Delhi HC asks DU to file details of mock tests

Delhi High Court on Thursday asks Delhi University to submit before it the details of the upcoming mock tests.

Earlier the university informed the court that it is all set to begin the mock tests for its final year students from July 27.

“On the next date, we would like to know how your (DU) mock tests went. Give us the entire data on the mock test, and how many students participated,” said a division bench of Justice Hima Kohli and Justice Subramonium Prasad and deferred the matter for further hearing on July 28.

The court mentioned that several petitions had been filed in the Supreme Court, challenging the University Grants Commission’s (UGC) decision and its examination guidelines.

The Delhi High Court has been hearing the petition filed in connection to the final year examinations of DU, including the one filed by the  National Federation of the Blinds.

On Thursday, the Supreme Court informed that in coming days it will be hearing the plea challenging the UGC circular dated on July 6 and intending the cancellation of the final year exams, keeping in view the prevailing health crises.
