DU told the Delhi High Court that it is working on issuing early results to students who wish to study abroad for higher studies.
The Council of Delhi University, claimed that there are eight students from post-graduation programme and 180 from undergraduate courses that have requested for comfort letters to be submitted to foreign universities for admission.
A bench of Justices Hima Kohli and Subromonium Prasad, granted the university time to come up with solutions by September 15. On Friday, Delhi University told HC that its officials are trying their best to address the issue of early results for the students who wish to go abroad for higher education. It also told the court there are plans to issue “confidential results” for such undergraduate students. The court was asking about the date from which distribution of papers began among evaluators. “This is most unacceptable. We take strong exception to it,” the court said.
- The representer of Delhi University, Advocate Mohinder Rupal, said, “The varsity officials are conferring with each other to come up with the best possible solution to address the anxiety of the students studying in final year undergraduate courses who have applied to foreign universities for admission so that the comfort letters are appropriately worded.” He also said that DU is prioritizing students of PG courses who’ve requested for comfort letters to be sent to foreign universities. For UG courses, discussions are being held to decide about issuance of a confidential result, a tentative result based on the past performance in five semesters, the counsel said, adding that the result would be directly shared with the foreign university.
The High Court asked DU to throw appropriate light on the matter of using CGPA for assessing the results of the UG final year students. The HC also addressed issues faced by students moving abroad for higher education.
The varsity had earlier told the court that the results would be declared at the end of October.
