DU refutes CBSE’s Plea for Extra Weightage

DU junks CBSE plea for extra weightage

The CBSE chairman, R K Chaturvedi, had requested Delhi University Vice-Chancellor Yogesh Tyagi,  to tweak DU’s admission policy to provide “appropriate weightage” to CBSE students this year so that they do not suffer disadvantage compared to students from other state boards that inflate their Class XII results.

According to a report in TOI, DU’s admission committee has set up a sub-committee of four college principals to look into CBSE’s request. “There have been issues with the boards from Tamil Nadu, Kerala or Andhra Pradesh among others on inflating marks. But they are not exceptions as even CBSE had been ‘inflating’ marks in the past,” said a DU official. While the policy of moderation has been done away with by CBSE, some boards are already in the process of evaluation of answer sheets, and will implement this decision from next year. This brings disadvantage to DU aspirants from CBSE Board who would suffer as a few boards still award inflated marks which lead to skyrocketing cut-offs every year.

The online registration for undergraduate admissions starts from Monday for courses in which admission is based on cut-off. The online registration process for undergraduate courses, in which an entrance test is conducted, will begin from May 31.
