Delhi University may consider changing the admission schedule for the session 2017-2018 if Class 12 results get delayed beyond a few days.
“If the issue doesn’t reach a solution soon enough and the results are further delayed, we might have to make a change in the admission schedule,” an official from admission department, source: news18.
The DU official added that so far there is no urgency as admissions in the university were slated for the later part of June.
Amid indications that the government could approach the Supreme Court against a high court verdict forcing the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) to continue its marks moderation policy, HRD Minister on Thursday assured 11 lakh students who appeared for the exam that the results would be declared on time.
The CBSE along with 32 other boards had decided to do away with the marks moderation. However, some states like Kerala and Tamil Nadu had decided not to withdraw the moderation policy this year.
The examination schedule was already delayed this year due to Assembly elections that took place in five states – Uttar Pradesh, Uttarakhand, Punjab, Goa and Manipur. But the HRD Ministry had asked all boards across the country to ensure this didn’t impact declaration of results, as it would have had a knock down effect on students seeking admissions into colleges for under graduate courses.
Delhi University had announced last week that the first admission list will be out on June 20. All applicants seeking admission to undergraduate courses and programs for which the admission is based on class 12 results are required to register online at ug.du.ac.in.
The first cut-off will be out on 20 June, while the academic session is expected to begin on 20 July.
