Professors of Delhi University are demanding a separate arrangement for students from North East Delhi as their Board examinations were postponed due to the communal violence and it puts those students at a disadvantage.
These apprehensions came in after CBSE announced to declare results of the students based on the exams they have appeared in and on the basis of internal, practical, or project assessment. But the professors claim that in the 12th, students do not usually take the internals seriously.
According to Pankaj Garg, a former member of Delhi University’s academic council, the new date-sheet for pending CBSE exams which were going to be held in July included all science stream subjects for those students who were affected during the riots. The university should keep a separate window for these students. According to the current scenario, the new session might not begin before October so the varsity must keep a window open for these students who will take the exams later.
According to an executive council member Rajesh Jha, the cut-offs will not be affected but students with certain kinds of subject combinations who are relying on particular subjects from the pending exams might get affected. The admission policy cannot be changed at this time but a separate arrangement can be made for those students who were affected firstly by the riots and then the Pandemic.
According to the Dean of Admissions, the cut-offs will depend on the results declared by CBSE. Some changes might have to take place for certain subjects after consulting with the committee but then can be done only after the results are out.
