-evaluation of answer sheets of their Class XII examination held this year.
The Delhi high court said that the ongoing Delhi University admissions could be impacted by the Class 12 examination answer sheets submitted to the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) for re-evaluation this year.Last week, the court had lifted all conditions imposed by the CBSE on students seeking to re-evaluate their Class XII answer sheets. The verdict came on a plea filed by advocate Sandeep Bajaj, who was representing four students against the board’s notification limiting the scrutiny of marks to just 12 subjects. Nearly 11 lakh students appeared for the Class 12 exams conducted by the CBSE this year, of which 2.47% applied for re-evaluation.
WHAT ABOUT STUDENTS WHO SECURED ADMISSIONS?
However, Delhi University officials said this need not worry students who have already secured college seats. According to M K Pandit, chairperson of the admissions committee, once a student’s admission is approved and they pay the admission fees, it will not be cancelled even if their marks get reduced after re-evaluation. Admissions will be cancelled only if the student provides the university with fabricated certificates and such malpractice.
Pandit said there are provisions in the university admission guidelines to accommodate students whose grades have increased after re-evaluation. Pandit said college principals and students are aware of the stipulations, and clarifications have also been issued in this regard.
