Delhi University’s (DU) PG admission 2020 will commence from November 18. The University has asked the PG applicants to update their final year mark sheet on the official website. For students whose results have not been announced yet, DU said that they will be admitted provisionally.
The official statement stated, “The admission to some of the courses is either based only through the entrance or through both entrance and merit. All the applicants whose final year results have been declared by the University must update their marks on their dashboard. Applicants whose final year result of the qualifying examination has not been declared yet should wait to update their marks.”
The student’s dream of attaining Post Graduation degree seems a distant reality. Many of the students who appeared for the OBE examinations in July-August has been marked zero or stated absent. The psychological landscape of the students is filled with anxiety. The anxiety that they might not even get admission due to institutional errors. Students have been mailing their grievances to the university but there has been no absolute solution. The students are not eligible for post-graduation courses, they are desperately waiting for the university for rectification of mistakes.
The grievances of DU students
Nitish Kumar Mishra found himself marked absent when the results were announced on October 27. The final year BCOM(H) examinee from Aryabhatta College said. “Even after 18 days, the DU examination department has not rectified the results despite many emails to them”. He is worried that he will miss out on his LLB admissions that starts from Wednesday despite getting a very good score on LLB entrance.
Khavatiya, a philosophy student from Janki Devi Memorial college said, “The DU authorities directed me to a phone number that doesn’t work.”She aspires to pursue post-graduation in Law. She and six of her classmates are in a constant dilemma as the admission process will start soon, they are completely hapless. Their faculty had spoken to the principal, who took up the matter to DU but till now there has been no rectification.
Aakansha, a student of Dyal Singh College, has cleared the entrance for MA in Punjabi at DU. She got her results on November 2 but she is marked absent. She said, “The next day I wrote to the college nodal officer who told me to send screenshots on the mails. I even got a receipt letter from the examination department after uploading my answer sheets.”
DU Dean of examinations said the authorities have been working on the issue since Sunday. He assured, “We will rectify all results in a couple of days.”
We hope the process of rectification starts soon and effaces the distress of students. The pandemic has shrivelled many opportunities for students; may the university’s error be not one of them.
